There is a disturbing trend among both people and politicians to find somebody to blame for each problem. This phenomenon frequently provides a convenient alibi for failure. Many people blame an opaque persona such as ‘big business’ or ‘the man’ for their problems. These ghosts create an excuse to avoid doing what is necessary for success. However, the realization of our goals, dreams, and aspirations will require many of us to ‘step up’ and make our goals happen.
