The Straw That Broke the Camel’s Back

“The straw that broke the camel’s back” and “The last straw” are sayings that indicate the tipping point that causes change. The English language is full of such sayings, another is “The biter bit”, when someone takes agro for so long then can take it no more and retaliates. Why do we endure discomfort in a situation until a final event makes us react and make a change?

We might be reacting to a disastrous relationship, a job we hate, a long commute to work, crowded housing, being overweight or 1001 other things, when suddenly we realize we have had enough and then eventually we make a move to change the problem. Some people are more tolerant, and put up with their problem all their lives, or maybe don’t know how to change things, for example battered wives become so down-trodden and lacking in confidence they endure the problem for too long.

Life on earth is so short, so why put up with things you can change; make yours and your family’s lives the best they can be. Make a resolution to change anything that is annoying you and you will be more productive and happier in all areas of your life.

I recently read a book again after 20 years: “Awaken the Giant Within”, by Anthony Robbins. It made a much stronger impact on this reading. It demonstrates how easy it is to change our values, beliefs and desires if we decide to change, and how to bring about huge changes in every area of our lives.

If you were to change something in your life what would it be? What are the things you are most dissatisfied with? Is it a relationship, your weight, or perhaps your working conditions?

Have you always wondered what it would be like to work at home? Maybe you would like a better work-life balance, with time freedom, and no more commuting
