You either get better or you get worse

“I shouldn’t have to do this, this is Xs fault”
“If X hadn’t happened I’d have more money”
“If I had only done Y then I’d have more time right now”

We all have thoughts like these.
But every obstacle is an opportunity to take responsibility, to learn, to harden yourself, to expand your mind, to create a good story for later.

Your behaviours are a series of habits.
carving a familiar groove into your brain,
like water running downhill.

You either become better at tackling your problems…
or better at procrastinating.

Each time you make a choice you are reinforcing a habit.
