A lot of people think that if you dare to try something new or take a risk in order to improve your life, that you are actually making your life more difficult.
We tell ourselves it's easier to stick with the status quo because it is “what we know.” It’s familiar, known and predictable.
But what if “what you know” isn't working for you anymore?
We've all heard the saying "insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” What really makes our lives difficult is doing the same things, even when we don’t like what they create!
You already know what is going to happen if you continue with the same habits, patterns, behaviors and thoughts that are no longer serving you. The hard part is continuing to live in a way you’ve outgrown.
The simple part is deciding to make a change. Even though trying something risky or new may cause your pulse to quicken and your palms to sweat, the rewards will far outweigh simply "playing it safe." You’ve just got to dare to do it.
What do you gain by something differently today?
