Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
-Jillian Michaels

I understand you weren't a part of the group that were making a big fuss. But what about not having made it known that you would make the change without complaint? Is that something to apologize for? No. But it is a way to tell them that you weren't a part of the problem in the first place but you don't want to actually correct them. It might seem a little passive agressive, but it will play up to management's need to feel powerful (apologizing for anything does that) and will say that your only part in it was that you didn't say that you would be okay with the procedure change.

Sometimes saying nothing at all is a good thing. Sometimes saying nothing gets you lumped in with the troublemakers and you'll stay a part of them unless you separate yourself. It's like if an innocent person walks past a crime and the police show up and think he's a part of it. If he says nothing he gets taken to jail, and if he says "I was not a part of it, I was just walking by" they will assume he's lying to get out of it. But if the instant he's accuesd he drops to the floor and is completely submissive then he has the best chance of it getting sorted out and he can be on his way. It sucks and it's not right, you should be assumed innocent until proven guilty, but that doesn't really work when it comes to work situations.

You weren't part of the problem, but just by being a part of the workteam you were lumped in with them. It happens and it sucks. I've been there. TBH my boss was a wimp with no power and her boss was totally pulling her strings. But I spoke to my boss and made her feel like she was in control by saying I was not a part of the problem because I didn't tell everyone else I spoke to that the change was stupid. I didn't think it was a great change but I wanted to give it some time to see if it worked before making a big deal about it. I told her I probably should have mentioned to her that I was going to try the change so she knew I wasn't a part of the problem. My boss ate it up, she felt powerful, and she knew I wasn't the problem so for awhile after that I was given the benefit of the doubt.

This is why I gave the advice I did. Bosses want to feel powerful especially when they're not. They want to hear "I apologize" to feel respected, and half the time they don't really hear what you're apologizing for. Office politics is really horrible, but sometimes you have to play the game.
