Blaming stops you from being accountable

Blaming Stops You From Being Accountable

We all know that blaming is not good, yet we all do it. Blaming is a choice and a behavior we have control over. If you choose to take a look at yourself and be honest with where you are not being accountable to your behaviors that you don’t like, this is the first step in stopping the blame game with yourself.

Brene Brown gives a great example of how blaming behavior may show up in this 3 minute video.

Blaming fuels the flames of doubt, low self-esteem and not living into your best self today. The choice is yours.

I love this poem that sums it up:

I have come to the frightening conclusion
That I am the decisive element.
It is my personal approach that creates the climate.
It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration;
I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that decides
Whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated,
And a person humanized or de-humanized.
If we treat people as they are, we make them worse.
If we treat people as they ought to be,
We help them become what they are capable of becoming.

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)

If we can focus on being accountable to the behaviors that exhibit our kindness and generosity, we can then support others in raising their awareness about their own brilliance through our actions, words and behaviors. Imagine the impact this can make in your family, with your team, and in the organization, you lead.
