Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
If what you are doing isn’t working, do something different. Choose a new path. Make different choices. Different results come from different actions. Just stop it. Really. Life is a continuum of actions and reactions. So act and react in a new way.
Ask yourself these questions:
What am I willing to do differently?
When am I willing to do it?
How will I stay committed to doing it?
Understand, you don’t have to do anything. Changing yourself is not a requirement. You have free will. But, if you are dissatisfied with the current condition of your life, then only you can alter it. Blaming your past, your parents, your partner, or your present circumstances only serves to keep you enslaved to the present situation.
Albert Einstein said that the definition of insanity is, “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Most of us aren’t insane. So let’s don’t act like it. If what you are doing isn’t working, do something different. Sure, it might take a while – but so did Rome.
