Old way of thinking: take the credit, point the blame. This is how most people operate.
New way of thinking: take the blame, point the credit. This is how the greats operate.
Take the blame
We’re responsible for our actions or lack there of.
What could have we done differently?
No pointing fingers at others.
What did we do wrong?
We don’t have to respond with blame on others, we choose to.
Point the credit
We’re responsible for creating incredible things.
You play a role. So do others.
Point the credit to others as often as you can.
For example, my blog post goes viral – I can only thank the tools I have in front of me, the people who made and manage them, and the inspiration around me because without them all a viral blog post would not even be a thing.
We see you putting in the work, however there are no gold stars in life. What we get are feelings.
We feel happy and accomplished for example even if it’s just for the time being.
And when we point credit, we give these gifts of happiness to others.
We feel happy and now so do they 🙂
Give credit instead of taking credit. When you point credit to others, you are giving them a gift of happiness and a fine reputation to hold up.
Self reflect instead of pointing fingers. When you take blame and reflect on your actions, you grow as an individual and show up in the world a better person.
