When You Least Want To Is When You Most Need To
It’s natural in life to encounter times when you just don’t feel like doing it. When you’re low on motivation, you’re tired, and you have no desire to push yourself. This probably happens more often than you’d like to admit. Long days of work and responsibilities are exhausting and it can be really hard to get yourself up and moving.
We’ve all been there - It’s skipping that workout you planned on. It’s putting off the errands and to-dos for another day to give you time to take it easy. It’s glossing over routines and rhythms that you’ve put in place but don’t do nearly enough. I’m not going to act like it’s easy to change and do all of these things at the snap of a finger, but I am going to share with you a game-changing understanding about it.
When you least want to is when you most need to.
The times when you feel the most tired, unmotivated, and uninspired are the instances when you need to be the most disciplined. That’s because succeeding in these moments, and following through on the things you told yourself you’re going to do, leads to a disproportionate amount of mental development. Working out when you’re really tired shows you how truly committed you are to your health. Completing that list of errands, even when every fiber of your being doesn’t want to, proves to you how capable you are. These moments when you overcome your emotions and take intentional action deliver extra benefits.
That’s because the language of your subconscious mind is your behavior. At all times your subconscious mind is observing the things you do and uses that information to create your identity. Every time you stay accountable to your intentions serves as proof of the type of person that you are. And the instances when you stay accountable in emotional circumstances, when you’re more likely to make excuses and exceptions, it serves as extra meaningful proof that further solidifies the desired identity.
All of that to say, when you find yourself in situations where your will-power and consistency are really being put to the test, you have an opportunity to make a statement to your subconscious mind. When your tired and emotional, when the task involves obstacles and it isn’t easy, that’s when you must persevere. When you least want to is when you most need to.
