If you have an „internal locus of control‟, then that means that you recognize just how responsible you are for the quality of your life and your accomplishments. Many people have a tendency to blame others, to blame circumstances, or to make excuses when things don‟t go their way. Why aren‟t you happy? It‟s because you had a hard childhood! Why aren‟t you rich? It‟s because you weren‟t born with a silver spoon in your mouth, or because you lost your job due to lay-offs.
