Why Am I Doing This?


I need to get my s--- together! I'm not a kid anymore.⁣

Too much drinking.⁣

Too much pot.⁣

Too much gaming.⁣

I'm wasting time, but how do I to stop it? Every time I start something - I just procrastinate more. ⁣

I'm more than this. ⁣

And if I mess around too long - it will be too late. ⁣

I need to get a real job and make something of myself. Sitting on this couch is killing my self-respect. But I don't know what to do.⁣

Sound familiar?⁣

I hear this a lot. ⁣

I want you to know it's not you. Nothing is wrong with you. ⁣

You aren't lazy, or defective, or dumb.⁣

People stay stuck where they don't want to be because they're missing information. ⁣

That's the only reason.⁣


Nothing is wrong with you. ⁣

All you have to do is look for it.⁣

You have what it takes to reach for what you want.
