The definition of insanity if you keep doing the same thing over and over again, and you keep getting the same results, that is what some people call the definition of insanity. I heard about two men who were avid moose hunters. And every year, they would charter a private plane to take them deep deep into the backwoods country and the Canadian and Canadian back country. And this year, they went hunting as they usually did, and the team was especially good. In fact, in a few days, each of them was managed to bag a moose. Big moose, too. And so they had they were ready to go. So they radioed for their pilot to come and pick them up. The plane came and the pilot took one look at the hunters and these two gigantic animals, these two gigantic moose, and the hood told the hunters, this isn't gonna work. They, the plane just can't carry such a heavy load. And the 200 we got it. We spent all week hunting for these moose. And besides, the pilot we hired last year was able to do this and he wasn't worried about the moose, wait, why can't you? Why can't you do this. And after all, we're paying for your service here. And I went back and forth. And they argued about it and the fighter pilot finally relented. And he allowed them to load these two giant moose onto the airplane. Now they took off you see plane, they were able to get off the lake a little bit. And the plane is only airborne for a few minutes when it lost altitude and crashed, crashed into the woods. And the men all the three of the men struggled other wreckage. And in one hunter se other Where are we and his friend answered about a mile further that we got last year. If you keep doing the same thing, and you keep getting the same results, then that's the definition of insanity. It's true a flying with moves that are too heavy for the plane, and it's true and living your life as well. I want you to think about something, what's not working in your life? And are you still doing it? Are you still doing a habit that you've said forever that you're trying to break? But you keep doing the same thing over and over again, just because it's a habit? Are you still treating an important relationship in your life with your spouse, or your kids or your parents in the same way, and still getting the same results from them that may or may not be so good? What is the source of the frustration in your life? What about that project you have in your life that you keep saying you're going to we're going to ground to it. And you keep promising to yourself that you're going to complete? Why aren't you making progress on that? Is it because you're still mired in old habits you keep doing over and over again? Anyhow? Do you not have enough money to pay the bills? And what are you doing? In order to deal with that problem? Are you just sitting there thinking about and student about it? at work? Are you ready to give us the same obstacles with your boss or the job at hand? And are you doing the same thing over and over again and just complaining and whining about it? I think you get the point here today. If you keep doing the same thing over and over again and you expect different results. It's just not working for you is it? Think about how that's working. And my encouragement is to try something different. If you keep the truth is if you keep doing the same things, you will keep getting the same results. So if you don't like the way things are turning out, guess what? Change, change something, break a habit. Try something different. This for you don't have to live in an insane world by doing insane things, and expecting your life to change. The way your life would change is only by being sane and commit taking charge of your own life 100% responsibility of your own life. Try something different. choose not to live within the definition of insanity.
