Changes and Inspiration

2014 is still new. I think whenever New Year comes; people do a lot more reviewing and planning. As we all know reviewing and planning is the easy part. It’s taking the steps to actually do the plans that trips most of us. I think one of the best things to do when starting something new or making changes is to write down the main reason for it. So when you are having a tough time, you can look back for a reminder. Also, let yourself take as many steps as you need until you get use to it. We are truly only fighting ourselves.

Here is a great fable from Aesop that best fit this thought. Thank you for your time.

The Fox and the Lion

When first the Fox saw the Lion he was terribly frightened, and ran away and hid himself in the wood. Next time however he came near the King of Beasts he stopped at a safe distance and watched him pass by. The third time they came near one another the Fox went straight up to the Lion and passed the time of day with him, asking him how his family were, and when he should have the pleasure of seeing him again; then turning his tail, he parted from the Lion without much ceremony.

Familiarity breeds contempt.
