Entitlement Liability

The ability to forgive requires a lack of entitlement. Entitled teammates are not team-minded because they feel that something is owed them. This is a difficult situation on a team because entitlement causes a teammate to become a liability. Decisions begin to be made to defend or acquire what they feel entitled to rather than what is best for the team. The biggest liability is that entitlement is the opposite of a forgiving heart. The entitled teammate is one tense moment away from the path of bitterness. Bitter inhibits getting better. We are at our best when we refuse to become entitled.
