“When you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.” Unknown
Have you ever felt like you have gotten caught up in an Infinite Loop in any area of your life? You know those times when you feel like you have been working really hard and trying to get things to fall in place – but, for whatever reason, you are stuck and not getting all the results you want.
You may have even had flashes of progress and thought you finally broke free from the Infinite Loop, but then something happened that set you back again or you realized that you hadn’t made any real progress and you are basically in the same place you started.
I have definitely experienced my fair share of Infinite Loops. I was a master at complaining about situations and why things weren’t working. I was even really good at being able to describe exactly where I wanted to be.
But, I wasn’t really doing anything different that was going to break me out of the Infinite Loop and get me different results. In fact, for the most part, I was essentially doing the same things, but expecting somehow or someway things would eventually fall into place.
I was finding excuse after excuse as to why I was stuck and they all made perfect sense to me. But, honestly, they were just excuses that justified me repeating the same pattern and not doing all the things I could have to get me to the new place I wanted to be. You know that good old quote -
“You can have results or excuses, but not both.” It was literally playing out in my life.
The Potential Infinite Loops:
Infinite Loops literally make you feel like you are on a “Human Hamster Wheel” – you are running and running, but not really getting ahead.
1. Money issues – continually feeling “stretched”
2. Not really making the progress you want
3. Relationship after relationship with the wrong person
4. Weight issues
5. Continually choosing to do things you know you shouldn’t
6. Feeling Uninspired
7. Hating your job
8. Having the same unresolved issues in your relationship
9. Consistently feeling upset or depressed
10. Staying angry at someone
The list goes on and on.
Well, you know what I decided? I am so done with Infinite Loops in all areas of my life and of course I want you to join me. It’s time to break through each and every one of them and that means we have to be on the lookout for them because often times they aren’t easy to see.
They can exist under our radar – especially if they don’t make us uncomfortable enough or if we have somehow convinced ourselves that is “just how life goes”. But, nothing could be farther from the truth.
We are meant to break out of every single one of these Infinite Loops. Life is not about working really hard and trying to do what you are supposed to day after day just to end up disappointed and not have any results. Those aren’t the endings we are looking for and those also aren’t the endings we are meant to have.
The key is to decide you are no longer going to tolerate being trapped in any Infinite Loops and get serious about changing things up so you can free yourself.
The Possibility of Today:
1. Recognize the areas of your life where you may be caught up in an Infinite Loop.
2. Decide you aren’t going to stay where you are.
3. Choose to do things differently. You’ve got to change things up and literally do things differently than you have been. It’s time to get creative and find the way out. Search for solutions. Work with new people. Find information that will help you – (send me an e-mail email@example.com and I will put you on the early list for the new course I am creating to break free from Infinite Loops). Ask yourself: What can I do differently today? And, then go and do it. Yes, it’s important to say that you want things to change but, the real question is what are you actually doing to make that happen? Today is the day to start.
Live Today Better than Yesterday.
