I was going to repost an oldie but a goodie this morning, but a few comments prompted an idea in my gut and I could not help but write. If I read this statement, “easier said than done,” once this past week I read it a dozen times. The statements were in response to my post Help Others To Help Yourself. But what prompted my mind was the thought process behind the statement.
When I first read the “easier said than done” comments I was perplexed, but now I have a little more clarity. Here’s the blunt truth: life is not easy. Life can be hard, but it is not impossible. There are going to be times in life that will require you to make big changes in order to change a certain outcome. Often we live our lives wishing for change, but continuing to live in the same manner. The frustration comes when the undesired result does not end, change or get better. Change requires change. Never forget that.
You will never experience the transformation you require if you are a wisher! Change the actions or lack of actions that produce the undesirable result; then and only then will you begin to see things change. Will it be easy? Maybe, maybe not. Your success will depend on your desire. If you are wishing , then you will not change. But, if you develop a burning desire in your innermost self, then you will find a way.
Definition of insanity: Committing the same action over and over, while expecting a different result. Break the cycle today by committing to new life activities, habits and rituals! Make a list of your daily activities, thoughts, habits and rituals and begin to identify specifically what needs to be rectified in your life to get the desired outcome you want.
I hope this sheds light,
