If You Want All The Credit, You Must Be Willing To Take All The Blame

Very seldom is something accomplished because of one
person's efforts. It takes a village, a team, or a few
committed individuals supporting the effort. Unfortunately,
some people don't want to share the credit with those who
have supported them through thick and thin. The problem
with wanting to take all the credit is, to do so, we must be
willing to also take all the blame too.

Very seldom is something accomplished because of one
person's efforts. It takes a village, a team, or a few
committed individuals supporting the effort. Unfortunately,
some people don't want to share the credit with those who
have supported them through thick and thin. The problem
with wanting to take all the credit is, to do so, we must be
willing to also take all the blame too.

Funny how some people will take all the credit for something
that turns out great, but look to lay the blame on others
when things don't turn out as planned. We have to decide
early on how we want to play it. If we don't want to share
the credit, then we can't share the blame either. Taking
all the credit means taking all the responsibility.

Eventually those who support us and help us achieve our
goals will grow tired of never getting credit for their
contributions and will depart. When this happens, we won't
have anyone to blame but ourselves. People want and need to
be recognized for their contributions. Letting those who
are responsible for making it possible for us to do the
things we do is a sure way to guarantee we will continue to
receive the support and help we need.

I have attended few award ceremonies where the person
receiving the award did not acknowledge all those people in
their life that made it possible. People thank everyone
from their director to their dog. The wise person realizes
that it takes more than individual effort to achieve in
life. It takes a strong support structure to allow us to
venture out into the world and make things happen. No one
does it alone. There is no such thing as a self-made
person. There are literally hundreds of people responsible
for our evolution. We would not be where we are or who we
are if it wasn't for all the people that have touched our
lives.

Many people are ready to take the credit when things go
well. Few are willing to step up and take the blame. Being
able to take the blame as well as the credit is a sign of
integrity and honor. Yes, we do deserve some of the credit
for our accomplishments. We also deserve the blame when
something does not turn out like we plan. Acknowledging the
credit as well as the blame is a way of maintaining and
building on our personal power.
