Overcoming Uncertainty by Sean Ogle

Write down a major life goal you have yet to achieve or even begin to take action on. For each goal, write down three uncertainties (read: fears) you have relating to each goal. Break it down further, and write down three reasons for each uncertainty. When you have three reasons for your fear, you’ll be able to start processing the change because you know where the fear stems from. Now you’ll be able to make a smaller changes that push you towards your larger goal. So begins the process of “trusting yourself.”

Getting slim (or to be a SMART goal: 31 inch waist with some semblance of abs, by Aug 20th)

OK I actually began taking action on this last week.

1. failure

2. soreness

3. missing out on eating tons of fatty, junky foods (having to say “no” to things)

Why do I fear Failure?  -Well if I tell everyone about this goal and then I don’t hit, I look like an idiot who is run by his appetite and laziness (yeah my pride is battling my gluttony and sloth…it’s a battle of the deadly sins).

Why do I fear soreness? -Because it hurts.  I guess it is some sort of self-preservation to not want pain.

Why do I fear missing out?  -Several reasons…in part because of bad habits, in part because it’s cheap and easy to eat like crap, in part because it’s fun to go out for a burger and fries with the guys, etc….and cookies are yummy.
