Today I sabotaged myself and disguised it by being a good father...
I took a hard look at how my week went and then got frustrated. Not because I am not doing the work. Not because I am not growing. Just because I am not where I want to be yet and it didn't happen in one day.
DO YOU EVER GET IMPATIENT WITH YOUR OWN PERSONAL GROWTH?
What I did was get myself doing something that I KNEW I was good at and could get immediate results. Being a father to such beautiful kids every day is easy for me. I just make sure that I am present as often as I can. Usually I have to get my kids out of the house to do that because when I am home it's easier to get distracted with feeling like I have work to do.
THE LESSON: WHEN I FEEL LIKE I AM STRUGGLING I STOP PUSHING THROUGH (even for a minute) AND SETTLE ON SOMETHING I KNOW I AM GOOD AT (even if it doesn't move me forward).
If you have ever felt like this then I want to suggest an amazing book. The truth is that listening to books helps me change my mind about things that aren't working. This is why I read so much and have such a powerful knowledge of me and what works.
THE POWER HABITS... by Noah St. John changed so much in my life.
In this book...I learned a TON but the thing that stood out the most for me was his version of affirmations he calls... aFORMations. So much better than looking into a mirror and telling yourself a bunch of lies that you are having to force yourself to believe.
