“The Chief cause of failure and disappointment is trading what we want most for what we want now!” (author unknown)
I think this says it all when choosing whether to workout extra hard or sleep in (today I chose to sleep in… if you call still getting up at 6:15AM sleeping in!). This also applies to the whether we want to eat that extra late night snack after eating healthy all day as reward while watching a good movie or finish out the day on a healthy note.
I think many times the instant gratification from something we want now wins the battle of what we want in the long run in all aspects of our lives. This ties back into a blog from a couple weeks ago about not having a bad week but of making a series of bad choices.
Enough said…. this week I will focus on what I want most!
