It’s currently on day seven of my write a post a day self-challenge and I’m a bit too tired to think of a topic to write about.
Which just means that I have to keep working at it to be able to be the kind of person who can make ideas seem out of nowhere.
The thing about creating habits is you first have to force it a little.
It needs to start with you still doing those ten push ups a day because you want to make it a habit.
It needs to start with you still getting up at six in the morning because you want to make it a habit.
It needs to start with you still trying to control your hunger and do an eighteen hour fast because you want to make it a habit.
It needs to start with you still creating a post even though you’re too tired to even edit it afterward because you want to make it a habit.
It can get frustrating, tiring and often lazy to follow through when we’re just starting to create a habit.
But then you know it’s going to pay off. You know that one of these days you’ll just do them automatically that you don’t have to put a reminder on your journal to do it.
And until that day comes you have to persevere, to keep on going.
Because at the end of the day the person you’re helping the most is yourself.
So when you’re creating a habit for yourself, make sure you don’t give up when you’re halfway through.
If you do, it’ll be one of the promises you made to yourself but never really embodied.
