Sometimes all the signs can be pointing in one direction and yet we still choose to continue moving in the direction we know we shouldn’t be.
Why? Because it’s comfortable. It’s routine. It’s predictable.
But just because it’s all of the above, doesn’t mean it’s what’s best for us.
We stick to things we know we really shouldn’t, because at some point in time they did help us.
They helped us get through something difficult, something that cause more stress and anxiety than knowing that what we were doing to cope wasn’t the bet option.
They brought a sense of security, maybe even instant gratification.
And in those moments, we felt okay.
Until we weren’t.
And the cycle continues.
Whether these “things” are thoughts, actions, behaviors, goals, etc. if even just a slight part of you feels some form of guilt, listen.
Your gut is ALWAYS right.
Too many times I’ve said, I should have trusted my gut.
That uneasy feeling? It’s telling you something!
If you’re not moving in the direction you want to be, or you feel stuck, look at the actions you take every day and the mindset you carry with you.
Take a look inside yourself.
Are you practicing what you preach?
Are you doing everything you can to achieve your goals and to be the best you?
Or are you trying to beat around the bush and take shortcuts to get there?
NEWSFLASH: there’s no easy way out.
The things we want the most will take the most effort and change to get them.
CHANGE IS A CHALLENGE. But it’s worth it in the end.
I’d be lying if I said it’d be easy, but this is where you have to ask yourself: is your want for the end result greater than the instant gratification you get from what’s holding you back?
And if it is, you’ll be willing to take those risks and get uncomfortable.
