Why People Blame Themselves

This isn’t just false modesty or fishing for reassurance; some people do believe that they cause every bad thing all or most of the time.

Blaming yourself when something goes wrong might, relates to a general tendency to make internal attributions for failure in which you see yourself as inept, foolish, or irresponsible. That tendency might motivate you to attribute your successes to external factors, such as fate, chance or luck, as well. 

Blame And Consequence

Theoretically, anyone who intentionally practices an immoral act is culpable regardless of the consequences. But in most cases, people sign up for what is called “moral luck”.

Moral luck is the belief that you should hold someone to blame only if the action causes harm to others, not for their intent, and according to it, those whose actions bring harm are more culpable.

The victim mindset

It happens when we focus on how you believe other people are doing you wrong or what you think they are doing to cause you pain. It means focusing on other people's flaws and how you feel mistreated.
This fuels feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and despair.

Looking in the right direction

How someone else treats you is outside your control.
But noticing who or what you are exposing yourself to is within your control. And so you should focus on that.

Mindsets in the workplace

We spend half of our day at work (and even more) and both our mindset and the mindset of those around us will have a significant impact on our life, especially the mindset of our leaders.

The fixed mindset in the workplace
  • It doesn’t easily allow you to change course.
  • It doesn't  believe in growth,  but in right and wrong and any suggestion of change or adaptation is considered a criticism.
  • Challenges or obstacles tend activate defensive mechanisms.
  • When something goes wrong, it doesn't take responsibility- it blame others because that would be akin to accepting inferiority.
  • Believes in a world of hierarchy: where some people are superior and some are inferior. 
Creating a growth-mindset environment
  • Presenting skills as learnable
  • Conveying that the environment values learning and perseverance, not just ready-made genius or talent
  • Giving feedback in a way that promotes learning and future success.
