We are all provided with the same opportunities with regard to general choices we make; and often we practice active or passive avoidance of those choices. That is, we either recognize or understand the “right” thing to do and passively avoid it by doing nothing, or upon recognition, we actively choose to do something completely opposite and often the “wrong” thing. This is a simple quirk in our human nature, which can be modulated, modified, and overcome with the simple introduction of ‘will’, humorously referred to as “want to.”
If we examine a situation or opportunity to make a choice and go passive, it could be because our “want to” (will) is too weak to face the rigors of doing what is right. This could be anything from maintaining the legal speed limit while driving, to sharing a hard truth with a friend, trusted colleague or coworker regarding some personal issue.
