Sample text

He is taking me back to a time almost forty years ago when he knows for sure that his stepping up, along with others, helped change the course of history. His story reads like a modern David and Goliath tale and helps illustrate an important principle: if you want to step up and change things, first you have to believe you can. Again and again as I interviewed people for this book, I was struck by the fact that almost everyone who stepped up and changed things had an unrelenting belief in the possibility of change, even when the odds seemed against it.

Even those of us who tend to be initiators can act like victims sometimes, and those of us who tend to feel like victims have moments when we see the potential to change things. There are other times when we aren’t so much like victims as we simply accept the status quo with a shrug. Victim thinking and scores on locus of control are not identical, but what concerns me is that victim thinking is becoming more pervasive. After analyzing the results of studies using Rotter’s Scale on Locus of Control with young people from 1960 to 2002, Jean Twenge, a prolific researcher at San Diego State University, found a disturbing trend.

In fact, the shift was so great that the average young person in 2002 was more external than were 80 percent of young people in the 1960s. ” This victim thinking can take on comical proportions. Remember a few years ago when someone sued McDonald’s— and won the case—because she spilled her hot coffee, causing a burn? Hence, coffee cups are now emblazoned with the words, WARNING HOT! Give me a break. Of course coffee is it ’ s n o t my j o b , it ’ s n o t my fa u lt 21 hot, and we can’t blame other people every time something goes wrong.
