When You Hit The Wall, STOP!

Stop moving.  Stop denying.  Stop attempting greater efforts.  Wasting your energy fighting The Wall simply wears you out even more.  So just stop and know that you are not alone – The Wall stops everyone.

Unfortunately, some people keep banging against it, trying to pound through it, all the while ignorant of the fact that they can’t.  Stop hitting The Wall.  You are not a child’s wind-up toy that, though having hit an immovable force, you must invariably and unsuccessfully persist.  Unlike the wind-up toy, you are not pre-programmed and left on autopilot.  Instead look at where you are.  Find out why there is a wall in your path.  What is causing The Wall to be in place?

The very presence of “The Wall” is forcing a change.  Oprah Winfrey said, “Failure is really God’s way of saying, ‘Excuse me, but you are moving in the wrong direction.’”  What is your wall forcing you to change?

We can sense our walls every day and either accept them or reject them.  Rejecting always puts off the inevitable.  It costs us more in the long term to deny The Wall than it would to recognize and act on it.  When was the last time you began to feel a cold coming on and denied it?  Eventually you had to give in and just allow yourself to be sick.

Accept and learn from The Wall.  It is trying to teach you something.  If nothing else, to sit back and slow down.
