STOP AND THINK – Almost all unhappiness in life comes from the tendency to blame someone else. (Brian Tracey, motivational speaker and author)

When we don’t achieve what we had hoped to, how do we respond? Do we consider our planning, our approach to the task, and our perseverance? Or, do we look for someone to blame? That may be the easy way out, but it doesn’t help to accomplish our goal. And, what’s worse, it may diminish our own sense of self-worth.

Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me. (Matthew 11:6)
