SWYT_Book_Resources1STOP WASTING YOUR TIME Blaming Others for Your Life!

It is easy to blame others, bad relationships, childhood experiences, bad influences and environments for your circumstances, but the truth is, you are responsible for everything in your life. This includes your choices and decisions, your reactions to people and situations, and your ability to overcome obstacles and move beyond limitations. When you blame someone or something else, you are not taking responsibility for yourself and you give away your power to change your circumstances.

In this book, Tamara Hartley shares some of her most difficult life experiences and how she used to blame everyone around her for her life; including her parents, classmates, teachers, spouse, coworkers, and Oprah Winfrey (YES, even Oprah)! She talks openly about real-life issues and sticky situations that many of us face. From being a teenage and single parent, to being teased and taunted in high school, experiencing breakups and bad relationships, enduring financial hardships, and being stuck in a dead-end career. Tamara then shares the greatest life lessons she learned through these difficult situations when she stopped blaming others, took full responsibility for herself, and took back control of her life.

Known for her candid and transparent style and “keeping it real,” Tamara reveals personal details about her journey and the choices and decisions she made. Each chapter shares a story, a lesson learned, and the choice Tamara made to move her life forward. At the end of each chapter is a special opportunity for you, the reader, to reflect on your journey and experiences. You too can take back your power and make new and better choices to make positive changes in your life to create the life you want and deserve!
