What You Really Want

As much as ayokong i-label ang sarili ko na procrastinator kasi hindi sya nakakatulong, madalas talaga ganun ang nangyayari. Or gagawin ko yung isang bagay ng full force for the first 3 days up to a week tapos biglang bababa yung enthusiasm. Alam ko na we have it in us to edit these traits (referencing Atomic Habits) and it’s up to us if we will continue to be like this or have enough willpower to change.

Kaya naman natutuwa ako dito sa binabasa ko ngayon. The title is The Willpower Instinct. Ang dami kong natutunan on how the human mind works in terms of giving in to temptations and gaining self control.

May isang pinaka tumatak sakin which is to utilize our ability to remember what we really want. I always find myself craving sweets. All day everyday. Pero try to question daw if it’s what I really want. Gusto ko ba talaga ng ice cream ngayon or mas gusto kong mag-lose ng weight? Gusto ko ba talagang magspend ng time sa social media or matapos yung librong binabasa ko para mareach ko yung reading goal ko this year?

So siguro try to see the bigger picture and ask myself kung ano ba talaga yung gusto ko. Cookies or abs? šŸ˜… Kasi kung ganun yung line of questioning, nagiging unappealing na yung mga temptations and short term wants. So isa siguro ‘tong magandang tool na gamitin pag naliligaw ako ng landas papunta sa ice cream at cookies at chichirya at kung ano ano pang tukso.
