Why do you tug-of-war?
Let's be honest. We all do it. That crazy little thing called the tug-of-war between the logical head and sappy heart. Admit it! You've been there, done that. It doesn't matter if you're...
- Debating whether to stay in the dead-end job, or leap at being an entrepreneur
- Fighting the demons about leaving a rocky relationship, or staying in the comfort of the warm body
- Wishing for a deeper, more intimate relationship, or going for another "booty call"
- Staring at that glazed donut, or knowing a sensible protein shake would be better for you
Regardless of the debate, what would be different if you didn't look at it as a tug-of war, and a battle to win? How about instead of saying "#$%* it!", instead you said, "Let's drop it!" Set your hands free of the damn rope and stand still, very still and ask this one question...
"If I wasn't making this situation a tug-of-war, how would it be different?"
Often it's the drama queen in all of us that just sneaks up on us and says, "Let's make this an Oscar-winning performance," when all we really need to do is be still and let the stillness guide us!
