What an awful expression that is.
We all hear it regularly and it got me thinking how the world might have looked today if Winston Churchill had simply said, as Hitler tried to take over Europe "There is nothing we can do - that's just how it is"
How about if Bill Gates had accepted "That’s just how it is" when he tried to say windows would make personal computers user friendly.
Do you suppose Richard Branson ever replies “You are right of course – I will just accept that’s just how it is” when opponents tell him his ideas won’t work
I don’t know about you but I do not want to have an epitaph that reads something like this ….
Here lies Trevor Gay who always said ... “I couldn’t change things because that's just how it is"
We have choices – we can try and influence things and make changes or we can bury our heads in the sand and have a quiet life by accepting low standards or bad service by shrugging our shoulders and simply saying “Well - that’s just how it is”
I know which choice I prefer.
