You read a great book, or go to a wonderful movie recommended by a friend, or are reading this blog right now, or subscribe to email lists of people you admire, or go for great retreats, or organise a wonderful motivational session in your office….someday just stop and check, why are you doing it in the first place.

You are doing it because you understand, that pointing out what’s wrong with other people is easy; being reflective about yourself and doing the tedious task of self-development: that is the real courage.

So this weekend, sit and give yourself a pat on a back: for choosing responsibility over blame. It requires a real hero to do that.
