Wishful Thinking

I tell myself I want to build my online course and will commit 2 hours a day on writing the content.

I tell myself I want to improve the communications with my teenage son.

I tell myself I want to eat better.

And yet I found me slouching on the bed scrolling on my phone when I am supposed to write. Or once a again, raised my voice and snap at my son. And then feel bad and went to the kitchen and opened a bag of chips.

๐ŸŽฏ I believe we all have good intentions. We even set our intentions. But then we found ourselves going through days of responding, reacting, or not doing what we meant to do.

๐ŸŽฏ Having good intention is not enough. We need to ACT. And we need to set up GUARDRAILS.

๐ŸŽฏ When the standards have been set, the work is to EXAMINE and UPHOLD the standard, and to, USE THEM, and NOT TO COMPROMISE.

Easier said than done right?

I need to consistently catch myself and one powerful way is to ASK QUESTIONS.

I use mantras and questions to remind/ask myself whenever I found myself โ€œsinkingโ€ into old habits.

Itโ€™s like a SAFETY RING, helping me WAKE UP quickly and realign myself to what I should do.

Every time you found yourself slipping, or reacting, catch yourself fast by asking questions.

As much as we speak about goals, the more important thing is the process, meaning you need to catch yourself at the moment and do the right thing.

โ€œI want to ______________โ€ is just thinking. I WILL _______________โ€ is action.

Tell yourself :

๐™„ ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก ๐™™๐™ค ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ง๐™ž๐™œ๐™๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ, ๐™ง๐™ž๐™œ๐™๐™ฉ ๐™ฃ๐™ค๐™ฌ.

Question for you:

๐™’๐™๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™ž๐™› ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ฅ๐™ฅ๐™š๐™™ ๐™ฉ๐™ง๐™ฎ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™๐™ƒ๐™„๐™‰๐™† ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™ฌ๐™–๐™ฎ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ง๐™ค๐™ช๐™œ๐™ ๐™—๐™ช๐™ฉ ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ง๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐˜ผ๐˜พ๐™ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™ฌ๐™–๐™ฎ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ค๐™ช๐™œ๐™?

Share your thoughts with me. If it helps. Jot those reminder questions down.
