There’s an old saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Do you agree with that?
Of course, you’re not a dog and you probably don’t do any “tricks”. But this saying isn’t really about dog tricks. It’s about people and our ability to learn new things and change our ways. Actually, that’s not entirely correct either.
Sure, ability has something to do with it. But the real key to learning new skills and changing our behavior is our desire to do so.
Unfortunately, most people become comfortable and content with what they’re currently doing. They use this “not great, but not bad” mentality as their justification for staying where they’re at. I’ve done it in the past and I’m guilty of doing it in the present. How about you?
How often do you tell yourself that you need to improve or change something? How often do you actually follow through and do it?
