How much closer to your goal are you today than yesterday? Did you ever find the time you've been looking for to get your To-Do list done. Life seems to always get in the way. If only you could call out of work and just commit that one day to jump-starting the rest of your life.
Doubt, fear or lack of inspiration. There are countless things that get all of the credit for why people never follow their dream or are simply unable to complete a task in a timely manner. "Will this be as good I think I can make it?", "Can I even do this?" Or "This isn't even how I want to spend my life."
You can twist and turn to find the words that describe inhibiting emotions and use them as justification to your pitfalls, or you take your emotions and do some serious self reflection.
I'm not talking the basic I'm sad bc I'm overweight let me go to the gym reflection. Though changing the body is one of the greatest things you can do. I want to look at the things we do in our days and how each of them make us feel. Our lives' are compounds of the things we do.
What thoughts and actions consume your day create a cycle. Consider this moment as you read this blog. If this is your first time here what would you have been doing instead. I want you to pinpoint moments in your life. That cycles were broken and began. Don't be one of the dick heads that say damn how did I get here. You better know.
Before I started this blog I would think of countless ideas. Many of them are still in my head in hopes of execution. I would think and think looking for a sign that this is the idea I should commit to. Rather than taking that first step I let time pass, my inspiration dissipate and doubt sink in.
What would I be doing that let time pass. Simply entertaining people and activities that pushed back things that actually made me feel accomplished. A lot of talking and no execution. When did I become such a statue.
Cycle - Bad Habits and Good People
That moment for me was after graduation. Life changed a lot and I realized I was not nearly as prepared for life as I thought I was. The stress took a toll on me mentally and physically. I let myself be consumed by the thought of being better but not what it takes to be.
I soon realized that just wasn't my issue but people around me as well. We spoke about the same things and in turn did the same things. Forever distracted by the pleasurable things that numb the unmeasurable pain. Sports, Weed and big butts. Take it how you want.
My final year in college I spent a lot of time by myself and it helped me figure out where I wanted to go in life. For the first time I saw the Forrest while still being able to admire the details of the trees.
I don't know what are catalyst in your life but I firmly believe in energy that comes from various people. People in your life should bring you joy and make you feel like you can do anything. They should inspire you to take that daunting first step. At first careless if need be.
Break - Good Habits and Better People
In a past post I mentioned I would try going on faith much more often and focus my energy on singular goals. Minor victories that maintain morale are extremely important. I started with a simple task that would allow me to immediately see results as long as I was consistent. Once that task became something natural I would bring another task into the fold.
For me it was making sure my freezer had ice. A friend of mine suggested I also do 10 push ups a day. I mean what's 10 push ups and filling an ice tray. Whatever the mind makes it, is the correct answer. I could climb Mt. Everest but if I didn't do 10 push ups and fill that ice tray part of me felt like a failure.
As time progressed I found myself trying to complete these task as early as possible. The earlier I felt success, the better I would feel throughout the day.
Soon I was doing 50 push ups in a row and had a shit ton of ice. Which allowed me to add another task.
As I said we are compounds of our days. The next task I added would be weekly goals. Run at least four times and set a cap for my vices. If I were to not run at least four times I would still do push ups and fill the ice tray so morale was never completely lost.
You will see a difference in the people you attract into your life with whatever frequency you're vibrating at. Better habits brought positive people and diminished the effect negative people had on me.
You know who makes you happy
You know who inspires you
You know who brings you down
You know who conspires to
