How are you spending your downtime? Do you feel the need to escape or zone out? What if you used that time to create a reality you don't need to escape from?
The value of your plan doesn't come from it's accuracy. The value of your plan exists only in it's ability to encourage you to ACT. We learn from doing. Planning can prevent progress.
What if instead of seeing a choice or situation as “hard” you started calling it “helpful’?
What if instead of focusing on the difficulty of a choice or situation, you decided to see it as a chance to build confidence or make progress?

"Most geniuses – especially those who lead others – prosper not by deconstructing intricate complexities but by exploiting unrecognized simplicities"
"no matter what your ability is, effort is what ignites that ability and turns it into accomplishment"
Hit your fears harder than they hit you.
I have suffered enough. I have created a backlog of excuses, exceptions & justifications that confined me to a life of fear, hiding, depression and negativity. I’ve left that behind. There are no more excuses, exceptions & justifications. I refuse everything that doesn’t actively support my happiest, fullest and most joyful life.
Focus on the magic in your life and you'll immediately find more of it!

Of course you're overwhelmed. You're focused on way more than you need to be & you're distracting yourself from what you can do today.
Make this positivity pledge to create more happiness & success. Find ways to apply it today with your thoughts & choices.
Are you happy with the way things are? Is comfortable & easy better than happy & amazing? If not: change. Stop focusing on the obstacles and do the work.
How you treat me is your path. How I respond is mine.
You cannot expect to win while you fight harder for the validity of your problems than you do for the validity of your solutions. You must fight harder for your goals & solutions than you do for your problems & obstacles.
The dream isn't enough. It's about the work you put in with your hands & your feet.
In this choice you're making, are you pushing or pacing? With your effort, are you pushing or pacing?
When was the last time an excuse got you what you really want?
Why are you resisting and resenting what is hard when that is the very path to what you want?
