So much of our daily lives is about patterns. Good and bad. We form habits and we tend to repeat them day in and day out. Why? Because it’s comfortable. Certainly, we can accomplish goals we have set forth by forming and executing healthy habits. But, humans like the “known.” We like to know what is in front of us. If we could, we would want to know the results of something in the future before even trying if we could. We want guarantees and we like taking the path of least resistance.

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees. First and foremost, let’s embrace that. Secondly, that path of least resistance you don’t want to get off may be keeping you from trying a new avenue that just might get you the results you’re looking for.

Sometimes the best way to find your way around a new town is by driving until you get lost. Try that new avenue. You’ll find your way home. We always do eventually.
