Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Blame is Never the Answer

Blame is Never the Answer

Blame is Never the Answer

“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault

you find with another, and regardless of how much

you blame him, it will not change you.”

Wayne Dryer, Self-Help Author, Motivational Speaker


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Blame is never the answer


Blame won’t change the conditions . . . . and in all likelihood will make things worse.


Blame is not a productive activity . . . . its drains your energy and produces no positive results.


The person who spends their time in blaming others for their results . . . . or circumstances. Is investing their time . . . . in a negative activity that will product no redeeming value for their time.


Take the personal responsibility for the conditions in your life . . . . and invest your time in adjusting the conditions . . . . and correcting the condition that need to be changed.


Blame is a weak excuse . . . . for your conditions.


Taking responsibility  . . . . for your conditions becomes a game changer in your life. By taking responsibility you are assuming the personal responsibility for your future . . . . and your future success.


Blame is never the answer . . . . The key to your future is personal responsibility for your choices . . . . your actions . . . . and your results.

Very wise words Lou. Take responsibility for your actions and learn from your mistakes. It's that simple. Blame is nothing but a time waster.

Hi Lou: Taking responsibility and accountability is more productive and courageous than throwing blame on others.

The older I get it seems the more blame seems to circulate.  What a drain on society when we hear the words "Wasn't me, I didn't do it!."

Hello Lou,  You are so right,  I once blame things on someone else and really I should of stick to me guns and done what I knew was the think to do.  I am back to it and it is payoff off.

Another eye opening blog. Blame never solves any problem and as a matter of fact it usually makes things worse. To change the situation, one must act on it to change the condition in order to have different results.

Agree Lou. It's not a biggie to admit mistakes, really. Thanks for enlightening us.

To forgive Devine. The bible says one of the hardest tasks is to forgive but once you do your heart will be right.

Blame, never results in positive activity.  It never accomplishes the task that needs attention.  It becomes a weak excuse for NOT making sure it gets done, properly.
