It takes some self-reflection and accepting a couple of harsh truths to be able to snap out of the state of self-sabotage. And the first step is to understand how you are doing it to yourself. What everyday habits and mishaps are holding you back from living a fuller, more accomplished life — whatever it means for you?
Changing one word is a tiny change. But you should never underestimate the power of small changes. Changing one word will change your attitude, and your actions and behaviour will change with it too.
Can we please factor daily contentment into the equation of being successful? Can we aim for enjoying the small things instead of always putting them off in favour of long-term rewards?
Not being always available is not manipulation. It just means that you can have a full life and you can choose yourself before you decide to sacrifice your time and resources for someone else.
We glorify concepts like motivation, inspiration and willpower — and they are glorious but very unreliable and unrelated to lasting success. It is not only possible to get things done without motivation and inspiration, but expecting them to be the power that propels you forward is downright detrimental to success.
