Learned Helplessness

A good friend told me a story about the fish who starves among a tank full of food and I had to search out the video to share it with you.

Too often we believe that we can’t change our organizations, our communities, or our world because we’ve tried and tried and tried and tried and tried and failed over and over and over again.  (Did I labor that point too much? Maybe so.)  Yet, when circumstances change, what the fish story teaches us, is that we might be too blinded by our past experience to see the new future possibilities.

We can break out of that delusion, but only after we recognize its existence.

What’s changed in your life that makes winning more possible today?

You are not helpless.

You are powerful.

You can drive your change.

Why not try?
