Everywhere you look, people are struggling. People always blame their job, their boss, their family or the economy for their current set of circumstances. While all of these things may have an impact on your life, nobody controls your life but you!

It’s never the circumstances in life determining your success – it’s how you deal with those circumstances. But I can tell you, excuses and blame will never get you results. Sadly, you can get comfortable, stay exactly where you are and just write off success as “not for you”… or you can take responsibility for your own success!

I had an image up on my Facebook page awhile back that said “You can design your life to be whatever you want it to be!” One comment said, “This is not true… I am unemployed and have no experience in the areas where there is work, so I can’t do what I want to do. This is reality… not a false-hope-building statement.” Later he said, “Life is impossible, unless you have money.”

You have this mindset that you can’t do anything about the fact you are unemployed or you can’t change your spouse’s spending. With this mindset, you allow yourself TO DO NOTHING. It turns into this cycle of blaming, staying stuck and continuing to blame, without trying to improve yourself.

When I was first hired by JCPenney, I had zero skills. I was a dropout! HELLO! You do not need specific experience or skills sets to get a job.

Instead of focusing on what keeps holding you back, focus on how you can get around it. How can you increase your skill sets now, to prepare for the job you want? How can you increase your bank account numbers now?

Instead of blaming others, work toward the skill sets you need to succeed NOW. Stop using other people as a scapegoat for your lack of knowledge or skill sets! Let me know your thoughts in the comments below and remember to Like and Share today’s post to spread this message.
