Another tip for success in your business and life is to accept responsibility for everything that happens good or bad and even for things that you have no control over.

Let me explain myself.

When I ran a large sales organisation it was common for the sales people to blame the client for not buying. They would be full of excuses with all the reasons why it was the not their fault.

The sales person would go home safe in the knowledge that it was not their fault. They would come in the following day and strangely enough have another bad day due to the crap leads they have been given!

As soon as you pass the blame you lose.

The best sales people always believed that they had done something wrong and this attitude meant that they did something about it, they looked for ways to improve next time, not wanting to make the same mistake again.Even if it was not their fault they still took responsibility.

No one likes to be criticized and it can be hard to be self critical but believe me if you take the blame for everything that happens then you will see improvements in every area of your life.

so take a tip from me when things are not going right, look in the mirror and ask “what could I have done different” and “what am I going to do next time?”

Take responsibility for everything your successes and your failures
