Lives have been transformed by doing things we wouldn’t normally do.. I would like to challenge you this week to do five things you wouldn’t normally do. They can be as simple as changing up where you go for lunch. You could also go to the other end of the spectrum and go skydiving. Maybe this weekend you can grab the family and go to the go-kart track, or the tennis courts.
Why have so many lives been changed by this simple exercise? Our minds tend to consistently guide us down the same path. Have you heard of being stuck in a rut? The rut is the normal mode of operation for your unconscious mind. Have you repeatedly tried to start something new, and a few weeks later you are still doing the things you have always done?
We often don’t pick up on it, but our brains will take the path of least resistance. The obvious path of least resistance is to do what you have always done. By doing even small things differently than you normally would, can have a life changing impact.
If we always do what we have always done, we will always get what we have always got.

Changing our daily decisions slightly will train our brain, by helping us to notice our brains taking us down the same path over and over again. One of the biggest obstacles to creating real change in our lives is our natural desire to stay the same. If you don’t like change, you are in good company. Most of us don’t like change and don’t want to get out of our comfort zones. Unfortunately comfort rarely gets us where we want to be.
Don’t ignore this post, and please let me know how it goes for you. You can drop me a note here.
