You Are Not A Tree!

July 18, 2023 | Tips and Insights

I heard a wise man once say to a group of people.. You are not a tree!

If you don’t like where you are, move.

Change your job.

Change your relationship.

Change where you are living.

You're not stuck.

At least most people, most the time, can make more changes than they think they can.

In fact, most people are STUCK in life because they don’t realise that they can change!

They are so full of reasons and justifications of why they can't!

“I can’t quit my job, I need it for my survival”

I had a client who was in a very bad job for her, but she was the breadwinner for the family and managed to convince herself that she had to stay. Her symptoms of stress and physical pain were growing, her sleeping troubles and anxiety were also building. It was OBVIOUS she needed to move on, but was so stuck in thoughts about why she couldn’t.

EVENTUALLY - after so much pain, she decided to get a new job. One of the first things she said to me was: “I don’t know why I put up with the pain for so long”.

Some people rave to me about how they have a high tolerance to pain - and sure, than can be a great thing - but it also can mean you put up with lots for too long.

Sometimes, the pain in LIFE is to get you to CHANGE your LIFE!!!

Wake up, make the change, move on - your future happier self is waiting to meet you!

You are not a tree, move!
