It's all about change.

Words like "improve," "grow," and "evolve" are really just positive expressions for "change."

As we all know, the only thing consistent in life is change. But the defining element for the nature and quality of that change is awareness.

Without awareness, change has no direction and no higher purpose.

Awareness

Being aware of what is going on outside of you is far easier than being aware of what is going on inside of you.

What others say and do, how they say and do it, traffic, weather, politics, love, hatred, kindness, and war - who has time to self-examine when there is so much to focus on "out there"?

And by focusing "out there," you are opening yourself up to being judgmental and placing blame.

The problem with blame

If you focus on the outside and blaming others, your power evaporates. You can’t change anything because you have no stake in the game.

You become and remain a victim.

Having no responsibility means you also have no power. And having no power means you can’t affect change when and where you want.

As a victim in your own life and relationships, you retreat into defensiveness to protect yourself from a world that you assume is against you.
