In today’s show, Chris interviews Patrick Lalonde, VP, Student Works who talks about shedding the victim mindset and taking full and complete responsibility for your life.
Unless you realize that no one but you is responsible for the consequences of your actions, you will never achieve the level of success that you are yearning for.
When you fail, it is tempting to blame things that are beyond your control. You blame society. You blame the government. You blame the economy. And you blame your luck. And when you embrace this victim mindset, you are essentially relegating yourself to backseat driving. You are not in charge of your life.
However, if you lead with 100% accountability, you will learn from your failures. You will evaluate every setback, harness your learnings, and put structures in place so that you don’t make the same mistake again.
Towards the end, we discuss how taking responsibility can help you build stronger personal relationships as well. Enjoy!
