Imagine that a change you want to make is a thousand-pound boulder you’ve got to move.
You push with all your weight against it, and it doesn’t budge. Not an inch.
So you take a break, and try again.
It still doesn’t move. Try again; same result.
Eventually, you realize the boulder is not going to move, and you give up, feeling defeated and powerless.
Until you remember what Archimedes said: “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.”
It turns out that focusing on the lever, not the boulder, makes all the difference when it comes to making a real change in your life. But how exactly do you make this shift?
