John Hobbes once said “Men heap together the mistakes of their lives, and create a monster they call destiny.”
We all know people like that. So consummed with their mistakes and the past that they allow it to shape their future.
Unknowingly I stumbled upon a situation I view as a self fulling prophecy. Things had happened in the past, mistakes, made and no one was willing to change the situation.
Without going into details I can say I just ignored it and did the right thing regardless of what happened in the past. Which was simple because I was not involved then. But hard because everyone was willing to continue the status quo.
The result? Everyone was willing to make a small change because their excuses for not doing so appeared weak.
Doing the right thing is not easy and may not always yield results. But it has to be done.
