Too often I find myself thinking about who I want to be, that is, the person with the characteristics I want to have. When you think about it, it's silly. I need to just be the person I believe I am, or have said in the past, that I "want to be."
Sure, there are goals I hope to achieve in the future but.....those are external to this topic.
For example, I've said in the past, even as recent as this morning, that I'd like to be someone who did not eat carelessly throughout the day. The point is, don't look at that as something to be achieved in the future, just take the Nike approach, and "just do it." I don't have to become that person, I can just declare myself as that person. It's me!
Well rah rah, that sounds good, and in the moment it feels right. Still may be difficult to achieve in terms of specific goals. So for this moment, right now, I will just enjoy the positive glow I feel from this frame of mind.
