Own The Problem – Be The Solution
One way to get centered in the locus of true power is to say, when a problem arises, “If there’s a problem, I’m the problem.” Now you can do something about it! Because if you’re the problem, you’re the solution. This is not about self-blame and guilt. It’s about always becoming the solution. – Steve Chandler
So many people are unwilling to see themselves as either partially, or fully, responsible – as part of the problem.
They resist this as doing so would cast them, as Chandler says above, into shame and guilt.
But that’s a misunderstanding.
Being part of the problem, or the problem, is incredibly empowering!
There’s no quicker path to a solution than one that starts with you.
