Pointing the Finger is for Children

Pointing the FingerSince the recent 2012 presidential election, it seems that more and more people are becoming experts at pointing the finger! Wouldn’t you agree with that statement?

Pointing the Finger is for Children

Sometimes I wonder if my time spent on social networks is of any benefit or if all the negativity I surround myself with on that platform is more damaging than helpful.

It’s been said that you will eventually become more like those you hang out with. If you count the hour or so per day that I spend with my thousands of Facebook contacts, a good portion of those influences probably aren’t doing me much good. The more I allow myself to be influenced by those who are constantly pointing the finger, blaming others for their problems and playing the victim, the more I might accept it.

I’m getting very efficient at unsubscribing from people who aren’t lifting me up.

Pointing the finger, or blaming someone else for your misfortunes is much easier than changing your situation.

Much easier.

Be honest with me, how many times have you heard others blaming Obama for their business failures? Is it really the current Presidents fault that your business isn’t thriving? Is it the Presidents fault that the economy is horrible?

Sure, the President can do things that effect the economy a bit, good or bad, but ultimately, it’s up to you to make something happen in your local area.

Stop pointing the finger, expecting someone else to fix the problem.

It starts with you!

I find it someone ironic that most of those who are pointing the finger of blame towards others are employees. Not all employees are this way, but it’s easy for a portion of them to get caught up in asking for handouts, expecting to be taken care of. All they have to do is show up, do their job and then go home. And when something goes wrong that effects their little bubble, it’s someone else’s fault. Almost always!

So here’s the solution. If you’re a current employee who is upset with the current state of the economy, instead of pointing the finger at the President, do something about it. Step outside the repetitive nature of your job and stop waiting for a handout. Start a business and change your own personal economy, and then give back to everyone else’s.

That’s how you change the economy. The turn of the battle will come from those on the front lines, not from the Presidents chair. Although his decisions effect us all, let’s to our best to keep him in check and design a future with our own hands.

Pointing the finger is for children. More people must become entrepreneurs. It’s the only true way to help the economy.
