Taking the familiar way out of any reoccurring problem guarantees you will arrive, once more, in the same place from which you started.
(Guy Finley quote)
Roadturn Principle: If you do the same thing, you’ll get the same results.
Are there problems in your life that occur over and over again?
Do you start to feel like maybe you’re going to overcome the situation this time, only to fall and roll right back down the hill like Sisyphus and his boulder?
You’re not alone.
Each of us fights battles of our own. We all have struggles, and we all fall down.
Why can’t you solve the problem?
Guy Finley says we’re doomed to end up back at the same old spot as long as we keep taking the “familiar way out.”
Maybe it’s not a lack of effort that keeps bringing us down. Maybe the problem is that we keep taking the wrong path.
It may LOOK right… but it doesn’t work. It’s a dead end.
No matter how fast or hard you’re running… if you’re going the wrong way, you’re going to lose the race.
New outcomes seldom arise from old solutions.
What if there’s a different way?
Most of us already KNOW what we need to do.
We keep hoping there’s a different path — a magic pill, a super food, a guru, a new technique, a breakthrough idea — to keep us from the reality staring at us daily in the mirror.
For most of us, knowing isn’t the problem.
DOING is the problem.
We don’t do what we know.
We read about it, we talk about it, we participate in discussion groups about it, we take classes on it… but we don’t DO it.
Is that you?
