How many people do you hear complaining about their job, where they live, how little money they have, or how they can never take a vacation?

How many times have you heard those same people, when they hear about someone else who made a lot of money from an idea, say,

“I could have done that!” But yet, they didn’t.

And they continue to complain about where they are in life.

A friend of mine owns a dog grooming business, and she buys supplies from another pet business in town.

One day, as she talked torepparttar owner, she found out thatrepparttar 142979 owner’s husband made liver treats for dogs—he bought liver at wholesale, cut it into thin strips, dried it, packaged it, and retailed it to pet businesses. Eventually he got a contract with a distribution company and was doing very well with what started out as a simple side business.

My friend was upset when she was talking to me. She explained that she had had that idea several months earlier, but didn’t follow through because she didn’t think it would fit into her business.

“I could have done that!” she said, with some resentment in her voice.

You know what? She was right. She could have “done” that. She hadrepparttar 142980 idea. But she didn’t follow through.

Are You Suffering from the Autopilot Dilemma?

Written by Jason M. Gracia

An epidemic is occurring all around you, and there is a good chance it has already found its way into your life. It begins slowly at first, nearly imperceptible. But it grows. In time it can take over your entire life. I have seen it happen too many times, and if you don't act now, it may happen to you.

It's easy to fall intorepparttar trap. Well-intentioned individuals of all ages don't mean for it to happen, but that doesn't matter. It takes much more than good intentions to steer clear of this problem. If all it took was good intentionsrepparttar 142978 world would be packed with people living their dreams and accomplishing their goals. But that's not how it works, and this trap is one ofrepparttar 142979 most common reasons why it has happened too often inrepparttar 142980 past, and will continue to happen inrepparttar 142981 future.

What exactly are we dealing with here? What is so deadly torepparttar 142982 goals and hopes you have stored away in your head?


ACTION WITHOUT PURPOSE A very unusual experiment was conducted by John Fabre,repparttar 142983 French naturalist, consisting of processionary caterpillars, a type of caterpillar that blindly followsrepparttar 142984 one in front of it. This explainsrepparttar 142985 name processionary caterpillar. The experiment consisted of several of these caterpillars, a flowerpot filled torepparttar 142986 rim with dirt, and pine needles.

The caterpillars formed a complete circle aroundrepparttar 142987 rim ofrepparttar 142988 flowerpot, withrepparttar 142989 first one touchingrepparttar 142990 back ofrepparttar 142991 last one. The pine needles,repparttar 142992 food ofrepparttar 142993 processionary caterpillar, were placed inrepparttar 142994 center ofrepparttar 142995 circle.

The caterpillars began their procession aroundrepparttar 142996 flowerpot, one followingrepparttar 142997 other in a circle. This went on hour after hour, day after day, for an entire week. Inrepparttar 142998 end, every one ofrepparttar 142999 caterpillars dropped dead of starvation.

The one thing that could have saved them was only six inches away, but without purposeful thought or action,repparttar 143000 caterpillars continued with a habitual routine that eventually proved too much to endure.

This is happening to people you know, maybe even you, although not to this degree. Get stuck doingrepparttar 143001 same old thing every single day and your goals, sitting only inches away, are as good as gone.

Plain and simple. You might think it's a little too simple, but falling into a routine can destroy your life. I have very strong beliefs about this because I have seen it happen to people close to me, as I'm sure you have as well. Good friends and family start off with bright hopes forrepparttar 143002 future, but their routine begins to take their place. 'No time, no time,' is a common excuse. After seventy years of having no time to dorepparttar 143003 things you have always wanted to do you'll end up with nothing but a good excuse inrepparttar 143004 end.
