Something needs to be done about this!

I’m sure you’ve heard and said that many times.

Here’s a secret: No.. actually, it doesn’t.

By saying others need to do something to address a fear or concern of mine, I am, interestingly enough, giving up control.

I’ve gained tremendous insight about myself by examining my mindset when I make this statement. By asking: “What am I afraid of?” I learn just a bit more about my fears, and in doing so, I gain a valuable tool in overcoming them.

We don’t evolve by forcing others to accommodate us. We grow by facing our fears and taking responsibility for the enormously powerful free will we possess.
