How To Stop Waiting Until Tomorrow

 

Quote Lauren

Why is it that we have things that we *SAY* we want to do, and then we just don’t do them?
How many times have you said you were going to change, show up differently, start a new program of some kind, and then it just NEVER HAPPENS?
Why is it that we tell ourselves that we really want something and then we don’t actually follow through on it— even when it is something that we desire?
Let’s explore that shall we…
The first reason is that it is actually something that would further our growth and any kind of undertaking that has to do with the personal development of any kind, is usually HARD.  Obviously, right?!
There is SO much resistance that comes up to block those things that are worthy of improving our life.
Everything that is within you that despises a challenge, doesn’t want to change and wants to stay comfortable comes up and tries to convince you that you don’t really want it, or that you should just start tomorrow.
That’s the most popular one, and sneaky approach, isn’t it?  The thought that ‘oh, I’ll just start tomorrow.’
But tomorrow never comes.
So many people will live their entire lives in this place of just dreaming and wishing and wondering what it would be like to live their dream life— then do EVERYTHING they can to believe that they are going to start tomorrow
Or that something magical will happen and they will just WANT to do that thing, and it will come naturally and magically and be so fucking easy.
Well, I’ve got news for you— it DOESN’T.
Change is NOT easy.
It’s fucking hard.
Even if you want it.
Even if it’s something that will dramatically improve your life and health and career situation, or whatever it is, for the better.
You will NOT want to do it.
You will want to put it off until tomorrow.
But the truth is that tomorrow never comes.  This is DREAM SUICIDE— where we literally just keep killing our dreams.
There’s nothing out there that is going to change for you to WANT to do this thing.
The only reason that it will change is because of YOU— and this is the second reason why we don’t do what we say we want to do.  And that is, that you don’t actually make a commitment.
Things change drastically when you actually MAKE A COMMITMENT to what you want to do and what you want to change about your life.
Committing to something is really important because then you are saying to yourself— OKAY I literally am going to do this.
And we are all different when it comes to making a commitment.  Some of us need social support and we like to tell people, or like to post on FB what we’re doing, but that shit is not for me.
Me?
I like to make an INTERNAL COMMITMENT.  This is the only really big way that I have changed my life in a huge way— and can create massive long term permanent changes in your life— and this is to COMMIT TO ONLY YOURSELF.
Commit to yourself that you are going to do this, no matter what.
Commit to yourself that the only person that you are hurting by NOT doing this, is YOU.
You are the only thing that matters.
It doesn’t matter if someone else knows about your commitment at the end of the day.  They don’t have to be inside your head or sleep with you at night.  You do.
SO when you make these external commitments it doesn’t create the internal landscape that you need — because what if those people go away?  What if they doubt you and you believe it?  I certainly don’t want to give away my power to someone else with my commitments.
I make my commitments internally and privately.  I make sure that what I am committing to actually matters, and that it is exactly what I want.
That doesn’t mean I don’t tell other people about it.
It just means that I have to go inside first and really discover what it is that is right for me.
And that’s the third reason why people don’t actually show up and do what they say they are going to do.
Because they are only saying that they want to do a certain thing because they SHOULD.
Because someone told them they should.
Or they just think its a good idea.
Neither are going to be powerful drivers for changing and transforming your life!
If you really want to commit to something and improve your life, your health, wealth and well-being— it has to be FOR YOU and come from WITHIN.
It requires you to really dig deep and ask yourself— what is it that you actually want?  What is it that would feel good to your SOUL?  What do you want the outcome to be, what are you aligning to in your future?  
And the biggest question of all—
ARE YOU WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET THERE?
This is by far the most important question to ask yourself!!  And the most overlooked.  Most people can say that they want to become RICH and FAMOUS, they want to have the body of their DREAMS, perfect HEALTH and wellness, perfect EPIC relationships, and the truth is… that they aren’t actually WILLING to do what it takes.
Sure, it sounds good.  Everyone wants these things on a deeper level.  I mean, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want these things?  Because if you go one layer deeper, what it really means to people is that by having these things and achieving these things in life, on a deeper level what they believe is that by having these things, they will finally BE HAPPY.
Achieving these things cannot create happiness out of thin air, we definitely need to source our happiness from within and know what it takes to be happy in our life to create it.  But not having these things can create problems.  Being out of shape and in bad health sucks.  Being poor and broke sucks.  Not having people around you to support and love you through life really doesn’t feel good.
But attaining these things is a difficult undertaking.
It takes challenging yourself to go beyond your limits, do actually DO what you say you’re going to do, to SHOW UP for yourself, and to stay COMMITTED long after the desire to change goes away.
Staying committed to the path means that you STAY even when you want to QUIT.
You keep taking action, you keep showing up no matter what.
At that point, it doesn’t matter how you FEEL about it, when you’re gone all in and fully committed to making that change in your life.
I know that the only way I’ve gotten to where I am now has been just by staying committed to the OUTCOME of what I am wanting to create.
And there’s one thing I want you to remember that will make a big difference— and that is, to simply ENJOY the journey.  Enjoy the ride and EMBRACE the struggle.
The struggle is real!  I know it is, and so many people think that they shouldn’t struggle, and if they are struggling, that means it’s not aligned, or not a goal for them and that is simply not true.  When you come up against resistance and you start going after a goal in your life that is something you really really want, it is going to be difficult, hard, scary and you will have a ton of resistance.
Expect it, and know that it is going to happen.  And take action anyways.
That is the key to long-lasting change.  That is the key to really doing what it is you say you’re going to do.
So what is that thing that you keep saying you are going to do but you’re not?
What is that thing you keep putting off until tomorrow?
It’s time for you to stop putting off your dreams and start LIVING!!
Wake the fuck up to the reality that tomorrow is never going to come!
Key points to remember–
  • If you want ANYTHING to change, you have to do it NOW.  Today.  Right now.
  • Get honest with yourself about what it is that you are wanting to commit to.
  • Expect that resistance will show up.  This will not be easy!  But know that the struggle is essential and required along the journey of growth.  It will challenge you, and this is what life is all about.
  • Learn to love the pain and enjoy the rain, for this is what brings the rainbow, the joy and the beauty on the other side.
  • And lastly, believe in yourself and that you can have, do and be ANYTHING you want.
You are a powerful being and you have the power to write an entirely new story for yourself, starting now.
What you are waiting for?
Your future starts NOW.
In light + love,
