Sometimes you don’t want to do what you need to do, what’s expected of you, or what someone else wants you to do. So what? Do it anyway.
Don’t want to workout? Do it anyway.
Don’t want to stick to your diet? Do it anyway.
Don’t want to read one more bedtime story? Do it anyway.
Don’t want to study anymore? Do it anyway.
Feel tired and don’t want to go to one more kid or social activity? Do it anyway.
As long as you’re not in pain or causing pain or something else that would result in a negative outcome, do the work, suck it up, and do it anyway.
We usually find happiness as an outcome from doing the work, which is usually counterintuitive to what we think. We tend to want to be lazy, or to make excuses, I mean reasons, for why we can’t do something. But if we just apply a little discipline and sacrifice, heck – we’ll probably be a little happier by doing vs. avoiding.
Happy now? I thought so. 🙂
