There are days when you don’t feel like showing up. I totally get it. It would be so much easier to pack in the towel and chill on the couch with a good book, and a cup of cacao. .
But it’s in the days of not wanting to, yet doing it anyways, that you start to build resilience and strength. That your character-building isnt built in the days when it all feels good and goes according to plan, but in the days that you couldn’t be bothered and everything is going awry.
you strap on a pair, and do the work regardless of the thoughts circulating in your head.
Is today going to be one the days that you sit and procrastinate? Or is today going to be a day that you get up and #getshitdone ?
When your head hits the pillow tonight, will you pat yourself on the back, or hang low in disappointment because you allowed yourself to be distracted with FaceBOOK and Instagram?
Will you find excuses and reasons that your brain deems ‘relevant’ to not go ahead with the difficult or challenging tasks? Or will you choose to think thoughts that elevate and surprise you, building your self-confidence and self-love muscle more than you intended?
* I’m choosing the latter today. even though I am the one who would rather be curled up on the couch. I’m choosing to, as Mark Twain would say ‘eat my frogs’ first up. To do the things that I dislike. To make decisions that will serve my week, and catapult me to new highs. By the end of today, I’ll feel accomplished and satisfied with the work I’ve invested into my business and my life. .
Can you say the same?
What frogs are you eating today? Comment below and share your commitment to yourself. I’m finalising my tax and finances. 🙌🏽
PS - What does this ‘eating frogs’ thing mean? 👉🏼 The frog is that one thing you have on your to-do list that you have absolutely no motivation to do and that you’re most likely to procrastinate on. Eating the frog means to just do it, otherwise the frog will eat you meaning that you’ll end up procrastinating it the whole day.
Once that one task is done, the rest of the day will be an easier ride and you will get both momentum and a sense of accomplishment at the beginning of your day.
