It is really easy to blame other people when you can’t do something, when constraints get in the way. To rail against the inadequacies in life, to find somebody to blame.
It makes us feel vindicated, it isn’t our fault, and because it isn’t our fault we can’t be held accountable. Poor performance becomes OK. We have an excuse. But because we have an excuse we stop, we don’t achieve what we could.
Have a look at the video. Here is a man with an excuse, a proper one, yet he has turned it to his advantage.
What could you achieve if you worked within your constraints rather than letting them become your excuse?
