You have a choice - A or B
It's so often the other person who is to blame - they're rude, disrespectful, impatient, don't understand, arrogant, at fault, wrong, resistant, lying, dishonest, lazy, selfish, hiding something, and so on (A) However .... there's always another perspective .... If the response you're getting isn't the one you'd expect or desire you might ask yourself "how have our or my own personal behaviours, words and actions contributed to the current situation?" (B) In A we're suggesting there's nothing we can do to change the outcome, in B we're taking personal responsibility for what we can do to facilitate a different outcome. I'm not suggesting B is easy. Yet B is the route I often ask others to take when coaching and facilitating them - because that's that's how personal growth is nurtured, how comfort zones are expanded, and where solutions are found. Every day you have a choice to go with A or B - what will you choose?
