Stop being determined to fail

Stop making things not work for you. Stop looking for reasons why it doesn't work or why it will never work for you, instead figure out a way to make good things happen for you.

Whenever we try to make changes in our lifestyle, sometimes we doubt ourselves that maybe we can't do it or it isn't suitable for us. Why does it happen? It isn't because of fear but because we don't believe in ourselves. We aren't confident enough to keep pushing through to do the things we should.

Believe in yourself more

No idea will work for every single person, but a lot of them can work for most people as long as you believe that you can make them work. Stop wasting your energy to worry. Use the what you have to create and grow from what you've learned.

You need to put more trust in yourself and believe in the process of things. If one thing doesn't work for you then just experiment with new ideas and get through the day until you discover a way to make it work.

It is possible for people to improve

You need to remind yourself that it is possible to raise the bar in your own life even if everyone around you settles for mediocrity.

Believe that you deserve better things, happiness, and a meaningful job. You can make things happen as long as you have the courage to face challenges with head held high. If you don't believe that it's possible to make new things work, then it's hard to make any progress.

How to Fall in Love With Boredom

There is little hope of falling in love with a habit you really hate. If you dislike exercising, but you know it's good for you, you have two options to fall in love with the repetitiveness of the routine:

  • You can increase your proficiency at the task. Learn the basic fundamentals of your task and celebrate the small wins and improvements you make.
  • You can fall in love with a result of the task rather than the task itself.

The Power of Patience

Success is often found by practising the fundamentals that everyone knows they should be doing, but they find it too tedious or simple to practice regularly.

A blend of patience and consistency creates the ultimate advantage.

Understand what is holding you back

Take the time to examine why you're avoiding a habit. In most cases, the cause is related to something deeper than laziness or not wanting to do something. Once you understand the true reasons you can find an appropriate remedy.

A reason for not exercising, for example, could be because you don't like crowds or the long commute to the gym.

Have a plan for when you fail

Understand and accept that you are not going to be perfect on your first try. So take the time to think ahead of a plan about ways to get back on track when you slip up.

Types of Deliberate Practice

  1. Naive Practice: it is the simple repetition of tasks that doesn't require challenging the mind. It isn't associated with boosting performance levels.
  2. Purposeful Practice: it is a level higher than naive practice because it requires a bigger amount of concentration and constructive criticism.
  3. Deliberate Practice: this requires an intense amount of advanced training with an expert in their specific field. This is rarely done by "normal" people and it practice takes 4-5 hours a day minimum.

The Promise of Deliberate Practice

Engaging in deliberate practice allows you to showcase the best version of yourself. You get to learn so many valuable and useful traits such as patience, grit, and meticulousness.

Whatever skill or sport you want to excel in, deliberate practicing is the best and the fastest way to enhance yourself.
