Ever wondered why it’s hard to get shit done?
We talk about new year being the ‘new me’ but in fact the majority of us will give up at some point.
Why do we give up or not try to improve our life? Acceptance is something that can only be used as an excuse if there is literally nothing you can do.
If your not happy with your career and lifestyle then why torture yourself until retirement?
Why do we compare ourselves to others?
Were usually envious of successful people and for a split second the positive vibes come in and you feel motivated. Our motivation soon fades away and that dream is over, maybe before you even start taking action.
Before I get into my point of why that happens, let me explain what the negatives and positives are of us comparing ourselves to others.
- Motivation is born, motivation is a good thing and you want to make it last as long as you can. Long enough for you to make moves to achieve your goals. After that it is pretty much consistency until the motivation is born again through getting results.
- It is genuinely a wake up call for most of us. We remain content with our lifestyle and don’t realise the damages it is actually causing. This will push you to want change.
- Demotivated to even do anything about it. As if you weren’t demotivated enough already! Were clueless on how to even start because that successful person has it all.
- When your constantly telling yourself that you can’t do something, it creates doubt and you begin to think that it is impossible.
Now back to my point earlier on why our motivation fades away. It is of human nature to not be in the mood for something and you eventually stop doing it.
But I think it’s a lot deeper than just just not being in the mood. This is more to do with getting out of our comfort zone.
To many this seems dangerous and people fear change because you don’t want to fail.
We’ve all come across new challenges in the past and that eventually became apart of our daily routine. Take your job as an example. It is now apart of your comfort zone.
So we know that new challenges are manageable, what makes achieving success any different?
You paint an extreme picture to make it seem scary but it really is a matter of trial and error.
I’ve mentioned before that life in general is about trial and error, so it’s not something that you are not used too.
Start your first chapter
Start your first chapter and begin working towards success. There is no need to compare yourself to a person that is well ahead. Just think of it this way they were once in your position and they stuck to it.
Every chapter comes to an end and if you keep working to achieve your goals, chapter 2 is just around the corner!
I know it has been a shitty 2020 but start your first chapter of 2021 with a bang and soon your old lifestyle will be of a distant memory.
Speak to you soon guys,
