The same thinking equals the same results. If you want to see change, then you have to change the way you behave, think and respond. It will take some practice, but it can be done with persistence. In the end, it is up to you how quickly or slowly change comes.

The following is a short, but powerful poem to serve as inspiration on your journey to breaking old, destructive habits and creating new, positive habits in their place.

 

Autobiography in Five Short Chapters

Chapter I

I walk down the street.  There is a hole in the sidewalk.  I fall in.  I am lost.  I am helpless.  It isn’t my fault.  It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter II

I walk down the same street.  There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.  I pretend I don’t see it.  I fall in again.  I can’t believe I am in the same place.  But it isn’t my fault.  It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter III

I walk down the same street.  There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.  I see it is there.  I still fall in.  It’s a habit.  My eyes are open.  I know where I am.  It is my fault.  I get out immediately.

Chapter IV

I walk down the same street.  There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.  I walk around it.

Chapter V

I walk down another street.
