When you start to slack off…

When you realize you’re starting to slack off by saying “Fuck that! I’ll do it later”, remember that nothing is going to change. You’ll lag every time you waste those hours. The more time you waste, the more steps you miss and the more you fall behind. You might not realize this right now since your progress isn’t quantifiable but you’ll have to bear the consequences.

Instant gratification feels good for that instant but when the day is gone, you’ll be left with feelings of guilt, regret and a sense of dissatisfaction. You don’t want to feel like you could’ve, should’ve, would’ve done something when the time was right. Think about your goal. I bet it’s so much magnificent, pleasurable and satisfying than the instant gratification. If you don’t get serious now, nothing will change.

Think about all the reasons you’re doing all this. How much do you want it? Can you kill for it? If you can, surely you can work for it. Isn’t that right? So, don’t ever lose your focus. It’s alright to get side-tracked once in a while but never forget the big picture. You’ve got a lot of things in life to look forward to. If you cross this step, you’ll be able to pursue those things. You want that very badly.

You don’t want to end up like one of those people who fail, cry and make excuses. You have places to go, things to do, people to meet. You’re going to have a very happy, fulfilling, abundant life with you doing the things you love while earning enough to keep you sustained. So what are you waiting for? If anyone can do it, it’s you. When you feel like slacking off, remember: success is your only option, failure’s not!
