What’s your addiction?
Addiction is about more than just substance abuse.
Addiction is, “the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming.”
Addictions are a great way to take the focus off of what is eating you and go numb.
Numb won’t help. It gives you a very temporary reprieve from discomfort…very temporary.
Reframe your discomfort. When you feel like you’re in the hot seat, it means change is coming. Change is good! Get comfortable being uncomfortable. You don’t grow in your comfort zone.
One of the most unpleasant things I learned is that procrastination is an addiction. And chronic busyness simply masks that you are procrastinating.
Dissuasion is another addiction you might not want to face. Dissuasion is that voice inside your head you shouldn’t be listening to. It talks you out of doing the very things that are most important to you. The more times you talk yourself out of doing something, the less likely you are to do it.
The voices in your own head are often the greatest obstacles to fulfilling your dreams. Fill yourself with unshakeable faith. Fake it until you make it.
Your destiny lays somewhere behind your procrastination and your dissuasion.
