My beloved daughter,
Most of us are prone to put off for tomorrow what we should be doing right now. However, if we go on doing this, we will end up not achieving much in our life. The hard truth my darling is that:
- If we do not go after what we want, we will never get it.
- If we don’t ask the right questions, we will always get the wrong answers.
- If we don’t take a step forward, we are always going to be standing in the exact place.
Life is a journey comprised of small steps taken in the direction we have charted out. If we have determined the destination, the key is to take the small steps, every single day towards the goal(s).
Sweetheart, we all know that this is the way forward but oftentimes we are lethargic to get moving, maybe because we are stuck in a cycle of worry, fear, and other forms of over-thinking.
Make that move my dear, do not be distracted and do not procrastinate. One step at a time with presence and focus. One precious moment at a time. This ensures that you do not end up wasting your life, as you hang around putting off for tomorrow what you should do today.
Action requires that you discipline yourself to act purposefully and with immediacy. Don’t waste your life by a lack of self-discipline. Self-discipline is a skill. It is the ability to focus and overcome distractions. It involves acting according to what you know is right, instead of how you feel in the moment (perhaps tired or lazy). It oftentimes requires sacrificing immediate comfort zones for what matters most to you in your life.
Most of us lack self-discipline because we lack focus. In other words, we tell ourselves we are going to work on something, but then we don’t. Strive to be mindful about what you want to do and get on with it. Quit the habit of procrastinating for some reason that you are ever-ready to come up with. Stop giving yourself excuses my dear. Make that move right now!
Love you always.
