There is a cricket in my wall this morning! It is a very energetic cricket, continuously chirping to let me know he is there. The cricket has been at this now for hours. I wonder if he is tired! I also wonder if there are any other crickets in my wall! Knowing my two sons, it is highly likely that they brought the cricket inside and let it go. In that case that cricket can make all the noise it wants, and no other cricket will ever hear him!
My question then is: will the cricket continue to try and find other crickets? Or will he have faith that another cricket will somehow make it inside the house? Is the cricket going to keep on making the noise, with nothing to eat, nothing to drink, until it dies in the wall?
What about you? Are you doing something over and over that is not working? Maybe you are in the wrong place! Have you considered other options for doing what you are doing?
For instance, are you happy doing the work you do? If you are, congratulations! If not, how long are you going to drag yourself to work every day before you look at other options?
The difference between the cricket in my wall and us is this: The cricket will most likely die in the wall because he doesn’t have the power of reasoning to understand his options. You, on the other hand, have this power and were given the power of choice. Every day you can make decisions that change everything. Every minute is a brand new chance, with new choices to make.
Are you making your choices? Or are you, like the cricket, hoping something happens?
