Imagine two managers. Who have achieved staggering success with their company, and always has customers queuing outside the door.
A sudden shift in market trends forces things to change. The next month, no one is coming to buy. -
Now, this is a huge problem for both of them and their companies. -
However, the philosophy of each manager would hugely affect the way things turn out. - There are two major philosophies that come into play here.
The Victim philosophy, and the accountable philosophy. Each manager has one -

3. Thinks: "Things wouldn't be this way if everyone does their job"! (Blames)
4. " It's not my job" (Gives excuses)
5. "If it was meant to be, it would be". (Hopes)
And afterwards, things crumble and.... He says "I did me best". 😒. _______________________________
The manager with an accountable philosophy also has five stages.
1. He asks. " What the hell is happening "? (Seeks reality)
2. "This is the way it is" (Acknowledges the complete truth, not just his version of it)
3. Says. "If things are going to get better, then it's up to me" (owns the situation") 4. "What can I do"? (Finds Solution)
5. " Fuck it, let's do this" (Gets on with it). Of these two managers, who would you rather have handle your company? The accountable one, right? -
I see a lot of youths play the victim, and it's disappointing at best. The way our world works, perception is everything. -
The way you see your obstacles would hugely determine how those obstacles affect your life. There are no good or bad experiences, only learning experiences. -
You have to own your obstacles, be accountable, and
