Don’t depend on your mother or anybody else to buy or cut up your vegetables for you
– Gary Halburt
When we rely on others it gives us an excuse as to why we failed.
As Gary wrote to his son whilst in prison
what we should do is develop a strong independent attitude
Other people have there own things going on and they may forget that they have agreed to do you a favour, they may also not do what you wanted correctly causing you to fail.
Their actions are out of your control and the only thing in your control is your own actions.
Hold yourself accountable instead of
‘Its not my fault they forgot to buy me my vegtables’
‘Its not my fault my colleges didn’t do their end of the work’
Its all your fault if you didn’t do the work yourself.
