Sometimes when we can’t seem to achieve our goals, even with the best of intentions, it’s easy to feel like a complete failure. It can feel like we lack discipline and to be honest, it probably appears that way, but I’ve learned it’s not that I lack discipline in general. I’ve found that I lack discipline for things that aren’t truly a priority, don’t enrich life for me or those around me, and I try to force myself to believe in it’s benefit hoping it’ll launch me on the fast track to success. But, I can’t fool myself.
No. Deep down, we know our true wants and the genuine purpose of what we’re meant to do in this lifetime. No amount of “wanting”, “faking”, or ‘impersonating” will give us the desirable results we think will make life better. Our soul is no fraud. It’s faithful to what advances our personal development. It demands sincerity paid forth before it sets in motion all the sweet and wonderful skills and abilities that can and will guide us to success.
When our truth is aligned with our goals, miraculous people and events rush-in to our aide.
The truth is we’re not a failure by not succeeding in something which truly isn’t valuable to us. The failure has already happened before we’ve even begun. The failure is in our perception of what we “think” will make our life more satisfactory, more content.
If you’re struggling with discipline in reaching goals you’ve set for yourself, stop beating yourself up and take some time to be 100% certain that this goal is what you want most. Ask yourself “Why?” you want it, then ask “Why?” for that answer. Keep repeating asking yourself “Why?” until you’ve exhausted the “Why?” and you’ll know, bone deep, whether this goal is worth pursuing or not.
Discipline springs from our true wants. If it is genuinely good for us, we’ll be compelled to do whatever’s necessary to reach our goal.
I promise when you’ve drilled down to the essence of “why” you want to do something, you’ve given yourself a dozen solid reasons “why” you need to be disciplined to reach your goal…and you will. ❤
Keep it Simple,
