A few days ago, I was working in my office and observed a fly buzzing up and down my glass office door.

It clearly wanted to go outside, but was unable to find a way.

Annoyingly, it buzzed around for a few minutes, distracting me as it went.

I got up and opened the door, but the insect ignored the opening and kept moving up and down the glass.

As I cursed the fly and its stupidity, I realised how similar we can be to the fly on the window.

When confronted with a problem, too often we are creatures of habit.

Whether it’s to do with our career, relationships, weight or journey of faith, we continue to do the same thing over and over again, getting the same frustrating result every time.

Don’t be that fly.

If there’s something that you don’t like about how you live, make a change.

If you’re annoying everyone around you with your incessant problems and complaints, take action and do something about it.

Don’t keep making the same mistakes over and over, learn your lesson and move on.

And don’t bang your head against the glass when there’s an open door next to you.
