I just saw an interesting thread with the title "stop immigration---i want to buy a house". It seems the author is blaming immigration for his affordability problem.
This made me think. And i realized something.
The 1st step toward my own success is stop blaming. Today I can blame immigration and tomorrow i can blame politicians and the day after tomorrow i can blame interest rates or weather or whatever....and the list goes on and on. If i try, i can ALWAYS find someone or something to blame so that i don't have to feel that bad about myself---anyway it's not my fault, it's someone else's.
In hindsight as long as i was still in that "others to blame" mindset, i was not actually doing anything, not to mention achieving anything. I was being cynical and lost my vision and self-motivation.
I personally like the following very much:
"Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you."
