“Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make different choices.”
You know the old saying about the definition of insanity? It goes like this: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
I think that comes from 12-step programs. It’s not exactly the clinical definition, but it makes a lot of sense when applied to day-to-day living in the real world. How are things going for you right now? Love life…work life…friendships…mental state…physical state…spiritual landscape…? All your present experiences are a result of the choices you’ve made—what you’ve said yes to, what you’ve said no to—leading up to this moment. Change one thing, and you wouldn’t even be reading this right now.
Consider this: If something’s troubling you, how might you handle it differently this time? How might you break an unhealthy cycle? How might you increase your chances for success?.
