Aha! Moment Monday

Do you have an “easy” button? I just put new batteries in mine.

Years ago Staples designed this red button – the size of a paperweight – that when pressed says, “That was easy!” The button was featured in their commercials and by demand were sold in their stores (I tell more of the story in the book, SENSORY MEDIA.)

When a project, an event or even a conversation comes together brilliantly I enthusiastically hit my button and it’s like the universe confirms, “That was easy!”

The truth is anything worth having is worth working for but you and I both know that change and growth aren’t easy.

Aha! ~ “Don’t wish it was easy, wish you were better.” ~ Jim Rohn

When challenge strikes and obstacles are plenty it’s a reminder that there’s some growing to do. What are the new questions that need to be asked? What values or parameters need to be stated? What can’t be taken for granted? What skills need to be acquired to minimize those hurdles for next time?

“In times of change learners inherit the earth; where the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” ~ Eric Hoffer

If what you’re seeking answers your question, “How do I want to live?” then growing pains will be plenty. Let “learning” be your anti-inflammatory to make all your moves “easy”.
