“For each one should carry their own load.”
– Galatians 6:5
I believe that the greatest enemy to achievement is blame. If you’re looking for something to blame, I promise you will find it. You can blame your environment, blame people who hurt you, blame your challenges, and blame your disadvantages because life will never be fair. There are going to be times in your life when you’re going to have advantages and there will be times when you have disadvantages. Until Christ returns, you will never live in a fair utopia — it’s a part of this life. So achievement is the ability to keep one’s own purpose and goals before his or her mind, despite the fact that he or she has problems, flaws, disadvantages, and enemies.
Help me, God, to not default to blame in my life. Help me to accept the unfairness of this life and not let it deter me from accomplishing my goals.
Do you like to blame your circumstances?
