Self-Deception to Get You Moving

23 03 2011

You have your goal, you’ve deceived yourself into thinking you can do it, but now you have to actually act.  You have to climb that mountain.  It’s a big mountain.  You’re tired.  You look at that big mountain.  There’s no way you’re climbing that!  That’s too much work!  Maybe you’ll watch TV.  Maybe you’ll take a nap.  And then you can start climbing tomorrow.  Or the next day.  Or maybe next week.

Time to reach into your bag of self- deceptions.  “Oh,” you say, “but it’s a heavy bag.  And I’m tired from thinking about climbing up that mountain.  Maybe I’ll pick up the bag tomorrow.  Or the next day.  Or maybe…” Oh come on, you’re getting ridiculous.  It’s just a little metaphorical sack.  Come on, just reach in, and pull out one of the many tricks to get yourself moving.  DO IT!
