“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”
Brett Harris shares this quote in the book he wrote with his brother titled Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations. I recently signed up for Brett Harris’s emails, and he included that quote in one of his emails. I had heard this quote before, but this time I finally understand the truth and power behind that quote.
If I want to play the piano better, but never practice or take lessons, I’ll never get better. It doesn’t matter how much I talk about wishing I could play better, I won’t get better. If I always neglect playing the piano, I will always have the limited abilities that I do now.
How often do we go through life wishing we were better at something, had time for something, or wished we were doing something different all together? How often do we spend day after day just talking about it and complaining about it? If we don’t change what we are doing, our results won’t change either.
What are you doing in your life that you wish was different or wish you did better? Are you trying to take steps to change it or are you just complaining? Is there something you wish that you were better at but you never put time in to practice? What are steps that you could start taking today to change that? Think about it, share in the comments, and then don’t just stand there. Go do it.
Your sister in Christ,
