Those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
Warren and Sue Binedell, Living Life As We Choose, Digital Entrepreneurs
A scientist divided a pond in half with a pane of glass.
Then he filled both sides of the pond with fish.
And for the first few days, fish on both sides constantly bumped into the pane of glass.
In time, the fish learned that the pane was impassable, and avoided it entirely.
The scientist then removed the pane of glass.
And the fish were now free to swim the entire length of the pond.
But none of them did.
They had learned their lesson too well.
Those fish grew old and died.
They never knew that the barrier they based their lives around had been removed years ago.
As with fish, so it is with us.
We look at our lives and see three things: the place where we are now, the place where we want to be, and the wall dividing them.
Maddeningly, the wall is translucent: we can see through to the other side, imagining how much better our lives could be, if only we were strong enough, smart enough, confident enough.
And so we live out our days swimming slow circles, resigned to our shrunken kingdoms.
You swear the wall is foot thick and bulletproof, but in truth it’s precariously thin, like a skein of ice on a puddle.
All you must do is turn your head and move forward.
Keep on finning slowly towards what you desire.
The wall dissolves as soon as you put your nose in.
ANYTHING about your life can be changed.
Your body, your hobbies, your business, your relationship, your legacy… all can be reborn instantly, at any moment.
Everything is always hanging in the balance.
You are always just one choice away from change.
One little step.
