You Have Contributed to the Problem

danger personal responsibility area

Whatever challenges you are facing, odds are you had a hand in creating them. None of us are perfect; we all make mistakes, take wrong turns. Until we acknowledge our participation, however ancillary or unintentional we will be hampered in finding a resolution, particularly the easiest, most elegant solution. Awareness is key to finding a better way. Once Marianne Williamson (‘A Return to Love’) was asked by an audience member why she seemed to always be attracting losers into her life. “It’s not that you attract them especially, we all meet them; it’s that you give them your phone number.”

Closing Quotes:

“Every time you think the problem is ‘out there,’ that very thought is part of the problem.” – Stephen Covey, 1932-2012

“The degree to which you will awaken is in direct proportion to the amount of truth you are willing to accept about yourself.” – Robert Anthony, 1916-2006, organizational theorist, professor of management control, HBS

As always, I share what I most want and need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
