Going Insane

We all have heard the famous Albert Einstein quote “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”
According to that definition, we are all pretty much insane.

Our lives are the result of our actions. That pretty much goes without saying.
Nobody will argue that given the opportunity to go back in time we would do things differently, the second time around.
But here is the conundrum: We all know that in order to change our lives we have to change the way we act, but very few of us are doing it.

That new job you dream about will not come knocki9ng at your door. You have to do your due diligence and go to that interview that will open the door for your dream job.
Unless of course, you have a rich relative that will hand it to you.

Same thing goes for anything else in your life If you want to start a business, if you want a new relationship or whatever you want in your life, will not happen until you start acting.
Yet we go day in day out doing the same routine and expecting somehow by some miracle a change will happen.

Well. Things eventually change but usually into a worse situation and it is usually at that time that we are forced to act and save the day.

So why it is so hard to change?
It is because you are not Einstein.

Einstein thinks and speaks from a superior level of consciousness.
For him, change is a necessity. Breaking the rules, a way of life. He is a genius that has raised above the human animal.
The rest of us are still trapped in the conditioning of our primitive ancestors.

If you have a decent life, maybe not the dream life you want but a safe existence you don’t want to change it. As bad as you think your life is you have become used to it just like a pair of old shoes or jeans you know you have to throw away but they are just very comfy.

You see we are conditioned by our instinct of preservation.
Survival has been imprinted in our genes for thousands maybe millions of years.
The unknown is the human greatest fear. To give up something you know for something you don’t know is pure insanity. Unless you are an Einstein and have risen past your animal instincts.

But we don’t live in a jungle anymore and the perils that our instincts were supposed to protect us do not exist anymore.
What would be the worst that could happen if you changed your job?
You are not going to be eaten by a sabretooth tiger, you are not going to die.
In the worst scenario, you will have to take a less paid job until you put yourself back on the tracks.

Make it a task to overcome your instincts and go for the changes you desire.
Give yourself permission to go insane from time to time.
Just make sure it doesn’t become a habit.
