Do what you don’t want

Sometimes to get what we want, we need to do things that we don’t want. Believe me, it is one of the most challenging things to do but once you are able to, you are one step closer to success.

In many cases, the things that are not good for us, are the ones that we want and gladly do.

Who doesn’t love to sleep in on a fine morning instead of going to work and worst, fit in a morning run prior to that; go to their favourite fast food chain and get one of those yummy looking burgers (at least in the adverts) instead of eating healthy and often uninspiring looking meals; have a luscious sweet vanilla ice cream on a sunny day or my personal favourite, feasting on crispy and juicy fried chickens marinated in the most aromatic spices and flavours.

This is where the constant need to remind yourself of your aspirations comes in. Ours would differ in some or many cases but we all have a few of those.

What I would like to simply remind myself and perhaps yourself who are reading this is – to reach that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow requires the need to do things that we don’t necessarily want to.
