The Excellence Of This Moment

Of all the barriers to behavior change, psychological barriers exert the most influence. More often than not, it isn’t capability that limits disciplined behavior, but willingness. It’s rarely the behavior that’s the issue, but rather how you think about the behavior.

If you can change the way you think about a behavior, the way you mentally and emotionally process it, you can make it feel much more accessible. That accessibility is all you need to get started. Getting started is all you need to create an impactful change.

The psychological barrier I want you to consider today is the hesitation or refusal to start something you’re not sure you can sustain. You can’t predict the future but you can control yourself in the present. Focus on excellence in the immediate. Don’t concern yourself with sustaining a high standard. You can’t sustain what you’re not doing.

Never sacrifice your discipline now because you doubt you can keep up that discipline later. Meet each moment with discipline and the future will take care of itself. Disciplined action begins in the disciplined mind.

Answer the call. Do the work.
