I know an old lady who swallowed a fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
I think. She’ll. Die…
I know an old lady…
Ok I think you might remember that little
Diddy from elementary school.
Yeah, I mean who swallows
And eventually a horse?
Seriously, though who does that???
I’ll tell you who
A dead old lady. HA!
We can both agree that her methods might have been
A little off, but she was determined to fix her original mistake
Until she eventually just died
I feel you grandma.
Yesterday we talked about how it can take time to reach your potential
I said something along the lines of “…if you haven’t been burned out before
Then you’re either lying to yourself or you haven’t challenged yourself.”
I would have you consider that it is good to know and test your limits.
Scratch the ceiling, but don’t scratch so hard you fall over
Go unconscious and have to take extra time off
Only to find that when you get back, the ceiling is now
Covered in scratch resistant, stainless steel.
You see, I don’t know why that old lady swallowed the fly
But I do know why she eventually died.
Don’t let it happen to you.
Don’t wait until you are frustrated to the point of tears (or eating a horse)
Discover a new path to success that brings you closer to
Your goals without burning you out in flames
