You decide to make a change OR learn something new Or give up a bad habit, you are totally excited and start with gusto everything is going good you are doing the work making the commitment BUT then…you begin to slack off, you begin to make excuses “I don’t have enough time” “I thought this would be easy” “oh I have other commitments family, work etc” “its just too hard” “there is so much to do” “Im not like you”…
…Sooo YOU QUIT!
and call it Self Sabotaging or tell yourself “Its ok I’ll do it another time” OR “I feel so overwhelmed!” OR “I knew I wouldn’t really do it” OR worse tell yourself “Im just useless!”
COME ON PEOPLE Who ever said it was going to be easy? If you make the decision to change you have to fully commit to the work it will take to bring about these changes…Change Takes Work! YOU will need some serious TOOLS to keep you on track and the beautiful thing is that we can all Learn New Skills… “there is never a bad student, only bad teachers” (Mr Miyagi Karate Kid)
So you Begin to step onto the path…
The Hero’s Journey – YOUR hero’s Journey like every good Fairy OR Epic tale told throughout the ages around the fire pits and later through books and movies…The Hero has to fight many
cross perilous oceans, climb treacherous mountains, be tempted by delectable sirens or serpents
and even endure conflict with Family OR Friends
And that is sometimes within the first few pages or scenes…
frustrations and wishing it was all over…
Haanel 17:12 “The mind may place the ideal a little too high and fall short of it mark; it may attempt to soar on untrained wings and instead of flying, fall to the earth; but that is no reason for not making another attempt”
The realization that you are so close to the final reward that will change your life forever you just have to keep going one step at a time because the Hero made a DECISION to make a difference and we all know the Hero always Wins!
Haanel 17:26 “Your Strength is determined by your mental attitude; if this attitude is one of success and is permanently held with unswerving purpose,you will attract to you from the invisible domains the things you silently demand”
The Moral of the Story
If you are finding that you want to QUIT think again…Haanel 17:22 “If you concentrate on some matter of importance, the intuitive power will be set in operation, and help will come in the nature of information which will LEAD YOU to SUCCESS”
Your mind is very powerful if you want to Eliminate being “Overwhelmed” concentrate on being “In the Flow” Eliminate “Fear” concentrate on Courage. YOU’VE Got This!
Remember Its Your Live so why not “Live Your Dream”
One of my Favorite Hero’s movies is about a Reluctant Hero…EnJoy!
