It’s 71 degrees in the house. I step outside my front door here and it’s 8 degrees. What does that have to do with Mornings with Mark?
It is only a door that separates me from 71 degrees inside and the 8 degrees outside.
It’s maybe a three- or four-inch door but it keeps me from the dramatic difference outside. How does this simple concept apply to the things we do on a daily basis?
How does it apply to things we do not feel we can accomplish?
In reality, it probably is just a slight thing we have to do and boom, we’re there. All I have to do is open the handle of this door to walk outside into the cold.
How many times have we said we cannot do something because we just do not feel it is possible? How many times have we waived off something as ‘too extreme?’
Even though all I have to do is open the door and walk through for my situation to change dramatically, I too often see people say they just cannot deal with their current situation.
Yet, all they have to do is make a small change and their situation would be different.
Now, I am not putting myself on a pedestal; I’m in the same boat. Many times, there are things I get hung up on and I fail to realize all I have to do is open the door, step through and my situation will be different.
The lesson for this week is for you to acknowledge what your ‘door’ is.
Where is the door that you are going to be able to walk through to change your situation, to create a better and different outcome, and to be able to help somebody else?
Look for the door today. Look for the door this week.
As for me, I am not going to walk through this specific door. I like it at 71 degrees.
