Sometimes you just gotta know when you have to look at yourself and say “You have to want it as bad as you want to breath.”
Eric the Hip Hop Preacher said this in a video I watched a while ago. Yesterday I watched a video that audio clips of great statements for motivation and this was in it. It made me stop and think. I always say I want to do something, and I start, hit a wall and stop. I think this happens at least once a month. I actually thought about this same quote again this morning. I had been setting my alarm for 4:00 am and getting up to start my day right. I was trying to not rush my day and give myself a couple extra hours of productive time. I did it for two days, slept in one, then back at it. This week was 4:30, 5, and other times. I got up this morning, looked at the clock that said 4:40, got discouraged for a moment and then heard the quote in my head.
It is my own fault. I got mad at my husband for pointing out that I did it two days, and then made the statement that I “always” get up that early. Okay, so maybe I was trying to make me feel good about those two days that I would continue doing it and he made me feel like I failed already (which I had)….or maybe I just got irritated that he pointed out I really didn’t want it.
I still am thinking it was part both.
It took a couple times of hearing that same phrase for me to really connect with it. I need to sit and think about the goals and ideas I have in my head. Do I r
eally want them? I mean, do I really want them? If so, I have to realize that I am 35 now and I have to make myself accountable to the things I want to do. Everyone has excuses. It is those of us who riseabove and make them happen that will actually succeed.
I want to be one of those people who succeeds.
What about you?by
