Just a thought… when we’re in grade school and kind of in college we care about our grades, we are afraid of not passing and being left behind. We will stay after school, do make up work, summer school beg and plead. The fear, and embarrassment attached to not passing or graduating with your peers. The shame of not living up to your parents or your own dream is a motivator. Why and when does this stop? Do we use all of our energy and have we arrived at our best self? Has staying stagnant in whatever state you are in become final? I’m asking are we no longer ashamed of not accomplishing what we are set out to do? I know some are simply motivated by that consequence when they arrived home of report card day, or dcf threats.
I bet you have dreams and are using some lame excuse as to why you can’t achieve some level of greatness. I use some stupid excuse to psych myself out of writing( oh I didn’t do enough research, I don’t like typing blah blah). It really doesn’t have to be some pie in the sky dream, you could legit just want to go to the gym, or be a vegan( I’ll never give up cheese!) maybe even want to be a supervisor at the job you’re in. Level up move to the next grade of your life.
However it’s going to take something new. When you were in school the work and expectations were more complex. Push through the same way you pulled an all nighter for an exam, with a “I cannot fail” attitude is what it’s going to take now. I know I can fall back in the same thinking, well I just don’t have or I have kids 🙄 nah. Where there is a will there is a way. It’s time to graduate.
