Hi. I need help. I never follow through with the promises I make to myself. I do fine getting by in life but I want more and I’ve never been able to accomplish a conscious goal I’ve set to up level. Whether it be with my fitness, my drinking habits, my parenting, organization, my time management or all of the above- I spend a ton of time making plans, setting goals and then ultimately not following through.
This is making me miserable, I can’t uncover the reason that I always quit…. My compelling reason is I want to feel proud of myself and I want to set a good example for my kids – are these reasons not compelling enough to overcome my primitive brain? In the moments of quitting it’s usually due to feelings of exhaustion/ overwhelm/ loneliness and a desperate need for relief of those feelings……. What resources can help me figure this out?
