I will illustrate my message by sharing a story.
The story is about three negative women who lived in the bayou (a bayou is an inlet or outlet of a lake or river ) . Every day they complained, “We’ve got it bad living in this bayou. No opportunity here. Others are living in the city where they have unlimited opportunities. Us, we got nothing.” This is the complaint they lived their lives by, until one day a positive-thinking woman came along. After listening to the complaints, she said, “Nonsense! Opportunity? You want opportunity? You got opportunity. You live on the bayou. The bayou leads to the river. The river leads to the gulf. The gulf leads to the ocean. You can go anywhere from where you are?”
Moral of the story: Most people go through life complaining about how bad the economy is, how unhelpful the government is and how everything and everyone is against them. The blame game goes on and on but has never made anybody’s situation change for the better. It’s easy to hold someone responsible for your dilemma. But I suggest to you…look around you,the solution is not far.
What ever crisis you might be in right now, just remember that there is always a better way. Dare to try something different.
This is my story and I am sticking to it!
