The blame game

“A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame someone else.”

~ John Burroughs

If you want something done the way you want it done, then do it yourself. That way, if it wasn’t done according to the way you wanted it, you only have yourself to blame. We are responsible for ourselves in this life and we shouldn’t be pointing fingers at others for not doing what we should of done ourselves. Just because something you did wasn’t done right doesn’t mean that you failed, so keep trying until you get it right. Just make sure you only blame yourself if you can’t. Failure shouldn’t be an option if you keep trying.
