Staying On Track to Get What You Want!
Why do we hold ourselves back, set ourselves up for failure and derail ourselves right off the tracks from the starting gate?
I have been taught to try something to see if I like it or not! I do not attempt things if I am not interested at all. I do not want to waste my time and energy. I want to get on to doing something I do want to do!
I do not set priorities or commit fully! I will start something until I can decide what I really want. I have experienced quite a bit of stops and starts and on to the next things. I cannot commit fully when my heart is not in it and it is something I do not truly want!
I make excuses so I do not have to hold myself accountable for not succeeding! I cannot believe I just thought that and wrote it. Ding, ding, ding! I need to set my mindset to a more positive, proactive and productive setting. I know I need to take the time to decide what I want as well as why I want it! Otherwise the excuses, negative talk and procrastination cycle continues on.
Going With the Flow
When I hear the saying “Keep your eyes on the prize!” I think about gambling with that gum ball machine in the hopes my 25 cents would get me the color I really, really wanted! I would either get excited or disappointed, but I would always chew the piece of gum I received. I was determined to enjoy it and take pleasure it in and not feel like I just wasted 25 cents. There is a little irony and a little meaning to take from that memory!
Life is one Big “Twist & Turn” that requires that you get out the map every once in a while to see if you are still on track and heading in the right direction!
Staying On the Trail
Do not become distracted though and focus on what you want and where you want to go! I am determined to continue the good fight and continue moving forward. I will try really hard to watch out for those obstacles and hurdles as well as those mistakes, setbacks and failures. I will try really hard to not make excuses and watch my words, like could to can and would to will. I am capable of doing anything and everything if I just get out of my own way and out of my own crazy mind!
I remind myself every day to get moving and take action to get closer to what I want in living my life!
