I always write that you should do what you want to do, but today I will write an opposite thing.
The theme is “You need to do what you DON’T want to do sometimes.”
I love doing yoga and want to progress, so I practice yoga almost everyday. Although I wake up around 5:30am or a little bit more early to practice, I sometimes think that I don’t want to wake up at this time or I don’t feel like doing yoga. But I know that it’s impossible to progress my skill without practicing, so I wake up early and continue to practice.
In my case, I want to progress my yoga skill, so I need to wake up early and practice yoga almost everyday.
I will give you one more example.
One day you find a pretty bikini at a shop and imagine that it will be nice to wear this bikini on the beach. Immediately you try it on, but you heave a sigh when you look at yourself in a mirror. Although you hesitate to buy it, you really like it. Finally you buy it and decide to go on a diet.
What will you do next at this situation?
If you don’t improve your diet or don’t work out, you will never be able to wear this pretty bikini. To wear this bikini, you need to change your eating habit and need to work out.
When I say “you should do what you want to do”, some people just try to choose an easy thing. But to choose the easy thing and to do what you want to do are completely different. (**If you really want to do the easy thing, it’s no problem.)
“To do what you want to do, you need to do what you don’t want to do sometimes.”
