The best choices in life aren’t always the ones we make. So many times we know what we should be doing and yet we choose a different path. One of the tasks in life that we often put off is facing our fears.
Some individuals would argue that the reason we might choose not to exercise or do what’s best for us is because we don’t want to get better. We’d rather live in fear or not do the necessary work to be successful. Many of us would disagree. At times it is just difficult to get into the habit of doing what needs to be done.
While this is often the truth, we cannot let this be an excuse. Yes, there will be times when we get lazy and don’t feel like going to the gym and yes, there will be times when we know we should practice facing our fears, only to let them get the best of us. There will also, most likely, be times when we put other tasks in front of taking care of ourselves. With all of this being the case, we have to remember that in order to have a happy and healthy future, we have to make wise decisions.
The next time you find yourself not feeling up to doing what’s best for you, ask yourself the following questions. What will be the most beneficial decision in the long run? Is it better to give into fear or laziness or is it better to face our fears and get active? Once you answer these questions, do what you know in your heart and mind to be the truth! In order to get better, we need to put in the effort to do so!
