If someone in your sphere of influence is struggling and you don’t do anything to help them and they fail… guess what. You own part of that failure. It’s on you to help.
If you walk past a problem, even one time, you may have just given your unspoken approval for that problem to be accepted as the new norm. It’s on you to fix it.
If you waste time complaining about problems and issues that you aren’t taking the time to engage with and solve, don’t be surprised when those problems never get resolved. Taking action is on you.
Everyone one of us has a degree of influence on our friends, families and co-workers… and it’s on us to use that influence to make things better.
