So what happens when I hold myself accountable and do the things I need to do consistently? The simple answer is that I get what I want. I become more healthy and fit. I grow my financial abundance. I grow myself. I grow those around me.
I am going to focus on how I feel. Pride. Joy. Enthusiasm. Excitement. Connection. Significance. Freedom.
When I was working for other people, my number one desire was time freedom. When friends or family came into town, I wanted to just be able to take off and go see them. When I had the chance to travel, I wanted to just be able to say yes. When I was sick, I wanted to be able to just stay in bed and recover as quickly as possible. I wanted Control. So I guess it is not even really about freedom, as much as it is about control.
Now that I control my time and my income, I need to apply what I am thinking about as seeing control of me as an extreme. When I control me to do the things that I need to do, I get the things that I am supposed to get. And allowing myself to slack off, or say “not today” means that I am not truly controlling myself. I am letting whim, or distractions, or random anything control me. If what I truly want is control, than I need to take it and control myself for what I need to do to get what I want.
