Do you easily take ownership of your mistakes?

How often do you take ownership of your mistakes without blaming it on something or someone?

Especially the devil, I don’t know about where you are. But wher I am, most people when they have no one to blame for the mistakes or something to use as an excuse. Then the devil is used as the guine pig. And they will easily blame it on the devil/demons. Not forgetting parents, friends, enemies, collegues, cars, alarm, and the list is endless. Am not very sure if that’s suppossed to be the case.

The more we keep looking for excuses and things/people to blame for our mess. We deny ourselves an opportunity to learn from them. Sometime, its true something or someone may have contributed to our mess. But we remain the CEO of your life, hence have the final go ahead in everything you do.

What about you? Do you take ownership of your mistakes?

  1. Easily? No, never. My first instinct is always to find a way to blame someone or something. Generally speaking, I don’t follow through with that instinct. I think I take ownership of my mistakes almost always. I do this because the truth will always come out, and my credibility & reputation mean a lot to me.

    Also, I’m in a profession in which blaming one’s support staff is the easiest way to make yourself look like an idiot. They may prepare the documents I sign & present, but I’m the one presenting them. It’s my responsibility to ensure they’re accurate.
