I love entrepreneurship.
One of the things I love the most about entrepreneurship is Freedom. If you’ve been around me long enough, you’ve probably heard me say this.
The primary reason (there are a few) why I say this is because working for myself gives me control. When I say control, I mean the freedom to create plans and make decisions that will steer my outcomes.
When things don’t work out as planned (and sometimes they don’t), I also have the power to tweak my initial plan or start from scratch.
At the end of the day, I am solely responsible for my decisions, thus allowing me to blame no one other than myself when things do not work out.
I have the freedom and control to choose whether or not to move forward.
Bottom line is, I take full responsibility for every decision I make and every outcome it creates, even the things that are out of my control.
There is an important reason for this…
When you play the blame game (blaming others for your failures or lack of results) you have now given them control over your next steps.
When you are able to blame yourself and accept total responsibility, you have now armed yourself with the power to press ahead and continue towards finding a solution.
