New Path

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 8:05 am

C125775 mI was at my oldest son’s house for dinner over the weekend and we were talking about new paths.

There seemed to be a formula for new paths that emerged from the conversation.

1. Recognize the path you’re on isn’t working.

2. Take a step in an unfamiliar or uncomfortable direction.

It seems like a straight forward strategy but there are fits and starts especially with Step 2.

We have been conditioned that change should be easy and it’s not. It takes attention and methodical work, work that doesn’t immediately seem to pay off. It’s the fairy tale of easy that causes bursts and busts with our new regime.

We become like the person who plants a seed in the ground and wants to dig it up the next day to see if it’s sprouting. When we don’t see any new growth, we get frustrated and dismiss our new path as unworkable.

That gets us back walking the old, yet comfortable path again.

If you want to walk a new path, you have to become familiar with experiencing the uncomfortable. It’s the discomfort that signals you are walking a new path. It seems like an oxymoron but you have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable for a much longer period than you are currently used to.

I won’t say that discomfort has to become your friend, just your temporary ally. I can’t tell you how long it will take for you to become comfortable walking a new path, I only know that it needs your undivided attention for you to be successful.

Building new paths is not a part-time job. It has to be a mission to achieve fruition.

“Presto Path” and “Abracadabra Avenue” are covered with fairy dust and magic wands that the winds of change cannot blow away. You have to step off onto a new path for the real magic of change to happen.

I applaud anyone who takes the first step; you will applaud yourself when your new path is covered with your footprints.

All the best,

John
