IT'S MY FAULT (Secret For Achieving Great Success In Life) By Gbadebo Dahunsi

Gbadebo Dahunsi
GBADEBO DAHUNSI,
Author/Personal Development Coach


God is not stupid or so biased that he would make someone Dangote and another person beggar in the streets of Lagos. We're all equal in His sight.


But what about the wide gap between the rich and the poor? It was created by individual's mindset, choices and actions. Although many won't believe this, but it is the truth. Among the greatest problems facing humankind are irresponsibility and excuses. This has started since the time of Adam and Eve. When something goes wrong, we look for who to put the blame on, instead of accepting the full responsibility, forgive ourselves and look for the way forward. Adam put the blame on 'the woman you gave me', instead saying 'I'm sorry, please forgive me O Lord.' And the woman again shifted the blame to 'the serpent'.


You're responsible, either directly or indirectly for anything that happens to your life. I understood there are certain events and occurrences that are beyond our (direct) control. Yet, we can still do something. If we can't control or stop them from happening, we can control the way we react or respond to them. And this matters a lot.


I remember when I saw my first result in the university. My 100 level first semester result was horrible. But I didn't shift the blame to my lecturers. In stead, I accepted my fault and looked for way forward. And that's why I succeeded! My subsequent performances were better and I went on to become a course representative, popular biochemistry tutor, financial secretary of NSBS and I authored my first book in 400 level.


Positive reactions can calm, cure or even change a negative event. And by carefully watching our actions and remain focused in times of difficulties, we can turn things around for better for ourselves. But only if we'll first learn to accept responsibility.


My dad is poor (and so I was born poor), yes its his fault. But if I live my entire life a poor man, its my fault. Yes it's my fault because success is not for a special set of people, but for all. Life is like a blank cheque issued to everyone by God the creator, to fill in what we want in life with our own hands. What you fill in is what you get.


What are you filling into your own cheque?
You don't fill with mouth but with work: vision, decisions, determination and actions.


Many were born poorer than me and you, but they wrestled and defeated poverty. Today, their names are mentioned wherever success is being discussed. Go and read the biographies of people like Dangote, Ben Carson, Goodluck Jonathan, Bill Gates, Okonjo Iweala, Alakija etc and you'll have a better understanding of what I'm talking about here.


Now look into yourself. Check for those things you don't like in your life and say to yourself "IT'S MY FAULT". You know why this is important? Because if you keep claiming it's not your fault, then you'll never see it as your duty to work out the solution and break through.


Success starts from accepting full responsibility for one's life and be determined to change your own story by paying the price. The price? Sacrifice! Learning, working and keep working until you get there.
