There are many repeating patterns in life.

Some are good, but more often they are patterns that keep us stuck.

We choose to do the same behaviours and then are amazingly surprised that we get the same outcomes, often sighting bad luck to excuse the same or worse result.

Every year people rush to gym’s in January, only to have given up by February as the gruelling exercise regime they have set themselves is unsustainable.

We have the misery of the Christmas credit card bills caused by the annual consumption fest of buying more ‘stuff’ than anyone needs.

Change comes from small, marginal, regular sustainable steps taken daily not from setting huge revolutions in our routines that no one can keep to.

Repeat good behaviours regularly, do not keep repeating the same bad behaviours leading to the same repeating bad outcomes.

Knowledge is power only if you apply it.
