That wasn’t so hard, was it?

Even at the age of 31, I’m amazed how often I say these words to myself. Isn’t it amazing that after all this time, you still find a way to talk yourself out of the littlest things that when put together, become the biggest things?

Being able to get past these seemingly little tasks must make you feel like a million dollars. It helps to know that it’s the resistance that’s talking you out of this stuff, not you personally, and that the resistance, however tough, can be ignored successfully.

Set a calendar date and time or some sort of deadline. Always. Force yourself to do these things because sometimes, there simply is no other way. And remind yourself, by the time you’re done, you’ll probably say to yourself ‘that wasn’t so hard, was it?’

What seemingly little tasks are you forgoing at the current moment?
