YOU vs YOU December 30, 2019 05:00
You. It will always be YOU vs YOU. Most of you won't be successful, not because you can't do it, but because you can't outlast your old you long enough to get to the new YOU. Every day you get to choose where your time goes. You can either spend it moving forward, or you can spend it doubting yourself. YOU DECIDE.
"Only you can hold yourself back…only you can help yourself. "
You want to make progress. You want to take a chance. You want to make a change. You have big plans to look better, feel better and find purpose in your life. You’ve set goals for how you can lose a few pounds by running a little further and eating more real food.
But, the devil on your shoulder has different plans. Every time you decide to take action there’s a voice in your head that thinks up an excuse. While you lace up your running shoes, that voice asks; “what’s on TV?” And, even though you know it’s a bad idea, tonight you’ll eat out for the third time this week.
If you want to set the real you free from the pessimistic voice in your head, you’ll have to do more than devise a battle plan. There’s more to it than setting goals. The secret is action – are you willing to act or not? It’s not enough to just want something, or plan for it, or even to do it some of the time. If you want to defeat the natural tendency to choose the path of least resistance, you MUST make action a habit; today, tomorrow and every day after that.
