Why Is It Always Someone Else's Problem To Deal With?

All week long and even parts of last week all we have been hearing about problems...

All we hear everywhere we turn is:

  • It's this person's fault...
  • It's this business's fault...
  • It's this group's fault...
  • It's this organization's fault...
  • It's their fault that they make money...
  • It's their fault that they don't make money...
  • It's their fault that they don't support this ideology...
  • It's their fault they are so closed-minded...
  • It's their fault they didn't put a black square on their Instagram account...
  • It's all about racism...
  • It's all about equality...

And the list just keeps going on and on.

When does it end?

It won't as long as we always keep blaming other people for the problems.

Why do we always blame others you might be asking yourself...

Because it's easy, and we know with the climate of the world we live in today "easy" is always better and the right thing to do.

No one wants to work or put in the hard work to change things when we can just all sit around and complain and whine about things and how they should be.

"Should be" is part of the problem.

Your "should be" and someone else's "should be" are rarely if ever the same.

"Should be" is the cancer that eats away at our minds and our souls.

Maybe your thinking to yourself well okay, I'm willing to put in the work but where do I get started?

  • My church?
  • My Local Government?
  • My Local NAACP Chapter?
  • State Government?
  • State Courts?
  • State Supreme Court?
  • Federal Government?
  • Supreme Court?

I'm sure you can think of a lot of places where you could start to make a change, or better yet "think" you can make a change.

But I want to offer you may be a little different thought on where you can make a change.

Why don't you start with yourself?

Because let's be honest with each other here, that's were the real problem starts, isn't it?

"If you want to change the world you need to start by changing yourself first." - CS

Quit blaming others, or groups, or organizations, or governments.

Are they really the problem?

Or is the problem that you don't want to look at yourself in the mirror and realize that the problem might just start with you.

You want to do the hard work to make a change in the world?

Then start with the person staring back at you in the mirror.

That's where the hard work starts and that is where the hard work will pay off the most. 

Look deep inside yourself and see what it is you need to fix.

What is it that you can't stand about others, or that group, or that organization, or that government?

Maybe the reason you can't stand those things about them is that deep down you see those things in yourself and you don't like it.

I know it's a hard thing to do and believe me it takes a lot of time and hard work but it will be worth it in the end my friends.

So there is the challenge...

If you want to make a change then start with yourself.

Are you really ready to start the hard work of working on yourself?

Or are you going to finish reading this post and just go back to whining and complaining with all of the other people who aren't willing to do the hard work?

The choice is yours as always my friends.

Leave me a comment below and let me know if you're willing to do the "hard work", or if you would just prefer to take the "easier route" like all the other whiners and complainers in the world today.
