WEBVTT 1 00:00:10.349 --> 00:00:17.070 Good Day, my friend. Welcome to a moment with modes. Thank you 2 00:00:17.269 --> 00:00:22.859 so much for downloading the show. I am so happy that you're able to 3 00:00:23.019 --> 00:00:31.300 join me today. Tuesday, Speaker's Corner Louise Hay joins the show and Louise 4 00:00:31.500 --> 00:00:38.450 tells US blame is one of the surest ways to stay in a problem. 5 00:00:39.729 --> 00:00:46.810 In blaming another, we give away our power. Understanding enables us to rise 6 00:00:46.850 --> 00:00:52.920 above the issue and take control of our future. As you know, my 7 00:00:53.159 --> 00:00:58.520 friend, life doesn't always go the way we think it's going to go. 8 00:00:59.679 --> 00:01:04.989 We talked about this yesterday. The plan we may can often go awry. 9 00:01:06.909 --> 00:01:11.629 Things can go wrong, mistakes can get made and sometimes it's something we did, 10 00:01:11.709 --> 00:01:19.500 sometimes at something think someone else did, and sometimes it's just the way 11 00:01:19.620 --> 00:01:26.540 it is. But we live in a society now where it's where it's easy 12 00:01:26.859 --> 00:01:34.290 for us to point the finger at someone or at something else, anything that's 13 00:01:34.489 --> 00:01:44.890 not us. It's easy and almost almost expected to lay the blame on someone 14 00:01:45.010 --> 00:01:53.560 else. Blame is to find as a signing responsibility or a vault or raw. 15 00:01:53.879 --> 00:01:57.480 We can all get caught up in it. I knew a guy who 16 00:01:57.519 --> 00:02:05.510 had a month to do and hand in a project on the final night, 17 00:02:06.310 --> 00:02:09.789 and this is true story, on a final night there was a storm and 18 00:02:09.990 --> 00:02:16.659 he lost power and he missed the deadline. The next day. Of course 19 00:02:17.379 --> 00:02:23.659 he blamed the storm and the power going out for his missing the deadline. 20 00:02:23.460 --> 00:02:30.210 He never once looked at himself. He never once, not maybe if I 21 00:02:30.449 --> 00:02:38.610 didn't wait until the last hour of the last day. Now I'm not above 22 00:02:38.729 --> 00:02:44.599 this kind of behavior myself. If mom had work and the Palette I loaded 23 00:02:45.599 --> 00:02:50.000 on the machine is constant an issue, I'll try and tell my boss it 24 00:02:50.159 --> 00:02:54.919 was the afternoon die. This just just happened to me on Friday. We 25 00:02:55.039 --> 00:03:00.229 have a new machine. I loaded for palettes onto it. The other guide 26 00:03:00.229 --> 00:03:06.629 loaded eight. The Palette I was working on Friday had an issue. It 27 00:03:06.830 --> 00:03:14.020 was on wrong and my boss just automatically blamed the other guy and I just 28 00:03:14.139 --> 00:03:17.419 let him get away with it. I just said Yeah, and I knew 29 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:23.620 full well it was me. And why do we do this? Wow, 30 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:30.129 easy. We don't want these things and they're always negative things. We don't 31 00:03:30.169 --> 00:03:36.770 want these things to be our fault. We don't want to be guilty or 32 00:03:37.289 --> 00:03:45.840 or caught making a mistake. We want to feel better or superior to the 33 00:03:46.039 --> 00:03:53.800 person we're blaming, but blaming others for our fockops, we are actually hurting 34 00:03:53.000 --> 00:04:01.870 ourselves and given our power away. When we refuse to accept responsibility, we 35 00:04:02.110 --> 00:04:10.340 refuse to learn from the situation. If we don't accept responsibility, we don't 36 00:04:10.379 --> 00:04:15.580 think there's anything for us to learn. When we refuse to learn from a 37 00:04:15.780 --> 00:04:23.420 situation, when we aren't learning from our mistakes, we're doomed to repeat them. 38 00:04:24.569 --> 00:04:31.250 When we remember that mistakes are actually learning experiences and if we accept our 39 00:04:31.410 --> 00:04:39.639 responsibility for the way things turn out, we take back our power and we 40 00:04:40.000 --> 00:04:48.439 learn and we move forward carpet momentum. I'll talk to you tomorrow.
