Use your Life.
The world is filled with "couch critics." It has become a favorite past time for many to sit around and point out the foibles and flaws of our world leaders, politicians, bosses and even families. Our index fingers are nearly conditioned to point in the direction of "fault" when we see inefficiency, incompetence or wrong doing. It is not a question of validity on the part of the claim. Many of the accusations and arguments are sound. There may indeed be evidence to suggest that we are "right," but how does that contribute to creating something more effective? Criticism is easy; action is often difficult. Would you rather be right or effective? They are not always the same.
If you feel that you're living in a world "gone mad," then consider your own life. How does your life contribute to a better world? Before you look outward, look inward (and in the mirror). If you don't like the life that you're living, you have three choices:
1. You can either complain about it to anyone who will listen,
2. You can quietly suffer and work your way to martyrdom or,
3. You can do something about it.
As you well know, the most effective choice is not a simple one. If you are not going to live your life as a critic or a victim, you are going to have to take the responsibility for effective solutions. This is often easier said than done.
Today, identify one thing in the world that you believe is in need of improvement. How will you use your life (beginning today) to begin to create something more effective?
Success or sabotage? Success requires responsibility; sabotage is a habit of comfort for those who prefer to live as victims.
Is this going to be an incredible day? What can you do to create an incredible day TODAY?
