I made a commitment to myself that I would publish a new piece of content every day from my 30th birthday until (at least) my 31st.
365 opportunities to sharpen my writing and ability to produce.
A significant commitment, no doubt. And one that I have full intentions of keeping. I believe it will open doors for me I can’t even imagine yet.
But then I run into days like today.
Days when I don’t want to write.
Days when I don’t want to produce.
Days when I don’t feel like I have anything to say.
And these are the days that matter the most.
Because each time I remain committed in the face of my own resistance, I become more formidable in the process. I become more accustomed to powering through my own procrastination — and therefore limit the amount of influence any thought of procrastination can have over me.
The more I say “yes” when the little voice is my heading is pleading “no,” the more control I ultimately gain over my own domain. Control which I can then use to accomplish my own goals and objectives.
And the same goes for you, as well.
When you make a commitment, keep it.
When you tell yourself you’re going to do something, do it.
Show up, even when you don’t want to.
Because it’s in these moments that you learn what you’re actually capable of.
It’s in these moments that you start to actualize your own potential.
When you just don’t feel like it, do it anyway.
This is where it counts the most.
And when you’re ready 👇👇
