A point comes when you no longer have any excuses to tell yourself, all the reasons you use to justify why you haven’t started a certain project or given up that annoying bad habit eventually run out. You can lie to everyone around you, you can even lie to yourself for awhile but after awhile even you will stop believing the lies and excuses you tell yourself.
Why do we put things off until the last minute, why do we wait until our backs are against the wall?
The bigger the change the bigger the sacrifice. If it was going to be easy we’d have done it by now right? We anticipate how hard something will be and this is what stops us from starting in the first place. The thought of not knowing how to do something makes us uncomfortable and puts us off, wanting instant results and not getting them discourages us, thinking about how to start stresses us out so we don’t.
If we stop at the first mind hurdle we’ll never make it out the blocks to the action stage. Some would rather not start if they can’t guarantee success but ask yourself this, isn’t not starting failure anyway?
Enough is enough! We can’t keep thinking like this, we can’t keep allowing ourselves to be our own downfall. What we put in is what we get out, it’s as simple as that.
We can keep doing the bare minimum and continue to get minimum results or we can choose to say now is the time and do more.
