Character is Built

How many times do we deal with people monthly, weekly and even daily that make a mistake?  How many times do we make mistakes?  Here’s something we all need to be reminded of  “accept the responsibility, it WAS your fault and move forward.”

Passing the buck NEVER gets us anywhere.  Next time you make a critical error admit you’re the one to blame and move forward.  Creating a faccad of it being another’s fault will irritate any other person involved in your screw up.  If we can simply learn to understand that people ARE mad for a reason but will respect you and value you more as a professional if we simply mutter the words “I’m sorry, that was entirely my fault” no matter how hard it might be.  

Admitting you were the one at fault is difficult to do and it’s a learned behavior.  Nobody likes to be wrong but character is built when doing the right thing is the hardest decision to be made.
