Your Daily Challenge:
Identify your previous patterns … that equal insanity!
doing the same thing over and over again
and expecting different results.
We all do it — we go round and round the same tree, habitually repeating an outdated pattern of behavior, because it’s comfortable, easy and what we know. We know it’s not in alignment with our SMARTER GOALS and yet, we keep repeating ourselves and hoping for a different result. I am certainly guilty of this, it’s what we do when we are in the contemplation stage of change. We think we want to change, we watch ourselves reach for the same comfortable behavior that we have that keeps us in that broken record loop and we don’t jump the fence into the new behavior, because it involves change. We haven’t fully committed to the new behavior.
Sometimes change feels scary, more so to some than others but what is valuable to remember here is ~ change will happen around us no matter what. Time goes by, we are changing everyday for the good or the not so good whether we like it or not. Change is inevitable, the seasons change, the kids grown, we get older (and better) and life keeps ticking along. It is a choice for us to change, learn and grow as the world turns or we sit, stagnate and get stuffy … it is a choice.
