There are days when you plan and even work towards a goal but end up failing. Plans fail and targets go beyond your reach. On such days, it is how you respond to these failures that determines whether or not you succeed at the end.

This reaction is that of taking responsibility. 

Whether things work out or not is not a function of external factors. You make your decisions and just as you’re ready to take credit for their success, so must you be ready to accept failure. To embrace the results that accompany your plans and actions. 

Accepting failure doesn’t mean resigning to fate, neither does it mean giving up on achieving your goals. It means taking responsibility for how your actions turned out. Remember, it is our actions that birth our life’s activities. Everything you do begins in the mind, is translated through action and births success or failure.

Blaming external factors won’t do you any good as it doesn’t create a roadmap for trying again everytime your formula fails until it finally succeeds.

You don’t get better by getting bitter. When something doesn’t work out for you, the best approach is to forge ahead and try again. There’s no value in blame games embrace your results – take responsibility. 

The moment you fail to take responsibility for the outcomes that follow the actions you took, your shot at succeeding goes farther away from your reach.
