Practising What I Preach

Okay so I preach quite a few different things on this blog, three key ones are positivity, setting goals and holding yourself accountable, however these are 3 things that I am not great at performing… Why is this? Simple. I’m new to it. It’s as simple as that i’m just new to it.

Before I started this blog I was a very negative person, actually it wasn’t until I wrote ‘The Plan’ that my mindset started to change and I started to become a more positive person, this was because of a falling out with a friend and I realised something needed to change but I digress. I used to be the biggest pessimist you’ll probably ever meet, I have a genuine talent for creating excuses as to why something won’t work or it will go wrong whether that be straight away or 10 miles down the line, think of Will in ‘Good Will Hunting’ and his ‘Bullshit answer to everything’, that is the level i’m talking about here. Combine this with me being (or should I say used to be) a right lazy sod then you can imagine how much I needed to change.

After the argument with my friend and I realised something needed to change, I started to read books and listen to podcasts and do all these things to help change my mentality, I should also note this is about the same time I really got into working out. But to get from that state to being a really positive and productive individual is not easy, it is a massive gap between where I was and where I want to be and i’m not even close to being there yet, I am still in the process of changing my mindset.

Change takes time and effort and so far it hasn’t been a great deal of time and I haven’t put in as much effort as I would like to have done so what am I going to do? I am going to make myself accountable for my actions, I am going to tell you all about this and make sure this year is the year I completely change myself, 2017 is going to be the year when I let go of that lazy negative person I used to be and grow into the person I want to be.

Between now and next Tuesday I am going to sort out my goals and sort out a plan on how to get there, possibly a schedule of when I am going to do these things such as edit videos, upload them and when I’m going to study games development and then I am going to post it on next Tuesdays blog this will hold me accountable for my actions and make sure that I stick to what I want to do and achieve my goals!

Combined with this I am going to start doing things like writing 3 things I am grateful for every single day, this will further enforce my positive thinking. This is stuff that is going to need a lot of planning as I have a heck of a lot that I want to do and need to fit it around things like college/work/exercise hence why I am giving myself a week to get it all figured out and then next Tuesday I am going to update you with my goals, my schedule and maybe a couple more things.

But this is starting to drag on so I am going to leave this one here and I am going to leave you with this:

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”

I would like to thank everyone who reads these blog posts, I’ve noticed some of you who read and like every single blog I post and it is very humbling to know I am creating content people enjoy or find useful or inspiring, it just means a lot to me so thank you very much. If you enjoyed it please give it a like and maybe a comment to let me know what you think. Thanks again for reading, I will see you on Friday. Ciao!
