There is currently a lawsuit against the website IMDB.com. The suit states that IMDB cost actress Junie Hoang work by revealing her age. The actress claims that having people know her true age will hamper her ability to work. She is the actress that can’t get work because of her age and she’s right, but not because of her age.
If you believe you can’t get something, you won’t. There are always obstacles to achievement. You can blame the obstacle or you can overcome it. You can be a success or you can make excuses. You can’t di both.
There is a japanese business saying that translates as “Fix the problem, not the blame.” This is true. When something goes wrong, it is more important to fix what went wrong and ensure it doesn’t happen again, than it is to blame someone or something.
Forger the blame. If you look for something to blame, you’ll always find it. Ms. Hoang can now say she doesn’t get jobs because she sued IMDB. If you look at her history on IMDB it seems that the reason she may have trouble finding work is that the overwhelming majority of her work have been in awful productions. Focus on providing quality work. If you provide quality, there won’t be anything to blame.
If you accept responsibility for your actions and do quality work, people will want to work with you.
