How easy is it to say: this food is bland, that movie has awful acting, this book has no plot? We, as a society, love being ‘against’ things. It is, after all, how revolutions are started, unfairness is brought to attention, and conversations start.
But if it’s change you’re going for, lasting change, the kind that transforms opinions, brings people together, and produces important results…be for things.
What are you against? Okay, that was easy. Now, what are you for?
It’s easy to criticize, isn’t it? It’s much harder to have an opinion, formulate an argument (if you will), and back something with conviction.
So be for things, not just against stuff.
