Why aren’t I getting different results?
Many famous people have said something about this. Henry Ford said, “If you Always Do What You’ve Always Done…You’ll Always Get What You’ve Always Got.” “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” This quote is often credited to Einstein.
So if something isn’t working out for you, isn’t it time to do something different? I can see you saying “If I knew what I should be doing, I’d be doing it” How do you do something different if that is all you know.
This is why it’s so important to stay open-minded and expose yourself to new ideas all the time. Be inspired by people in the same field and away from the field. You never know where cross-pollination may happen.
Then there’s the power of knowledge through books. Where you learn from those that have done what it is you are attempting to do.
People often use different analogies for life. From how playing tennis is how you can perform in your work. How you approach immersion in cold water to how you face challenges. And many others.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple conversation with a friend or a coach to change your perspective. But first, you need to know that you are doing the Same Same otherwise there will be no Different.
