Boredom can be a deadly adversary to you and the goals emerging in your life.
New goal(s) feel like a rocket priming for launch. You’ve finally decided you’re going to do something and the prospect of change, the excitement for change, is intoxicating. In fact, it’s hard for anyone to bear another moment without taking action and getting started.
The pleasure center of the brain is in full flex mode at this point. You get drunk on your ideas and feel invincible. Your vision is most clear in this state. You can visualize how you look or feel after you achieve this great big thing looming vividly in the distance.
Then overnight, boredom quietly slips into your mind and the plan you so exuberantly hatched a few days before is ordinary now. It somehow transformed. It was a cutting edge idea, but turned into a dull and basic routine after a few days of thawing out. It’s not just ordinary now – you’re ordinary too. What were you thinking?
This is how boredom begins to poison your ideas and original plan. It will turn your volume down and it will weaken the primed vision you once had. It can make anything remarkable seem average and not worth your time and energy.
Your new diet was exciting, until you had to actually follow your food and shake plan. Your new ab routine was exciting, until it’s just you laying on the foam mat struggling to breathe.
"Ordinary” is not ---> “average”.
"Ordinary” is ---> “simple”.
Simple is GOOD. Simple is remarkable.
Simple is central to your plan and essential to your goals. Simple is sticking to your routine. Simple is remaining disciplined. You don’t have to do anything remarkable – just simply stick to your routine and give it a chance to bake at the right temperature for the right amount of time.
Keep it simple. Be patient. Don’t let boredom convince you that you’re ordinary.
