Reading my journal today which i began 06/08/16.
I named it 'Becoming my future self'.
I knew I had to change what I was focusing on. I changed from a what will be, will be mindset to focusing on 'What would my future self thank me for'?
So how could I change to become the person that's able to get past what's standing in my way?
I identified the gap between where I was and where I wanted to be.
There were many times that i struggled with procrastinating, excuses and distractions.
The times where I was able to stay focused I had a plan, deadlines and was able to break it down to smaller chunks yet there were still times i felt i was banging my head against a wall.
Looking back over the years and seeing it in black and white, there are definite patterns of behaviour and feelings that continued to occur.
I have now gained an understanding of a simple and effective approach to see it from another perspective, seeing the unhelpful patterns and taking the steps needed, has given me insight to the bigger picture.
