If it Hurts, Move.

Several years ago ,we were involved in a network marketing company.  The company had a new product and thus we did quite well for quite some time.

The company , as do most multilevel companies would often hold motivational meetings and we attended as often as we could. Hoping to stay motivated, and get new ideas to pass on during our own motivational meetings.

During one such meeting our trainer relayed how people are often like a dog laying on a nail. He went on to say that an old dog will often lay on a nail and never get up and move because it doesn’t hurt enough. The dog is perfectly content to just lie there as long as the pain doesn’t get too severe.

People are like that also, they will often complain because something in their life isn’t as they would like it, but they often won’t do anything to change it. It doesn’t hurt enough for them to do anything . It’s easier to suffer a little than go through the agony of change, not knowing what lies head  if they decide to make some changes in their life.

This often goes on for years, not being happy, but not being unhappy enough to force them to move off the nail.

Finally , either the situation keeps getting worse, or the individual finally decides they have had enough and deserve better. They are finally prompted to action.

The pain of lying on the nail finally exceeds the pain of moving forward and they once again spring into action, creating the life they could have only imagined previously.
