Are you a follower? Do you like others to choose for you?
Sometimes, it’s ok to follow. Most of the time it’s when you want to learn something that you can only learn following someone who can show it to you.
In reality, most will keep following because it feels safe.
Being safe following is an illusion. Letting someone else choose for you will never be all that you want. I can bring some good things, but it will never be all you want. In the end, you’ll always find disappointment.
“Each of you, as an individual, must pick your own goals. Listen to others, but do not become a blind follower.”
– Thurgood Marshall
Someone determine to reach for their dreams will only follow to learn.
“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.”
– Og Mandino
Follower think that they don’t face the responsibility for their failure. They live in the illusion of someone else being responsible. It’s an illusion, we’re responsible of everything we take action on. Even if it’s after someone else request or order.
No one can take the responsibility for your action.
Blaming someone will not solve a problem.
“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame them, it will not change you.”
– Wayne Dyer
When you want to solve a problem, you need to understand what it means to you and what you should change about it.
No amount of blame will solve a problem.
Responsibility for what you did is all up to you.
The only way to change a situation is to take responsibility and find a solution.
Invest your energy into finding the solution instead of finding who to blame.
“Great leaders don’t rush to blame. They instinctively look for solutions.
– Nina Easton
Inspiration is the result of a positive mind working to find a solution.
A positive mind will not waste energy on whining.
A positive mind will focus on a solution and invest all energy toward it.
Inspiration is available to all. If you focus on a solution, you have way more chances to find one.
“You can have everything you want if you can put your heart and soul into everything you do.”
– Roy T. Bennett
We have limited energy. It’s different for each of us. What we do with it is our responsibility.
You can make a difference if you put your focus on the solution.
“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
– Jane Goodall
Whiner will be forgotten. Only doers can be remembered.
This is a good book about making a difference in the lives of those you love, live with, and lead. Get it here.
When you become aware of something, you are involved in the end result. Taking action or not.
“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”
– Aldous Huxley
Facts do not cease to exist because you don’t know about them. You just don’t have that much influence on them as the people who are aware.
Take responsibility in the reality you are aware of.
If you can do something, even the smallest things, do it.
If you do something, do it for you. Know that in the end, you are doing it for you.
