The sages tell us that we each create our own reality. This is challenging. For, to believe it, we would have to come to grips with things like blame and guilt, science and causation, innocence and victimhood, and the possibility of having a usually hidden though wiser part of ourselves.
But here’s the thing: even if the sages are wrong, operating as if we do create our own reality is a wonderfully productive way to live life.
Taking responsibility (not blame) for everything is quite powerful. Instead of spending time and energy reacting to and fighting what we don’t want to deal with, we get to choose how we will respond in every situation and with every person. And it’s a fantastic way to lead.
Lead on, good leader.
