Environment is Stronger than Willpower

I remember reading this line in a home study lessons I took by Paramahansa Yogananda.  They were just words. Some part of me hoped it was not true. In fact I would say that a good deal of my life was spent trying to prove this statement wrong.

Every time I went on a vacation to California, after a few days, I would reach a point of clarity about my life and what I wanted to do.   Problem was as soon as I returned home, “home” and “habit” would engulf me back into my old routines and the clarity and the plans I had made while away would be rescheduled, put on hold, lost,and then forgotten.

I just did not get it- How could I be so clear when I was away on a trip, but could not hold on to that when I got home to my comfortable apartment.

It has taken many years for me to finally accept that statement “Environment is stronger than willpower”. I am no longer trying to disprove it.  I see the reality of it and have experienced it many times.

Getting away even for a few days or a few hours into nature can bring me that clarity.

Feeling stuck in a rut?

Take a Vacation!

Just 3 days and 2 nights in a hotel,  a completely different environment,   can help you get clear.  Make some solid plans with dead lines while you are away.  Get an accountability partner to help you stay focused when you return.

Want to give it a try?
