It’s human nature…
‘What is Kristen?’
I’ll tell you…
We spend more time justifying why we haven’t done something than it would take us to actually do the thing we haven’t done.
When it comes to attracting money or finding our purpose or taking steps toward the life we desire, we to procrastinate.
Why is it so easy to say things like, “I’ll do it tomorrow?” and then wake up tomorrow feeling terrible because we let another day go by without doing whatever it was?
We do this with little things and big…and either way the message is the same…when we let another day go by without doing something…big or small…the message we send to ourselves is, “I SUCK!”
Vice Versa when we do actually take action on something proactive…big or small…the message is also the same, “I ROCK!”
So what gives?
First of all…I am going to stand up and say that I think most of us have quite a few things on our ‘Lists’ that we keep putting off because quite simply they don’t really need to be done.
I know crazy thought right!?
I realized this the other day as I was changing the date for when yet another task was due in my Outlook Calendar…I realized that I had been changing the date on that specific action item for over a year.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Over a year??!! So I asked myself one simple question…
‘Will doing this move my life forward or make me any happier or better off than I am right now?’
I was met with a resounding, ‘NO!’
And so I did the most amazing thing…
I deleted it…and felt like 5 lbs lift off me.
So, I tried it with the next thing that popped up as a ‘To Do Reminder’…I asked myself, ‘Will doing this move my life forward or make me any happier or better off than I am right now?’ and this time the answer was ‘Yes!’
UGH…it was a yes…and it was going to push my comfort zone…but it was a yes and now that I knew it was a yes if I didn’t take action I would really send myself the ‘I suck’ message…so…I gritted my teeth and did it…
It took 5 minutes…
And when I was done (it was a phone call) there was no doubt in my mind that ‘I ROCK!’
So that’s my new thing…with everything…I ask myself some form of this question:
Will doing this move my life forward or make me any happier or better off than I am right now?
This works with attracting money, discovering your purpose, making plans, possible opportunities, who you spend time with, how you spend your time, what clothes you wear…EVERYTHING
