The Spider and the Fly

“Step into my parlor, said the Spider to the Fly…”

(Mary Howitt, 1799 – 1888)

We talk a lot about Little Voice holding us back with negative chatter.

Sometimes, though, its a sweet, seductive voice…

“I deserve a treat, and one scoop of ice cream won’t destroy my diet.”

“Take a break, dude! You’ve been working too hard! There’s plenty of time to make those calls later.”

It’s easy to forget that the Little Voice can be even more dangerous when it stops berating us and turns, instead, to seduction—a voracious, honey-tongued spider luring us into it’s web.

Just for Today:

When you recognize you’re about to slip into the sticky parlour, clap your hands, yell “STOP!” and get back to what you need to do right now. Do it, then celebrate the WIN of staying present and focused on your task.
