The world of INSTANT
Wednesday, December 28, 2016
I tell my daughter all the time that her generation is full of "instant" wants and desires. It is like they want to graduate and be instant CEO's and not have to work to get ahead in the ranks of a company. The hard work that needs to be put in, the time that it takes to build up that career is foreign to them.
Then we go to this morning....when I was looking at myself in the mirror. Now I have been working out for two days (today marks my 3rd strait day) and here I was looking in the mirror sucking in my belly and thinking "why do I not see anything yet?" There I was doing these things and I swear I shook my head in disbelief. Disbelief that here I was wanting that "instant" results and I have not put in the time needed, or the hard work yet to give me the results. I was standing there doing all the things I tell my daughter not to do.
While I gave myself a good chuckle....it made me think, Is this another one of my self destructive triggers? Do I really expect that after a few days I will be able to see the differences? I really know better of course, but MAN is that inner voice a strong one! It the evil voice that tells me I'm no good...."oh no loss in two days, no differences so you can go eat a gallon of ice cream!" Well I say F that.....I am not going to get sucked up into the world of instant. I want to put the time and work into ME. I brushed off that inner voice, took a step away from the mirror and finished getting ready for the day.
I pray that if others are struggling with this inner self doubt, or self instruction that you can pull yourself out. You are a work in progress, just like the rest of us. Don't go for the quick fixes because they do not last! Put the time and energy in and the results will come!
