“No amount of roadblocks are strong enough to stop you from achieving your goals.” ~Unknown
Our lives are full of roadblocks. The things that try to stop you from achieving your goals. They try to prevent you from doing the things in your life that you choose to do.
A roadblock can show its face in many form. For me, some of my most common road blocks come in a form that are dangerous for me. I use TV, video games, procrastination, and just plain laziness as my excuses for not getting my goals accomplished.
I think that most roadblocks are actually things that you can easily change. I know that it is very hard to do though. If you are like me, I have been a procrastinate for as long as I remember. I will always put things off until the very last-minute. I was always thinking that waiting until the last-minute makes me more productive. Does it really though?
Over the past few weeks, I have been very proud of myself, as I was being very productive. I was working everyday on multiple projects including my business plan, and this blog.
This week, I hit a road block. My plan was for a post on Monday. Start of a new week I thought, what better way to start than a blog post. It would be a great start to my goal of writing two post per week. What I really did though…
I woke up very late, not feeling to hot either. I use the excuse of not feeling well, to put everything off. I sat on the couch under a warm blanket and watched TV all day. Then to top it off, I went to bed supper early. I figured I would just do everything on Tuesday.
Well, what happened on Tuesday? I was very ill. I actually had a good reason to stay in bed all day. I was in pain, and just very sick.
I understand that things happen, and sometimes you just have to take a sick day. I needed it Wednesday, but know I was regretting the fact that I had put things off on Monday. Especially when it comes to Wednesday!
Wednesday I put everything off again. This time was for the reason of recovery, and my roommate stayed home from work, so I decided just to hang out.
I am the master of putting things off! I can use any excuse to stop me from achieving what I need to achieve. This is a very bad thing in my life, that is proving to be very difficult to over come. Worst part is, that most of my roadblocks are all in my head.
I had strong things getting in my way this week. I have to work on myself, and figure out a way to help me overcome these very difficult roadblocks. It certainly is very tough, and I know that these pesky roadblocks will continue to show up in my life.
I am trying. I will always have to face these. All I can do is work had, and hope that I can over come!
Have a Great day!
