Confronting My Issues: Self-discipline

TR is the bee’s knees!

One of the greatest struggles I have is self-discipline. I’m not sure why but we’re working through it in therapy. Like most of my issues, I’m sure it stems from my childhood. Thanks, Mom & Dad! *sarcastic thumbs up*

There are some things that I’m right on the money with. You don’t have to tell me twice. Sometimes, not even once because I’m already on it. πŸ™‚

But there are others that seem like an uphill climb. My inner drill sergeant is a real hard ass. She doesn’t let me get away with shit. πŸ˜‰ She’ll beat me up if it’s not perfect. Again, working through it with Dr. G.

What has helped a lot is Mel Robbins’ “5 Second Rule.” Basically, make a decision & execute it within 5 seconds. It doesn’t sound like much but OMG. It has helped me out so much. I don’t wanna give away a lot as her book does a much better job of explaining why we get in our own way. But I did want to take a moment to share what has been helping me out. I still have a long ways to go with my discipline & follow-through, but I’m on the right path.

Dr. G says it’s good for me to recognize it & that she’s really proud of the progress I’ve made so far. I told her how I want results NOW & she said, “That’s not how it works. These things take time.” Ugh, time. I hate that. I wanna be fixed now. Is that so much to ask? πŸ˜‰

Anyway, while I’ve been working on that, I’ve reviewed these pictures a few times as a reminder. May it help you as it’s helped me. πŸ™‚

5-4-3-2-1 GO!

Sage wisdom!
