Insanity

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein

We all make mistakes from time to time – it is inevitable if we choose to live our life. Realistically, every person born into this world, are sooner or later going to make their first mistake.

Since a mistake can be characterized as something that we have done that we regret doing, you would think that after making a mistake we would learn from it and get better.

Wrong.

Time after time we make the same mistakes over and over again to only fall flat on our faces once again.

Why?

It is obvious; we apparently are not getting to the root of the problem and addressing the issue. It is very similar to the overweight person that seeks every book, magazine, personal trainer, inspirational movie, fad diet, magical weight loss machine etc. on the face of the earth to only realize unless they address the root of the problem (that is causing the issue) they will continue to have the habits they have (ie. poor eating habits) & will never get to where they want to be (skinny & happiness).

So, if you are making the same mistake over and over again, realize this: It doesn’t happen again and again by coincidence and don’t think you have addressed the issue if you keep making the mistake – because evidently you haven’t.

Find for the answer and address it. Don’t fight it or try and find something to mask it. And if you find yourself always looking for an answer – chances are you probably already have it.
