You wouldn’t have to worry about making excuses for failing to achieve what you said was your goal. You wouldn’t have to blame others for failures you could have avoided. You wouldn’t have to count on others shirking their responsibility in order to give you what you think you are entitled too even though your failure to accept personal responsibility got you into this situation in the first place.
Performance talks. When you engage others in talk about performance, is your purpose to learn how to improve and hold yourself to higher standards of excellence? Or is your purpose to cover your ass and figure out how to just do enough to get by?
If you worried more about performing, your talk would rarely center on you and your own performance. When your performance speaks for itself, others will talk about your performance on your behalf.
When you really perform, you never really have to worry.
