Same Ol’ Road


My previous blog post, http://wp.me/p1j3tp-4n was on habits. Some say we fall “victim” to habits. But the truth is we’re always in control of our choices. Set yourself up for success. I love “Autobiography in Five Short Chapters” by Portia Nelson. I’m posting below:

Autobiography in five short chapters

by Portia Nelson

CH 1

I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I fall in. I am lost…I am helpless.

It isn’t my fault.

It takes forever to get out.

CH 2

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I pretend I don’t see it.

I fall in again. I can’t believe I’m in the same place.

But it isn’t my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.

CH 3

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it is there.

I still fall in… it’s a habit.

My eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.

CH 4

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.

CH 5

I walk down another street.
