What Does It Mean To Have A Breaking Chain?

Is A Broken Chain Fixable?

Most everyone knows that a chain is only as strong as the weakest link. Yet, most of the time we don’t bother reflecting how and why our “chain” (method, system, approach) for doing something is breaking down, i.e. just not working.

When this occurs and you aren’t able to pinpoint the weak links (problem areas), do you simply repeat the same pattern and continue to get the same result?

Do you find yourself becoming increasingly frustrated, demoralized to the point where you lose your motivation and sometimes even give up?

Do you assume that because you haven’t been able to resolve your situation, that the best you can do is accept it and become resigned to a diminished outcome and quality of life?

Have you created a convincing argument for why this reduced outcome is the best that can be achieved (under the circumstances) despite the fact that you’ve never really opened yourself to an alternate ideas and solutions?

In my experience over many decades, I found that most people prefer to conclude change is not possible rather than opening themselves up to a deeper inquiry and to receiving support to resolve their issue.

Is there some area of your life right now that isn’t progressing the way you’d like despite a huge effort and commitment on your part?

What if..

  • Your situation or challenge can be resolved by clarifying exactly where the breakdown is happening and identifying a solution or remedy.
  • There are others with a different perspective for whom your “problem” is easily solvable?

As an example a man came to be with a case of severe stage fright that he lived with for many years. It prevented him from playing his guitar with groups of people. We were able to resolve his issue in less than 30 minutes using a simple method.


If you’re the type of person who insists on solving everything by yourself, you may never discover and that you can have what you want by just changing one item or adding one missing puzzle piece. I call this insistence on solving every problem by yourself, The “Lone Ranger Syndrome”. I view this as the most severe form of self-sabotage possible.

In most instances it comes down to a “need to be right.” What would you prefer be right about? That your problem is unsolvable or that a different approach can work better? Whatever you believe will become your truth, so it is your choice what you want to be right about.
