We all have discomfort accepting blame. But assuming responsibility for what happened is not about accepting blame. It’s not about abdicating other people’s behavior or their accountability either. It’s just about looking at where you’re responsible and accepting your role. In that, you can find peace.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  1. In the challenges that many of us face, there’s something going on outside of ourselves – things that we have no control over. Because of that, our brain wants the easiest path forward which means there’s judgement, and we look for someone to blame.
  2. While we’re busy looking for someone to blame, we don’t see the role that we have in that situation.
  3. Where in your life is there an opportunity for you to look at a circumstance where you want it to be someone else’s fault?
  4. It’s not about abdicating other people’s behavior or their accountability. It’s just about looking at where you’re responsible.
  5. Once we look at our role in it, we can find peace.
