Choose Your Pain

Long term reward normally has a short term pain…

For example I have Exercise induced asthma which is a weird combonation because long term, Exercise helps manage the asthma but short term after a run for example it causes a bit of a choughing fit.

On the other end of the scale we have short term pleasure which normally resulys in long term pain if repeated.

Lets go for a weird example and say someone starts watching porn (In a relatiobship) which as a one off or on occasion isnt an issue but if the porn watching contines, you get the short term pleasure of the quick relese, but the long term pain is that the porn starts interfearing with the intamacy between you and your partner…

The sex life is compromised and then the relationship starts to fall apart…

Where as if they went through the short term pain of not masterbating for one night so they had the sexual desire for their partner the next this would result in long term reward (Providing that the rest of the relationship was spot on)

Obvisioly a bit of short term pleasure every now and then isn’t an issue but eventually you have to decide what you want for the rest of your life, becuse which ever one you choose the long term is geting effected.

Level Down, So you can level up

Level Down, So you can level up

I know I wrote this post a few weeks back (Where in your world do you need to level up)

And this post is more the opposite, Where do you need to level down.

Because we all want to accomplish so much, So we take on too much and accomplish nothing.

We try to help others, Try and do five things at once and we become overwhelmed and drained, then do nothing.

Somewhere in your world, you need to Cut back on, So you can level up elsewhere, where it will make a difference to your life, SO you can make a difference in other lives as well.

You can’t do everything and in trying you’ll do nothing.

Do you have a time machine?

Do you have a time machine?

So that you can go back in time and change shit.. No So why dwell on it in the present.

(Not a direct quote) But a quote from Kevin Harts the decision.

We can’t go back and change the stuff we have done or haven’t.

So all we can do is accept it, Its happened, we can’t change it, but we can adapt to it in the present.

We can move forward and deal with whatever happened, But not if we cannot accept it.

So let’s stop the feeling sorry for ourselves and make some forward progress
