“Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.”-Anne Frank
Why is it so difficult for us to do what is best for ourselves? Why the resistance for self improvement? Logically, it makes no sense because it is us who will benefit from self improvement, yet we still don’t do anything to help ourselves. What’s even funnier is that we find it easier to help others and we have all the answers in the world to help someone else.
So what gives? Laziness, be it mental or physical, it’s just easier to stay in the same spot than to do something. Besides laziness what gets me, are excuses, they sneak up on me sometimes without even recognizing them for what they are, it’s like they are on autopilot for some reason. I combat this by becoming more aware of my words and actions, once I catch myself I am able to transcend that moment and remake my habits into positive ones.
How else do we overcome our own roadblocks? Action, that’s the magic word. It activates our energy, engages our will, brainpower, and gets us from point A to point B. This helps build our inner light bit by bit until we glow from the inside out, no one can give us this gift other than ourselves because it all comes from within. As it is within, so it is without.
