Tricking Yourself Into Succeeding
How many times have you looked ahead of yourself and thought, "I'll never get done with this?"Picture: That's what I thought when I found my house, in the picture, full of about three feet of snow last year. It took four hours of non-stop shoveling to clear it out.
We've heard it all about eating the proverbial elephant one bite at a time or moving the mountain one rock at a time and it all sounds very exciting when you are talking about it or thinking about it. However, it's a totally different animal when you are standing in front of the mountain or ready to take your first bite out of the elephant. This is where people fail. This is where people look at what's ahead of them and psych themselves into failure. I know it sounds bad but all of us do it.
