Episode 135

Do you are ever feel like you are just going around in circles in your life?  What patterns are you repeating to give you the illusion you are traveling around in a circle?

Let me share with you another true story.

As you may know by reading my blog posts and listening to my podcasts, that I have worked as a janitor in a bar. I also worked as a janitor at a grade school which included the grades of kindergarten through six grade. 

During the summer months, one of the big tasks at the grade school was to re-paint all the lines on the playground.  The playground included numerous hop-scotch outlines, circle outlines for dodge ball, tag, duck, duck, goose and other games, and outlines for several basketball courts.

Each day for a couple of weeks I would carefully paint the lines on the circles with yellow paint.  Each day, several times a day, I would pick a starting point with my paint roller on a circle and follow a circular path around the circle, ending up where I started.  I was using gallons and gallons of paint and traveling miles the painting lines going nowhere. I always ending up back where I started on the circle.

How can you change the repetitive patterns and not travel around in circles in your own life?

Changing your point of view and your actions to remove or alter repetitive patterns allows you to make a positive impact in your own life and not travel around in circles.
