Self-improvement can feel like a tiresome word. What do I mean by this?
Self-improvement is not a stationary or static moment. It’s by design, a progressive experience driven by an idea, a goal or a value and along the way we often hit obstacles and disruptions.
Self-improvement takes energy and there are days you will want to invest and days that you won’t. And sometimes that can feel tiresome.
You may even wonder, should I keep going?
But just because something feels tiresome, it doesn’t mean you’re off course.
You may feel tired yet want a certain outcome. There is a gap between your two ‘wants’…the giving up and the wanting better.
It is pivotal to recognize that self-improvement asks more of you and requires effort.
So, what do you do with that?
On those tiresome days, you are meant to regroup and give yourself a pause. These tiresome moments are something of value. Let them be a friend to you; because the effort we give ourselves shapes what we get back. And as your momentum sways like a pendulum, trust in the trying and use this energy to help propel you further.
So, to begin again, change the question from ‘should I keep going’ to ‘how can I use these disruptions in a new way’? Remember, they are an invitation or a doorway towards change.
So, transform your tiresome moments.
See them in a new way.
And as they evolve into something more…
so will you.
