Those Things.

You say you’re committed. You say that you would do anything to get to where you want to be. But what about when that means changing something that’s a secret little pleasure for you?

In truth, there are endless distractions that distract you from what really matters.

Sometimes it’s fun things.

Other times it’s bad habits, lousy training, or lack of effort.

If you’re stuck and not sure why things aren’t working out the way you expect, it’s probably because you’re not willing to change something you’re excusing away right now.

It’s probably one of those secret little pleasures too. Something that you justify away as being a reward for all the other good things that you do.

That thing. Those things. They’re the reason you’re stuck.

And will stay stuck. Until you decide to change them.
