What the f***?! Why don't think you deserve that raise as much as the next guy? Why does one day of wings have to derail an entire week of progress? Says whom?
|Me, looking for my goals, longingly|
Why do these constructs even exist? And is it the fear of failure that really gets to us, or fear of success?
What I mean is, are you scared that you're not actually going to lose the weight (or gain muscle, or run a marathon, or whatever your goal is), or are you scared that once you do lose the weight, it won't be as amazing and magical as you expected, and it won't fill that void in your soul? This blog isn't about the WHY behind your goals though, it's about how you need to just cut the shit, and stop getting in your own way.
If you're a self-handicapper, STOP. You DO deserve everything you want, and you can get it by working hard.
If you're a task discounter, STOP. Your goals are important, and hold meaning/value. So there's no reason to diminish them.
