Congratulations! You are not a tree!
Well obviously, but I’m sure you can see where I’m going with this…
You don’t like where you are in your career? Okay, so change it.
You don’t like your boyfriend? Okay, get a new one.
You don’t like the relationship you have with your staff? Fix it.
You don’t like the direction your company is heading in? Steer it in a new one.
Too often we fail to remember that we can change things.
Instead, we complain and we vent. We annoy people to death with our problems.
It seems that we’re great at pointing out all of the things that we’d like to change, yet we struggle with the understanding that we can do more than just complain.
So why don’t we change things?
Because we’re scared? Because we’re comfortable?
These are not good enough reasons.
Maybe it’s because we get to a point where we feel that we’re stuck?
Well guess what…
We’re not stuck. We can fix things and we can make things better. Nothing is permanent.
We’re not trees, and this is a good thing.
