Sometimes we cannot but think aloud, in order to share a perspective because it might help someone.
I strongly align to the impact of consistently touching even one life (one relationship or one career/business) at a time – the ripple effect can be significant eventually.
It’s always an easier option for us all to point fingers at other people, things and circumstances, whenever we search for reason(s) why our lot is not turning out exactly the way we expect, in any area of life we may wish to consider.
This is the nature of humans, we tend to shy away from all manners of pains and discomfort, and it feels more convenient to shift the blame far away from self.
This explains why the frequency of hearing phrases like ‘I am sorry’, ‘Please forgive me’ or ‘I will make it up’, is more like digging diamonds with bare fingers.
In the real sense, unlike what we think, it’s a display of courage, maturity and love to take responsibility for our actions.
Give Ceaser what’s Ceaser’s!
This applies to all and sundry, and not to be employed only when it suits us.
To give to Ceaser does not in any way imply sticking our hands in all sorts of dirt, just to coast by and justify ourselves.
What’s really Ceaser’s?
It resonates more with me in terms of taking personal responsibility of any action we decide to take, so we can live as the best version of ourselves.
In all situations, firstly it’s important that we figure out what our own duties and responsibilities are, and concentrate on working on our own end, in a way that it’s very apparent…
… loose and problematic ends usually appear when our own end of the pole is not catered for, and we start pushing for other parties to fulfill their own obligations.
Would it not be more honourable to feel no sense of guilt, knowing we have put in excellent efforts towards the expected result?
When we invest time in doing what should be done, then amazing outcomes start manifesting. Even when it’s not immediate expect it sooner or later.
Things work better when we are committed, and have given all we possibly should in any situation, before we can start making demands on other people.
This is applicable even in governance, it pays us all to do our own little bit where we are.
The question is – HAVE YOU/I REALLY GIVEN YOUR/MY BEST? Let’s apply this question to any situation in our life that needs a solution.
We really should not be digging while entrapped in a ditch…
… our actions will determine the outcome.
AM I PART OF THE PROBLEM OR SOLUTION?
Let’s give frank answers to these questions, and start working at our own end of the divide This works whether the scenario playing out is in our dealings at home, work, school, business and so on.
The basic truth is that we can only control and change ourselves, with others we can at best inspire and influence them (if we desire positive outcomes) …
… we deal with people at different spheres of our life, and they are at different levels of awareness and growth.
“Our level of self awareness affects the way we view and understand what our various roles and responsibilities are in life”
Meanwhile as we work to inspire others to improve, we should continue to engage in our own responsibilities.
To live a life full of meaning, we need to start adding simple but empowering habit structures in our daily life, to enable us narrow down on giving value not only to ourselves but to others.
Your response is always appreciated.
Live your best life!
