A few years ago Jack Canfield wrote a book called The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. One of the principles he talks about is the idea that successful people take 100% responsibility for the actions and the results they get in life.
On the surface it doesn’t sound too difficult, but it becomes very easy to blame other people, or to blame circumstances for things not turning out right. In his book, he talks about a formula that state E+R=O. E stands for Events, R stands for Response, and O stands for Outcome….so events + response=outcome.
