Anyone, even the most successful and energetic, sometimes experiencing bouts of laziness, procrastination and unwillingness to do anything. However, one easily cope with these attacks and go for a run, come to college and fly to the stars, and the other way and continue to quietly rot in place, unable to overcome its inertia. And the only reason is that they just were not able to recognize and defeat the lie that slips us helpfully consciousness.
I do not he

“Why he has made, managed, made, and I do not? Well, I just do not it. He won a smart, strong, fast, rich, and that I am? ”

Yes, we are all different. We all have different abilities and starting opportunities. However, this is not the reason to conclude that a given some super powers, while others – not. We like to compare ourselves with people who are at the zenith of his career, but completely lose sight of that at the start they were not in a better position than we are. Therefore correct to think quite differently:

If he did, then I can.

I am here and well

“Why do I need this change, excitement, and when I now quite comfortable? To lose what I already have? ”

It’s really cool that you feel comfortable and happy in the present tense. But what about the future? After all, no one state does not continue forever, and still change will come to you, whether you like it or not. And it’s better to be prepared for it. And this still should develop and grow.
I can do this later

“I’m too busy. I have children, work, responsibilities, dog. Here’s a little shake myself and start. ”

Shelving kills all undertakings. And does it quietly and silently, like a boa strangles its prey. “Today” is transformed into “tomorrow” and then in “the new year”, and then “never.” Ignominious death, is not it?

Remember this boa that await your good intentions. Beat it very simple, and it is enough to firmly remember and repeat every time he will see only one question:

And why not do it today?

I do not know how

“I’d do, I’d learned, and I certainly would become. But I do not know how. Nobody to help me, and I myself can not do it. ”

Oh mein Goth, it’s just incredible!

No, in the last century, this phrase has the right to life. Indeed, in order to succeed in the chosen business, sometimes you need a long training, mentors, literature. But now that the Internet can find information on any subject courses from the best institutions, training videos, literature. No, right now, this argument does not work exactly.
It is not very important

“In principle, I do not care. It does not matter to me too much importance. ”

This is a big and very dangerous lie. Only your life and the events or actions that can change it really matter. No one else will do anything for you, do not teach and will not help if you are self waved. The wind blows only in the expanded sail.
I’m afraid

“What if I screw up? Everyone will laugh. Or sympathize. Or despise me. In any case, it’s terrible. ”

Each story is preceded by a string of bad luck for success, and we have repeatedly written about it . The share of the most prominent entrepreneurs, artists, scientists had so many mistakes, failures and funny Feil that others in their place several times already shot. However, this did not prevent them to become what they are now. Therefore it is better to replace these fears to another idea:

If I do not try, then indeed all will laugh at me and sympathize. And with scorn myself I can handle myself.

I do not like change

“I just do not like all these things, and your new shocks. I am a conservative. So what? ”

No, nothing. There are people who are open-minded, and there are people who hate it. And that is their right.

But before you finally retire into the castle of his conservatism, stands still remember exactly what changes have given you all that you with such pleasure now in use. And you came to light only because of your dad and mom have decided at one point to a very big change in my life. Because the truth is great that they were not conservatives?
