Got Change?

January 5, 2012

As we begin a new year, we think about the changes we wish to have in our lives. The question we must sincerely ask ourselves is “am I willing to make any changes?” While we may want change, we are creatures of habit. A habit can be like the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. It may keep us busy, but let’s not mistake activity for achievement.

There is a story of a major city in the U.S. that acquired a very special tiger. They started to build a very large and well-appointed habitat for the tiger. The tiger arrived before the habitat was ready, so they put it in a very large cage. Every day for nearly three months the tiger would pace the thirty-five foot length then turn around and walk back over and over. Finally the day arrived when the habitat was ready and the tiger was placed in it. The tiger proceeded to walk thirty-five feet in one direction, turn around and walk the same distance back, over and over.

If we want change, we must make changes. If we want growth, we must grow. If we want improvement, we must improve.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch
