They say, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.

But what happens when you can’t even lead the horse to the water?

You can try to entice it, with incentives and promises of rewards.

You can push it and force it, with sticks and punishments and consequences.

Or, you can pick it up and carry it and do the work for it, but at what cost to you?

Sometimes, you might have to show the horse the water and the path, and let it choose to die of thirst.

It’s their choice.
