Yes, It's All Your Fault: Active vs. Passive Mindsets


The hard truth is that most things in your life - good and bad - are your fault. The sooner you realize that, the better things will be. Here’s how to cultivate an active mindset and take control of your life.

What happens when someone repeatedly says it - whatever "it" may be - is not their fault?

"It's not my fault I was late for the meeting. Traffic was bad."

"It's not my fault I lost money. I got the stock tip from a friend."

"It's not my fault I don’t have the skills for the job and was laid off. They should have trained me."

I don't want to get into edge cases. But most of the time these kinds of things are your fault. And if you don’t see that, you’re going to continue to find yourself in these situations over and over again.

You should have planned for traffic. You made a terrible investment and you have no idea what you’re doing. Stop waiting for people to teach you the skills you need to earn a living and go learn them.

When the passive mindset takes over, you say another phrase that drives me batty: "I can't." Actually, yes you can, you’re just not willing to pay the price. You’re not willing to do the work or spend the time. You’re not willing to do something hard. You're not willing to sacrifice what's needed.
