Do you use the phrase: ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’ often? But somehow it’s never gets done. What causes to make promises and don’t keep them?
The explanations could pile up, but that’s not important. For me, it means that something was not important enough for you to find the time.
Does it matter?
Yes, it does. Getting the awareness that my actions don’t reflect my current beliefs about the subject is crucial for two main reasons. Firstly, to realise that I have other underlying thoughts/ beliefs about the situation and secondly, I am not honest about it with myself and people around me.
Once you release what your current position is, you could choose again. Where do you wish to head to with the situation? By continuing with the present approach, delaying actions and not addressing a problem/ a habit allows getting it more significant. You can change it NOW.
Being aware of the options of choice allows you to have a conscious contribution to decide about your future outcomes. Starting now will enable you to shift your story to new meaning, creating new turn in events and start looking on the current situation as the option for transformation, not playing the victim of the past choices.
I love breaking things down to baby steps. It makes it easier for me to see the whole process in small chunks to address and stay on tracks with the progress. Whatever is the problem – kicking a habit or losing weight – start with assessing your current position. What is happening at present? Write down the list of things down. It’ll help you to get the full scale of the issue. Having done that, you will release how much you wish to change it ( hopefully). Later, you can reflect on the initial notes to see how much you have already change the situation.
Sometimes, with long-standing issues, it’s beneficial to get the external person involved. It could be a therapist, a supportive friend or relative. Their view of the situation could give you precious insight into the current problem. Together, you could brainstorm the stages to overcome the issues and what could help you to choose better options for yourself. Making poster and writing things down will be helpful to keep coming back once things are not as expected.
I believe with great support and honest approach; everything is possible and achievable.
The power is within you to find the solutions and alternative options to stay well, happier and more satisfied with your life. As Khalil Gibran said: ‘Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream’.
