Take the Easy Way Out – Day 193 of 365 Days to a Better You

Today’s Thought

Take it easy. Take it easy. Don’t let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.
~The Eagles

Do you have a tendency over-think things? Are you expert at taking the simplest task and making it complex? As Avril Lavigne sang, “Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?”

There are no extra points for making your life harder than it needs to be. Often your first impulse is the the correct impulse. Learn to trust it. The shortest route to victory is as meritorious as the longest. Buying the first car you like is more efficient than looking at five more before you decide that’s the one you like.

I’m not saying not to work hard or go the extra mile for your dreams. I’m saying when life gives you a chance to take a break or offers you simplicity, take it. Take the easy way out when there is one. Save your energy and your fight for life’s real challenges rather turning mole hills into mountains.

Declutter. Uncomplicate. Simplify. Let go. Take the easy way out when it serves you just as well.

Be well, my friends! Thanks for stopping by again. If this post spoke to you, please share or with a friend.

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
