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 uplevel—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 from those feelings.
What resources can help me figure this out?
