You have to put your mind to it.

Do you know those people who will sit in a room and bring up problem after problem after problem, then they look at you and ask what are you going to do about it? I would go out on a limb and say that 95% of the time they are the problem.  Lots of times there are things that happen that are not in our control to change but most of the time we are the answer to making a difference, and making a change. Recently my friend and long time co- worker Allen Benson made a huge change in his life. Allen and I go all the way back to  high school where we played football together, we worked side by side for many years at Windermere as well. One thing about Allen was when he put his mind to something you had better jump on for the ride because he was going to go about 110 miles an hour. Take a look at this photo that he posted up on his facebook just today.

Allen has never been one to complain or point fingers but when it came time to do something different or better he did it. Today Allen is a tri-athelete and not only is he one, but his family is right there with him all the way competing right along side him.

My point to this post is first and foremost to say way to go Allen! Second to say that remember that you are in control. Too many times we want to look around and find someone to blame for where we are. The reality of it is we are the only ones that can take us where we choose to go. The next time you want to complain take a min and ask yourself have you done all that you can to make it better?
