The top two most important changes I need to make in my life are………………………………………….
Having discipline and consistency.
These two traits go hand in hand as I can’t see myself having one and not the other. And yes, I am dedicating this whole post to those two traits, because I need this reminder to keep me focused.
Sometimes I lose track of what I’m trying to accomplish. I have set backs along the way, take hiatuses (like the 3 month one I took on this blog, smh) and lose sight of my end goal. And sometimes the only way for me to get back on track is to be my own coach, my own motivator.
You see, I almost didn’t write Day 5’s post because I ran out of time yesterday. I was going to skip to Day 6, because I was so sure my 3-5 consistent readers (if that lol) would notice. But I realized, it’s not about y’all noticing, I’ll notice. And I wouldn’t be okay with that. I wouldn’t be okay with disappointing myself. I committed to 1 post a day, so I need to deliver. Discipline and consistency.
Though there are a lot of things I want to make changes on in my life. Discipline and consistency are the two most important. And one of my problems is that sometimes I will convince myself to wait for the right time to make these changes. I’ve always been the type to have New Year’s resolutions. But the fact of the matter is, why wait until January 1st to do something I can do now? If I wait for the “right moment” to improve myself, I’ll never do it. There will be more excuses, more hiatuses, and more starting over. But if I am disciplined enough to be consistent, I’ll never need another start date again.
Sorry if I bored y’all with this post. I just know myself well enough to know that at times I need to make public announcements just to make sure I hold myself accountable. This is one of them.
