Motivation for the Motivator

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

I've been blessed to have friends who tell me that I am an inspiration to them. Lately, though, I am feeling like I can't seem to get off the dime and keep the scale moving. I know why... I have a bad case of the "if onlys". If only I could.... fill in the blank.... then - then I could really get crackin'. Well - what's stopping me? ME! I am in control of my own destiny - nobody else. I am the only person who is looking out for my needs. I'm in charge. So what's the problem? I think the single biggest obstacle in all of this is my ability to stop worrying about what MIGHT happen, and make SOMETHING happen. Anything. Not sure if this qualifies as analysis paralysis, lack of faith, lack of self-confidence, or just what - but I've got to get out there and get it done. I've been examining my 'passions'. Those things that truly get me excited. The cold hard truth is that I feel like I have absolutely nothing to look forward to. Nothing. So until I set my sights on a goal - I'm afraid I will continue to spin my wheels. I can't worry about setting a "good" goal - I just have to set SOME kind of goal. Now, I guess I'll have to figure out what that is going to be, and then get back in the game.

    Every time I start to get close to my goal, I panic and do exactly what you said. This time I'm determined not to do that. I'm just taking it a meal at a time, a workout at a time and a day at a time. And I refuse to give myself permission to mess up!

    Good luck to you.
