W.I.N. Wednesday: It’s Just Easier
It is easier to make excuses than it is to stand up, man up / woman up and own up when you screw up.
It is easier point the finger of blame than it is to look in the mirror and ask, “What piece of this do I own?”
It is easier to take the credit and give away the blame than it is to take the blame and give away the credit.
It is easier to be a problem identifier than it is to be a problem solver.
It is easier to find fault in others than it is to look for the good in them.
It is easier to complain about what is wrong than it is to take action to make things better.
It is easier to hate than it is to see others as people who have hopes, dreams, fears and aspirations.
It is easier to step back into comfort than it is to step forward into growth.
It is easier to remain silent than it is to stand up and speak up when others are professing messages of hate or providing false or inaccurate information.
It is easier to ignore inappropriate behavior in friends, coworkers and those you lead than it is to have a courageous conversation and address the behavior.
It is just easier to blame, complain, deflect, hate, do nothing, stay silent and stay stuck than it is to take responsibility, embrace accountability and take action to make things better.
What’s Important Now? You have a choice. You can choose easy or you can choose to do what is right. Doing what’s right is not always what is easy, expedient or popular but it is always what is right.
