Which is heavier? A pound of bricks or a pound of feathers? Well, they both weigh the same, right? Now let’s use each as a metaphor to life’s challenges.
We all go through the same struggles. Regardless of where we came from or our individual level of success. But our ability to work through difficulties depend on the choices we make.
If you consistently make poor choices in life, you end up chipping away at the pound of bricks. Why? Because your decisions have left you with less resources and energy, making obstacles hard to overcome. But if you make smart choices, you can scatter a pound of feathers into the air. The challenges are still difficult but you’ll have better options and more strength to defeat them.
Or maybe you’re looking at your problems as a pound of bricks when they’re really a pound of feathers.
So, if you’re chipping away at those bricks, what choices have you made that led you to that wall? How are you perceiving your obstacles? What can you change now to put you on the path to accomplishing your goal?
