Ever used the following excuses to justify your behaviour?
- They did it first
- I had no choice
- They made me do it
- I’m the real victim
- what could I do
- its not my fault
Yes ; most of us have, especially when feeling guilty about something we have or have not done.
If you have used the above justifications it is time to stop and ask yourself, am I a perpetual victim and a spectator in my own life.
We all have power and we all have choices. Sometimes the choices are less than ideal but we have choices, even if it is only a choice over the attitude we take or the choice to own the decisions we make . By understanding our power we can take ownership of our actions and maximise our choices and our impact.
