- “It’s not my fault.”
There’s a tendency to deny responsibility for your actions and your bad decisions. It’s so convenient to blame someone else for your failures and shortcomings.
- “I may be entitled to monetary compensation.”
In the modern age of litigation, not only do you blame others for your incompetency and lack of judgment, you seek compensation from those whom you have placed blame and expect to reap great rewards for your stupidity.
- “I can get the ______ that I deserve.”
The idea that you deserve things like good credit, cell phones, computers, health-care or whatever is utter nonsense! You don’t deserve anything except what you have worked for, earned or paid for.
- “I don’t have to change my lifestyle.”
The idea that you can change your appearance, your health, your life or anything else without changing what you’re doing is ludicrous. Sure, there are products and procedures that can bring immediate results but for lasting changes, you have to change the behaviors that brought about the problems. It’s called cause and effect.
