You think it doesn’t matter.You think other people are more important to you.You don’t believe that what you do will make a difference.You haven’t prioritized properly.You aren’t training your thoughts and thinking about what you think about.You are obsessed about the “how” instead of being committed to the “what”You are distracted and throwing hours of your time away watching other peoples’ lives.You haven’t worked your belief deeply enough.You aren’t proactively practicing self-trust. You punish yourself for what you’re not doing instead of taking note of what you are doing.You are hyper-focused on the finish line.You aren’t willing to be bored.You are cycling in compare and despair.You haven’t established solid life routines to set yourself up for success. You are putting too much pressure on yourself and have to-do guilt.You chase perfection instead of progression.You’re too focused on what people think about you.

Tiny Habits: Small Change that Change Everything, by BJ Fogg https://amzn.to/35asCiy

To-Do Guilt:

To reduce guilt and overwhelm, we have to decide what it is that we care about. If you stretch yourself too thin, then you are too thinly caring about too many things. Exhaustion results. The trick is to figure out what you care about and what will help you feel like you’re moving forward, not being busy. How do we do this? By identifying 2-3 things daily – either in work or in what you do in your home – that feels satisfying. 



Focus on tiny habits.Really know why you want to change.Believe that change is possible.Get ready to embrace boredom.Think of yourself as your future self-concept.Put a line in the sand for who you used to be with follow through.Get a coach.Surround yourself with other committed people.Take responsibility for your results and happiness.Get serious about how you think.Use powerful affirmations.Speak life over yousrself  Bonus Resources for Affirmations:YouTube Video: https://youtu.be/HdFAdZh6NckPodcast Episode: https://www.trishblackwell.com/423-2/Downloadable PDF and MP3: https://trishblackwell.lpages.co/christian-meditations/ We have a new course soon releasing the College of Confidence on how to customize and curate powerful affirmations on your own.
