“There’s a small fly burning out the last of its short life’s energies in a futile attempt to fly through the glass of a windowpane. The whining wings tell the poignant story of the fly’s strategy — try harder. Across the room, ten steps away, the door is open. Ten seconds of flying time and this small creature could reach the outside world it seeks. With only a fraction of the effort now being wasted, it could be free of this self-imposed trap. The breakthrough possibility is there. It would be so easy.” - Price Pritchett P.H.D.
This book by Price Pritchett is a must read for anyone wanting to grow and get better intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially.
At times, we are all like that fly on the windowpane.
We work harder, longer and more persistent but nothing seems to change the result.
Why is this?
Our parents, grand parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and everyone else in our early life did the best that they could do with what they had at the time. We love them and respect them for what they attempted to instill in our fragile minds as children.
In spite of this and for whatever reason, we were taught to focus on present circumstances.
Present circumstances are just that, present circumstances.
Present circumstances fly through the space of time at a gazillion miles an hour.
However, our prehistoric brain has taught us that they are here to stay and we should focus on them intently.
So what do we do?
We dwell on the present image until it is firmly entrenched in our psyche.
We’ve all been there and done that.
There are two camps of thought, the dwellers and the movers.
Which one are you?
The dwellers love to dwell on the present circumstance and try to figure out all the possible equations regarding the why, what when, where, how etc.
Some dwellers are continually dwelling on the circumstance for days, months and sometimes years and never let go of it.
On the other hand, the movers move on past the present circumstance.
They realize that it is real and personal but do not allow it to immobilize their future efforts.
These people understand that in order to move forward, they must process it, forgive and release it to the universe.
As a result, their psychological house no longer has this tenant holding them hostage for any length of time.
In some cases where people have developed these fine tuned skills, they release the circumstance in a matter of minutes.
Movers don’t want to waste their valuable time on nonproductive energy.
They want their thoughts, feelings, actions, and ultimate results to be purposeful and fulfilling.
Don’t be that fly on the window unless you are bent about your own psychological demise.
