Everything’s you’re own fault if you’re any damn good.
I picked this quote because it brings to light a certain feature of successful people. They do not place blame. They take responsibility for their own success. If you want to be successful you need to take responsibility for your own success and more important your failures. Own up to your failures, even those you don’t think you can or could have done anything about, because chances are you can or could have done something about it. We have the opportunity to learn much more from our failures than our successes.
