Motivation or Courage?
Monday, April 15, 2013
"You can't start reading the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one."
"Don't expect a change if you don't make one."
Our blog challenge was to write about something that motivates us to resist temptation. The problem I have with this assignment is that I don't resist. Last week we had cookies in our office from one of the best bakeries in town. The woman sitting by me turned it down because she too is trying to lose weight. All I could think about was her willpower as I was eating my cookie.
So is it motivation I need or the courage to actually make a change? Am I willing to put in the work that it is going to take? Is my life dictated by temptations or my reaction to them?
It is time to commit an act of courage.
