Why do we seek a breakthrough with "more of the same"?
I´m reading an amazing book named You2 and want to share a part from it.
"There´s a small fly burning out the last of its short life´s energies in a futile attempt to fly through the glass of the windowpane. The whining wings tell the poignant story of the fly´s strategy ––– try harder.
But it´s not working.
This fly is doomed. It will die there on the windowsill.
Across the room, ten steps away, the door is open..
Ten seconds of flying time and this small creature could reach the outside world it seeks.
Why doesn´t the fly try another approach, something dramatically different?
What logic is there in continuing, until death, to seek a breakthrough with "more of the same"
Author: Price Pritchett
I´ve lived my life for many years like that fly..
I got very emotional when I read this story and reflected over my own choices in life...
I´ve continued doing more of the same, without reflecting about the outcome.
When I didn´t receive the result I wanted, running my toyshops, I tried harder until I reached an inevitable burnout.
I did the same when I worked in Networkmarketing.
I even did it in my private life which affected my relation to my children...
I just didn´t understand what I was doing wrong...
Also in my marriage
I kept tirelessly "driving on the highway" without a reflection on what we were doing to each other...
We both wanted it to work.
But none of us was willing to change
There were a lot of control in both directions which didn´t do us any good.
Once I stepped out of our relation I could see it all from another perspective.
Shift your mindset
I´ve been living as a victim of circumstances.
Without awareness of my choices in life.
Shift your mindset from
"life is happening to me"
"I create my life"
I´m so grateful to myself for doing this program by Bob Proctor. "Thinking into results"
It really teaches me how I´ve been programmed since I was a little one. All my self-doubt and my bad habits of reacting.
"If you react you loose
If you respond you win"
I used to let the outside world control me.
Today I choose to live my life inside out.
Unlike the fly, I don´t work harder, I stay persistent and I trust my own journey.
I have the courage to say NO to things that no longer serve me.
Whatever we do in life there will be people judging us, questioning us and slander us.
Don´t try to please them.
Because it has nothing to do with you.
They´re only projecting their own crap on you.
Get yourself another cup of coffe and start to believe in You.
I´m getting better and better everyday
and I will allow myself to love my journey.
Take care out there!
