Over and Over Again...
Did you have to say I am sorry...again?
Were you late again because you didn't get your clothes out for work or school?
Did you have to run to the gas station at the last minute because you didn't get gas last night?
I can think of several scenarios where what I should have done, what I needed to do was an after thought.
But yet, for some reason I..you...we keep doing the very thing that we know didn't work our for us previously.
Benjamin Franklin said "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result."
So...where do you stand?
They also say the best form of apology is changed behavior, but too often we see repeated actions or inaction. From others and ourselves.
And yes...inaction is still.....an action.
In life, your choices will either earn you beneficial results or get you detrimental consequences. How successful you will be is determined by how quickly you learn from your gathered knowledge, and completely you apply what you learned to your life.
If you always do what you did, then you will get what you always got.
You have the power to change those outcomes. There are no failures in life just lessons, but only if you are willing to apply that lesson going forward.
None of us can see the future, and we can't control the world around us, but we can do our level best to ensure we are above reproach in working to be the best version of ourselves as often as we can and in as many circumstances and situations as we can.
I don't know about you, but it seems pretty backwards to continue to do things that we know are going to have a bad result.
"What? Oh I shouldn't have six beers before I go to work?"
So let's change. Lets do things differently. Even if you are scared, maybe it's time to switch up the game. I know....change is hard, but I promise....once you do and for the right reasons....amazing things can happen.
Then we can get out of that cycle. Then we can get out of that circle.
Then we can stop saying I am sorry...To ourselves and everyone around us.
