What do you stand for?
Many people complain about the drug industry. Others are actively against vaccination, loudly fight cancer, get worked up over this or that and are quick to fight some injustice.
You can’t win by being against!
By attempting to overcome something (smoking, alcohol, sugar, procrastination etc), declare war on something else (cancer, poverty, hunger, obesity, sedentary lifestyles, lids off toothpaste tubes or whatever else), you actually create what you don’t want! Your attempts will produce an equal and opposite reaction.
Instead, provide a more attractive solution. Stand for personal responsibility, advance the truth, encourage understanding, trumpet the advantages of natural, support a willingness to try, incentivise (you like that?) follow through, praise incremental improvements, reward behaviors you desire … rather than punish those you’d like to eliminate.
Leadership is about creating a more promising future, not condemning what is.
