We’d rather watch an action movie or any movie for that matter than actually take action ourselves. Why is that? Is it because it’s safer? If so we should get real with ourselves. Safer? How?
Safer to sit on the couch or lay in bed watching, not getting exercise, not exercising our minds? Snacking, maybe even gorging on snacks. How safe is that?
Are we worried about having to be responsible for the action we take? What if we don’t succeed? What if we succeed? Then people will expect more from us.
What responsibility are you carrying by not taking action? The cover here that masks this responsibility is virtually everyone else is doing it so it seems normal and safe.
What if the greatest risk was being a spectator and watching others take action?
