Pleasure Or Happiness

Pleasure Or Happiness

These are two pieces of the same coin and between them there is a third concept that is always hidden or forgotten but nonetheless present in every desicion we make : pain.

To keep it simple, all the choices we have can be divided into 2 categories :

- the immediate pleasure, that is followed one way or another by pain in the future

- the future happiness, that is the result of a pain endured in the present moment.

One way or another there is a price that we pay so the question is : Do I want to get small fun now and suffer later or am I ready to suffer now to be happy later ?

How Do I Build More Discipline

How Do I Build More Discipline

It's easier said than done, I know.

Although we agree rationally with that idea doing it is another story.

First we must understand that pain is a natural and necessary part of the process if we want to reach any goal. In other words, easy shortcuts are always a complete skam.

Quick story : One day one a man saw a caterpillar struggling to get out of its cocoon so he used a knife to help it. As soon as the butterfly got out thanks to the man it died because its wings were too weak to fly.

Ccl : Going through the pain of effort is a price we must pay to reach our goals

Managing Self-doubt

Managing Self-doubt

Beyond the fear of pain, sometimes the fear of uncertainty (AKA self-doubt) can be far greater.

That's why it's important to keep your mind and spirit in check :

- your only limits are the ones you impose on yourself

Just visualize your objective clearly, get to work and you will get there 100%.

Rather than loosing your time fearing the results focus on the process and enjoy it.

Remember : whatever it's height is you have to start at the bottom to climb a mountain πŸ”οΈ

A Quitter Never Wins And Winner Never Quits

A Quitter Never Wins And Winner Never Quits

No matter your excuses and emotion at the moment just don't think and do the work. Don't try to bargain with yourself it comes to weakening your spirit by enforcing the worst addiction you can : comfort.

At the end of the day what is in motion stays in motion and the hardest things in life remain the ones that make life the easiest.

So out of respect for your self give up to the luxury of giving up and go all in on your input (your efforts) which is under your control by opposition to the outcome (your results) which doesn't depend on you.
