What We Can Learn from Albert Einstein.

Today, I want to discuss one of my favorite quotes of all time:

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” -Albert Einstein

Isn’t that so true? So many of my clients have come to me for years to help them decide if they want to start a divorce to leave their relationship and try something new to move forward because they are unhappy.

I tell them to listen to what Albert Einstein has to say regarding insanity. We all know that if you expect someone else to make you happy, that’s not where your true happiness comes from. And if you expect someone to change, that isn’t going to happen. If you are in this situation, you should probably bank on that and then decide to either stay in the relationship and somehow make it work (which starts with your happiness, not theirs), or make a decision to move on.

In a previous Monday Morning Message, I talked about how some relationships go through their course and it’s time to say goodbye. You love that person, had great years with them, and maybe you created a wonderful family with them, but it’s time to leave.

If you’re in that cycle, I beg you to consider what Albert Einstein had to say and maybe consider the decision you’re making: to stay in the same situation, expecting different results, or to move on.

Stay healthy in mind and body and have an amazing rest of the week.
