Stop blaming your partner, parents, economy, your upbringing or the dog for your misfortune. Blaming makes you a victim and prevent you from changing your situation. When you stop blaming and accept responsibility, you shift from victim to victor. Now you can look at the situation and decide what to do about it.
Complaining is another form of blaming and playing the victim as if you have no choice. It also shows that you focus on things going wrong, things happening to you. In everything not going according to plan, there is a gift, there is a bigger picture. Rather ask yourself, “What can I learn from this?” Just because something hasn’t been done before, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. Just because we’ve always done things this way doesn’t mean we should continue to.
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” – George Bernard Shaw. Be unreasonable.
Changing the status quo depends on it. Before you open your mouth with an intention of advising, telling, or coming from a place of “knowing something,” remember that you could be wrong. Admitting that you could be wrong is an effective way to reduce tension among people. Once you put your own neck on the line, it doesn’t matter who’s right. Suddenly more people are open to the possibility of the actual truth.
