How often do we let our own skepticism win the day? How familiar is this old mantra:
I can’t, I can’t, I can’t…
He won’t, she won’t, they won’t…
We have a choice.
Instead of blaming, pleading, challenging, provoking, criticizing and adding sarcasm to our recipe of words, we can change the way we speak. And also the way we think just by substituting hope for negativity and sincerity for skepticism.
We must do the work on our very own selves. We have to start letting go of past bitterness and fears of the future and move forward. It has to begin inside ourselves. We have to change tack and try a different approach.
Forget the other guys right now and move ahead. You pave the way and they’ll catch up. Transformation is an inside job.
