Blame Shifters


Tom Corley boats - crop

Humility is a hallmark of the successful. Successful, self-made millionaires become humble during their journey towards success. They become humble because they are focused on succeeding and because they are focused on succeeding they seek the truth.

When things go wrong, success-minded people seek the truth, rather than someone to blame. Sometimes the truth is that you screwed up. Self-made millionaires park their egos and embrace their mistakes, enabling them to learn from them. They make a habit of accepting responsibility when things go wrong.

Those who never take risks in pursuit of success have a penchant for assigning blame to everything that goes wrong in their lives. They have the Poor Habit of avoiding responsibility when things go wrong. These Blame Shifters are not interested in the truth. Instead, they outsource the blame for the mistake to someone or something else. Consequently, they never learn from their mistakes. 

You must avoid Blame Shifters like the plague. Specifically, you must never allow them to become part of your dream team – individuals you rely on to help you realize your dream. Blame Shifters are not interested in seeking the truth – the real cause of the mistake. They are only interested in assigning blame to protect their egos.
