The easiest path, the intuitive path and the RIGHT path? Aren’t usually one in the same.
I shared this story in this video I did for my one on one coaching clients and I thought it was so relevant after seeing some comments in my Facebook group over the weekend, I wanted to share it with all of you…
You know those bug zappers…You’d be sitting out there and just hear pop! Pop! Bug after bug would fly into them even though they saw their friend bugs dying.
Why did they keep flying into the zappers even though they knew it would lead to their demise?!
Well…the obvious answer is…because they’re dumb bugs.
But honestly, if you look at how we often approach change? Our instincts really aren’t any different than those silly bugs.
We too do things we know we shouldn’t because they are INSTINCTUAL….and…well…EASY!
We take the path of least resistance even when we have evidence it isn’t good for us.
Our instincts don’t always guide us toward the best outcomes. As one of my clients told me one day, “My instinct is to eat ice cream, not protein.”
So why am I telling you this?
Because there is going to be lots of resistance when starting something new. Change is hard. And you’re going to want to default back to what is easy and somewhat instinctual.
But that’s what’s lead you here…to be seeking a CHANGE.
What is easy is easy. And if you just default back to what is easy?
You’re not going to see the results you want. You’re basically a bug flying into a bug zapper.
You don’t need to do extra to get results.
You just need to follow the plan.
It’s not about doing more, it’s just about changing habits, and for lack of a better way of saying it, not doing stupid stuff because it’s easy.
So this week, focus on moving forward. On making the hard change. If you’re uncomfortable?
Don’t be a bug!
