2020-resolutions

You know why you are so far from where you want to be?

Because you think too small...and act even smaller.

...you do now

...and you always have.

We just passed New Years, when everyone sets the goals that they never achieve to feel good about themselves for the first 2.5 days of the year.

You know why we never achieve these goals?

I do.

The answer is simple.

As simple as the answer was it took me till I was 35 years old to figure it out.

...but I did.

What I found was:

I was full of shit.

Completely.

I'd make these heart felt promises to myself that I truly in my soul thought I meant.

...but I didn’t.

...and the results of my life were an obviously painful reminder of that.

Everywhere I looked I was dissatisfied.

I was fat.

My relationship was terrible.

I was broke.

For the longest time I would secretly wonder why it seemed so easy for other people but so hard for me.

The truth is it wasn’t hard for me, I just wasn’t following through.

I was lying to myself about how much effort I was actually putting in and the worst part is...I believed it.

When I fully accepted this as truth.

Things changed.

Everything changed.

EVERYTHING.

Immediately.

The truth is, you inherently know exactly why you aren’t where you want to be.

You feel it in your heart.

And you’re correct.

You aren’t doing the work...

If you are...you aren’t doing it to the level you know you should be.

You already know this.

...but you spend every waking moment open to and secretly seeking a faster/easier way and THIS is what keeps you spinning your wheels.

So, this year...make a resolution.

Make this resolution:

Don't be full of shit.

Especially to yourself.

If you’re presented with a choice of two options: pick the harder path.

Everything else will fall into place.
