The problem with

I noticed myself saying a certain phrase, and pretty often.

Always when talking about different goals I had for myself.

“Because no one wants to do that.”

For example, talking about the gym — “I’m not waking up at 5a to go, because I mean no one wants to do that.” Talking about reading, “I just throw on Netflix, because no one wants to get home and continue working their brain after work.”

“Because no one wants to do that.”

Without me knowing it, that had become my reasoning for not pushing myself just a little harder. For not taking small, potentially inconvenient steps to reach my ultimate goals.

But here’s the thing, “if you want something you have never had, you must be willing to do something you have never done.”

And, if you want to be great, if you want to stand out, you’re going to have to do something that no one else does. Something that no one else wants to do.

So really, using “because no one wants to do that” as a reason to not work a little harder and follow your dreams is one of the most irrelevant things you could do.

Duh, no one wants to do it. Everyone wants to look like a VS model, not a lot of people want to follow the eating regimen. Everyone wants to be a millionaire, not a lot of people want work to consume them.

You must force yourself to do the things that you don’t want to do in order to attain what you want for yourself in the long run.

Don’t let the convenience of right now stop you from your dreams of tomorrow.
