You Snooze You Lose!
I am extremely trusting of people. I assume everyone is a good, nice, wonderful person that only wants the best for everyone around them as well as themselves. So when an individual hurts another I am always shocked and trying to explain their actions away as some misunderstanding, unintentionally, only this isn’t always the case. I do believe that trusting people is without a doubt a strength of mine, but I also think that it is my greatest weakness. A too trusting person is easily taken advantage of, or blind sided.
A strength I wish I had? Oh where to begin? I wish my feelings were not so easily hurt. I wish my ego was not so tender, but most of all I wish I had more self-discipline. I am disciplined if others are relying on me, but if it is something for myself I seem to not be as motivated. For example, I am great with setting my alarm clock for 5 a.m. every morning and I am great at waking up at 5 a.m., but I’m also great at hitting snooze and waking up every ten minutes to hit snooze again until I am almost late. I am great at making plans to work out and I am great at buying equipment that will make the work out more enjoyable (heart rate monitor, arm band for the iPod, wrist band to wipe the sweat off my face… you name it I’ve got it). But actually getting from A to Z is a bit more difficult for me. If I have someone meeting me to work out I am there no matter what, but if it is only myself that I have made the commitment to I am not as good at keeping to my goals. I’d like to work on my self-discipline and stop snoozing my goals.
