Write Your Own Map

Time and time again, we have come across people who believe that they cannot change the course of their lives. Like a script handed down at birth, these friends and colleagues view their lives as something to endure or get through. They cannot imagine that they have the power to effect change in their life. How sad is that?

Ask someone what he or she would like to see different in their marriage. The answer is usually negative, for instance, “I don't want to keep fighting over the same things all the time” or “I want my wife to stop driving me nuts.” The problem is that these statements are really complaints and don't describe where you want to go or what you need to change. The trouble with focusing on complaints is that you're not thinking about what can be done about them.
