It’s sad how some people choose to be stuck in the
same situation, no matter what! You can tell these
people apart from the rest of the crowd quite
They are found to be always complaining; and yet,
they will not do anything to change the situation
they are in. They will always talk about taking a
break or calling it quits, but will never do it,
because they are afraid to step out of the cocoon
they have built for themselves.
The Cheese in Your Life!
Long ago, a psychologist conducted a brilliant
experiment with rats. He put a rat at the mouth of
three tunnels, only one of which had cheese. The
rat went up and down the tunnels, but quickly
changed track when it found that there was no
payoff in the two tunnels and only scampered up
the one that had the payoff.
But unfortunately there are many human beings, who
in spite of being highly evolved creatures, do not
seem to have the simple judgement that the rat
showed in this experiment.
These human beings spend an entire lifetime moving
up and down the same tunnel looking for something
that does not exist and yet refuse to change
track. In fact, they also have their family
members, friends and acquaintances concede that
the track they are in is the right one, despite
being fully aware of the fact that there is no
“cheese” at the end of the tunnel.
What they do not realise is that carrying out this
pointless exercise for the rest of their lives
will do them no good, and in fact be
counterproductive, because they will end up
feeling unsatisfied and unfulfilled.
If you are empathising with this situation, and
don’t want to be like a rat who goes up and the
same tunnel where there is no cheese, you can take
action right now!
Everything in life is about making a choice. It is
as easy as choosing what you want to wear! You
would not want to wear those out of fashion
clothes that are lying in your wardrobe now would
you? So why choose to be in a job or a life
situation that is sucking the energies of life out
Change is in Your Hand.
It’s time you took matters into your own hand, if
you really want things to change. Why wait and
blame the situation, if you find yourself stuck?
There is no denying that taking the first step is
indeed a difficult thing to do, but unless you do
take the first step nothing is ever going to
You can keep telling yourself that there are
logical and reasonable explanations about why you
are in the situation that you are in now, but it
is worthwhile to remember that you alone are
responsible for it.
All the present situations that you find yourself
in now, are a result of the choices that you have
made in the past. And if you choose to stay put
and do nothing to change the situation, things are
going to be like that forever!
It is indeed like moving up and down the same
tunnel without any payoffs! Don’t unnecessarily
delay your life by procrastinating. If you do
that, it will be like saying you want to drive
only when all the signals in the city are green.
As impossible as that may be, so is the fact that
life is going to be without any problems. Change
may seem to be difficult and uncomfortable in the
beginning, but eventually you will find yourself
liberated, if you truly choose to do what your
