Here are a couple of the many pages that I have dogeared to read again and again.
"Procrastination is the most common manifestation of Resistance because it's the easiest to rationalize. We don't tell ourselves, "I'm never going to write my symphony." Instead we say, "I am going to write my symphony; I'm just going to start tomorrow."
Rationalization is Resistance's right hand man. Its job is to keep us from feeling the shame we would feel if we truly faced what cowards we are for not doing our work. But rationalization has its own sidekick. It's that part of our psyche that actually believes what rationalization tells us. It's one thing to lie to ourselves. It's another thing to believe it.
I don't have time to work out today....have you said that to yourself like I have? I convinced myself to believe it too.
...Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny. This second, we can turn the tables on Resistance.
This second, we can sit down and do our work.
So, this second I'm going to get on the treadmill...and when I get off step into the studio and continue to do my work.
I have the power to change my life.
You do too.
The giveaway...I'm putting together some great fabric bundles. Just comment to enter. I'd like to hear your thoughts.
