OK let me start out with a confession……….I’ve been this person!! I get really excited and start something new and then move on OUT OF PURE BOREDOM. Like the time I purchased house plants and committed to keeping them alive this time or the time I purchased a sewing machine and yaaarrddss of fabric with the intent of designing my OWN FASHIONS………until I quit. But wait this idea was going to be the one that was going to take ME places and create a new way of being. I believe that each desire was workable however I JUST DIDN’T WORK IT………..I DIDN’T FINISH WHAT I STARTED.
Was I really bored or did I simple have a LACK OF VISION? or maybe, a LACK OF COMMITMENT? or Did I LACK A DEFINING WHY? WAS I SCARED? DID IT BECOME SO REAL that abandonment was the only option to silence the desire and the critics……. so I thought (because now they’ll talk about you being foolishness enough to think you could DO/BE SOMETHING). The truth is it’ll be the BEGINNING OF THE LOUDEST VOICE YOU’LL HEAR………..REGRET.
The belief in NEW things can be so exciting, until they aren’t new anymore or until you allow someone to talk you out of SOMETHING you know you are suppose to be doing. You’ve done all the research, you know this topic like you know how to breathe…………but you won’t push yourself to FINISH. You think about it all the time, you have began different versions of things related to it, BUT YOU JUST WON’T FINISH ONE OF THE MANY IDEAS. You become JUDGMENTAL of anyone who does what you do and has A LEVEL OF SUCCESS. You critique what they do AND You are TRULY annoyed with people who are not doing it right (in your opinion) and lastly lets be HONEST, you may be able to do it BETTER…….but you won’t move. ………..but you WON’T BEGIN AND FINISH!
What we fail to realize is that there will be so much FULFILLMENT in the FINISH. The negative things we fantasized about, while trying to finish will all prove to be a lie. The things we feared will all seem small. Most of the hurdles make perfect sense. AND you’ll have so much RESPECT FOR THE PROCESS
NOW the questions going we have going forward are different because we stuck to the one thing and got it done. NOW THE DOOR IS WIDE OPEN TO WHAT’S NEXT! YOUR WALK is more confident and YOUR conversations are different. The BEAUTIFUL thing about finishing is, you’ll always have a reference point when you are tempted to quit. You’ll be familiar with the JOY OF SUCCESS and the pain of sticking with it.
CHOOSE TODAY to stop justifying the quit. Don’t abandon your DREAMS. The WORLD NEEDS EVERYTHING YOU HAVE TO GIVE. GO BACK AND GET THE THING YOU QUIT ON AND FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED………………………………………
*Self Talk – Look at your project and SAY: I Can’t Stop, I Won’t Stop, I MUST FINISH!!
*Action – Do something EVERYDAY that will move you closer to finishing.
