Every Sunday I present a new thought of the week. Something to get you thinking about life and your place in it.
This week’s thought of the week is
Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
Oh my goodness. Quite a silly question, but one that can really show a lot about yourself once you take time to answer it.
I do push the elevator more than once. When I think about it, I really don’t think it will make it go faster, but at the time I do.
I think that is revealing my lack of patience when it comes to dealing with things outside of my control. I have a lack of faith also that things are going to happen when they are meant to happen, so I try to speed it up and force it to work to my grand plans and time schedules instead.
Oh no! I think I must be a control freak!!
Lesson learned from this simple question: Take a step back and trust in things to work exactly as they are meant to work.
How do you control the elevator button and what are your thoughts on what this reveals about yourself?
