Well, we all know about this other game as well and we also play it very often. It’s just that we don’t focus hard on understanding that we play it consciously or unconsciously.

Now don’t say to yourself that you already knew this.

Why do we like to play the Blame Game?

· Easy way of Self Defense
· A way to hide your weakness
· The best way of procrastination
· A way of Escapism

Let’s look at each point

Easy way of Self Defense

As humans we are very good at self defense. We all know how to protect ourselves and this is important in life. However, when the self defense is used to cover our mistakes or as a reason for not completing a task on time then it’s not a good idea. It can give you a level of comfort but pushes you behind mentally and stops you from growing. Believe me, you will then always find reasons for all your failures and blame something or someone for your failure.

A way to hide your Weakness

Weakness and Strengths is a part of everyone’s personalities. We will be weak at something always unless we gain knowledge or master a particular skill required to be used in our daily lives. Accepting that we are weak not due to our mind but the lack of knowledge will allow us to learn new things and avoid the blame game. Sometimes we are given a task and we reject it upfront showing our weakness of not knowing how to complete it. This way we lose a new opportunity coming our way in which we could learn and master something new and who is responsible. The blame of lack of knowledge.

The best way to Procrastinate

Procrastination has become like an epidemic in which we keep postponing tasks which maybe important for us to finish and may sometimes require us to be disciplined. However, the effort to continuously be disciplined is tough. For example as writers, we need to write everyday in order to keep the thoughts flowing but sitting and writing feels tough sometimes due to lack of ideas or not being focused. It just requires an effort to write something even if it’s small but we blame lack of ideas, time, no motivation, etc for not doing writing and keep pushing it behind.

A way of Escapism

It is very easy to blame others and get away but it is very difficult to stand and accept our mistakes. Blaming People, Situations and Lack of something can make us escape but it does not allow us to move up and achieve something higher. For a very long time we play the blame game in life and feel like a victim and this blame game becomes a part of our daily lives.

Ill Effects of Blame Game

· Restricts Growth
· Makes you feel like a victim
· Makes you an excuse box
· Strains your Relationships

How can we avoid playing the Blame Game?

· Accept Mistakes
· Always be ready to Learn new things
· Take Responsibility for your actions
· Face your fears

I am sure that all these tips if used well can get you rid of the BLAME game and take you to a different level of life.

Don’t Blame anyone or anything.

To achieve Success Try ANGLE


Each one of you would like to achieve success but with so much of uncertainty in life, success seems far away.

Do you see the “You” and “Steps” which are far away from each other and “SUCCESS” is right on the top?

Does that mean that you will have to climb a mountain to achieve success?

I won’t lie but the fact is that there are some steps that you can follow backed with self discipline which can help you achieve success.

What is Success?

Success is to achieve something in life but it’s a part of the journey called LIFE. It does not end with just one task achieved.

As a student, success is to complete graduation. As a working professional, it’s getting a good job or getting a promotion. As a retired person it’s the financial security. In relationships it is to be able to be there when required.

The meaning keeps changing at each level of life but there are some common steps at each level to achieve success.

5 Steps which can ensure success

As the title says that “To Achieve Success try ANGLE”

Well Angle is nothing but a combination of 5 steps put together.

Let’s look at these steps in detail


Whenever you want to achieve success in anything you do, you have to first accept that there are some skill sets that you possess and there are some new skill sets that you need to learn to be able to be successful.

Example: You want to do business. Now you maybe a very true person by heart and don’t like to cheat people which is a good quality. However you may not have the understanding of the other aspects of business or may lack the risk taking ability. In this case you may have to develop a new mindset of learning these things.


One you have the accepted that you need new skill sets, you need to work towards gaining them.

This can be done either through

· Reading Books
· Watching Inspirational Videos
· Speaking to other people about their journey of business

Once you start thinking like an entrepreneur, your mind will adjust accordingly to the situations and guide you in the decision making process. The references or knowledge that you would have gained from the books, videos or conversations can also be used to counter similar situations/issues.


Whenever you speak of success, the first thing that strikes the mind is to achieve. While achieving is exactly what we plan to do, giving attitude is also a part of achieving. You know that we live in a world where it’s all about exchanging ideas and other things such as love, respect, gratitude, etc.

While they don’t cost us anything, they human attitude within us restricts us to exchange these.

Example: You want to become an artist and you have struggled your way up to where you are now in life. On the way there were many people who stood by your side and motivated you like

· Your Parents
· Your Colleagues
· Your Neighborhood
· Your Guru
· Your Local Shop Keeper & many more

Did you do something special as a token of appreciation of their efforts or got so busy that you don’t even have the time to speak and thank them?


Who loves you the most? While GOD and your parents love you the most and care for you in unspoken ways, you should also ask yourself “Do I love myself?”

How can you judge that?

· Do you believe in what you do?
· Are you guided by your inner conscious or people?
· Do you know what’s right for you?
· Do you say to yourself that “I Love Myself”?

These are a few questions you can ask yourself and look at the answers your mind gives you. Unless you love yourself, loving others is impossible. If you love yourself then you will appreciate yourself at every small goal you achieve and keep moving forward towards success.


Just as we are reaching the top of the mountain, we tend to give up. This happens with even the best of the people with years of experience. A classic example to this is mentioned below

Thomas Edison

In what might be at once the most discouraging statement and worst teaching practice of all time, Thomas Edison was told by his teachers he was ‘too stupid to learn anything’.

Edison went on to hold more than 1,000 patents, including the phonograph and practical electric lamp. Death most likely spared his teachers the ignominy of their incorrect assessment.

If Thomas Edison would have given up with just those words then we probably would be still  living in darkness.

Always remember that you, yes you have the power to create a Magic in your life. Just go out there with all the enthusiasm and JUST DO IT…

Success is then a part of your LIFE in everything you do.
