Things to STOP doing!
Do you have a to do list?
Of course you do!
Do you have a “to don’t” list?
Maybe not –
The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you. – Tony Robbins
Which motivates you more – avoiding pain or seeking pleasure?
In my mind, I’m a “seeking pleasure” person – sunny, happy, positive… However, in my behaviors I could go either way.
Either way is fine – it’s just important to know which YOU are so you can motivate yourself to take action.
Lately, I picked a couple things to go on my “to don’t” list.
So far, I’ve NOT pushed snooze, NOT drank alcohol, and NOT told a story about why things aren’t the way I would prefer them.
It’s working for me so far! When a temptation pops into my brain, I just have to think “NOPE, we’re not doing that today” and I go about my day.
Alternatively, I could have taken the same outcomes (get out of bed on time, love my body, and forward growth) and made them positive.
To do: Leap out of bed on time and attack the day! Enjoy vibrant energy and complete self control. Speak the truth that you WANT in your life!
Wow – that sounds so lovely. Like I could look at it and smile all day. Notice I said LOOK – it doesn’t make me act for some reason.
Even though it feels out of alignment, I choose to go with what works! No need to fuss over all the details – I’ll get the results!
