Success and Failure have two letters in common, U and E. What do they stand for? Let’s start with U.
First, the U stands for YOU, meaning you as a person have a KEY ROLE to play in your story be it a success story or that of a failure.
There are other factors to praise or blame in your success or failure story, but the major decision maker of your life is YOU. You’re like the DIRECTOR of your own story, it is the shots you call every other person working on the project of your life sticks to. You’re the “god on the set” when it comes to your own personal story.
The combination of the series of shots you’ve called so far, the ones you’re calling presently and the ones you will yet call will determine if the project of your life will come out successful or not.
Therefore, the first person to BLAME for your failure so far is YOU. Likewise, the first person to PRAISE for your success so far is YOU. When an athlete does well on the field, before you know his coach, HIS NAME would have been chanted a million times and vice versa.
What shots are YOU calling? Your life is first YOUR RESPONSIBILITY, before it becomes the responsibility of others.
