White Hat Awareness Quote: Day 20
“One of the most powerful tool we possess is the ability to acknowledge the possibility that things could be different”
30 days of life lesson quotes. As I continue to share my message I am finding that fear and change seem to be a frequent stumbling block in the grown up world. Things that are different or outcomes that are unknown bring resistance instead of excitement and joy. (Remember my story of the scary jellybean?)
Adults prefer predictability and certainty even if we are unhappy or uncomfortable with our current situation. We resist moving out of our comfort zone and allow fear and negativity to keep us in places we really don’t want to be. Safety and comfort are powerful forces and to move beyond what we know can feel downright terrifying. I believe that once you truly begin to acknowledge the possibilities that things could be different, your life will start to change for the better.
When your total focus is on the worry and stress about the situation you are in at the moment, there is absolutely no room for anything else in your brain. We must allow the possibility of something better to enter our thoughts. Imagination is the mind muscle that will get us out of our rut or an uncomfortable situation. As adults we have forgotten about the excitement and joy that comes from change because we are too busy clinging to the comfort of now.
