Oftentimes, all we need to do is shift our perspective of ourselves, of others or a situation, to see the way forward.
~ Judit e. Szabo
By addressing the underlying core issue of a problem (the cause), rather than the outer appearances (the effect), we move into an indispensable and highly effective thinking process to overcoming problems, especially the recurring ones. By acknowledging the fundamental issue, we are able to come up with fresh and innovative ideas or as cliche states, we begin to ‘think outside of the box’.
~ Judit Szabo

You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president.
You realize that you control your own destiny.

When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you
don’t blame the lettuce.
You look for reasons it is not
It may need fertilizer, or more water, or
You never blame the lettuce.

grow well, like the lettuce.

That is my experience.
No blame, no
reasoning, no argument, just understanding.
understand, and you show that you understand, you can
love, and the situation will change”
