Why Can’t I?

Sometimes all you want to do is bang that snooze alarm so that it never goes off again. But, you can’t.

Sometimes you want to shop and shop and shop and not worry about how much things cost. But, you don’t.

Sometimes you wish you could go out and party and pretend you’re not married, have kids, and have a job. But, you won’t.  

Just as you have to follow through with certain obligations in life whether you feel like it or not, the same can be true on goals you are trying to reach. Some days you may feel like quitting and chucking your whole idea out the window, but those can simply be feelings, not what you should actually do.

The best thing to do is keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep taking one step at a time on whatever it is you want to accomplish. Instinct can be misled by feelings. Keep doing until you definitely know the answer of whether you should keep following one step at a time.

Don’t rely on your feelings. Feelings can be fickle.

(Do you ever have the feeling to just give up? What do you do? Please leave a comment and tell us.)

    I am a major multi-tasker and not usually a procrastinator. Normally I write myself little notes and don’t stop til every one of them is done!

    • I wish I’d have always been like that. I had to teach myself to overcome procrastination. Plus, a major part of procrastination was my fear of failure. But, I had to talk with myself on that, too. I talk with myself a lot! THANKS for the tip.
