There is a big difference between “I can’t” and “it just isn’t a high priority.”

There is a big difference between “I can’t” and “It just isn’t a high priority”.

When a person says, “I can’t”, it means they are incapable of doing something.

It does not mean, “I don’t want to.”
It does not mean, “I just don’t have time.”
It does not mean, “I don’t want to work to accomplish something.”

What many people actually mean when they use the word “can’t” is “it just isn’t a high priority.”

Making progress is more important than making excuses

While you are still waiting to find an easy way (or a perfect time), someone else is already getting results because they decided making progress is more important than making excuses.

Anger is easy

Anger is easy. Try harder.

There are real problems and then there are the things people choose to focus on and respond to in anger because they’ve fooled themselves into believing that anger is a sign of strength. When in actuality, it’s a sign of weakness.

There is a time for anger, but rarely does it involve things that could easily be dismissed & totally forgotten if one just took a deep breath and moved on.

When discomfort doesn’t fade


In most cases – under normal circumstances – discomfort always fades. If, over a prolonged period of time, you find yourself increasingly uncomfortable with any aspect of your life – from your relationships to your mental or physical health to your career – that is a sign that something needs to change and it’s important to take action and do something about it.

While ventures beyond your comfort zone can be very rewarding & healthy, ignoring warning signs and subjecting yourself to long-term term physical or mental pain & suffering is not.

Your strength must be built on a solid foundation of self-discipline

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

Be very careful about investing in products that cater to people’s desire for instant results & gratification. This is one of people’s easiest weaknesses to exploit and manufacturers know this. Product makers don’t want your health, they want your money. The fact is, even if a product leads to short-term results, manufacturers are counting on your long-term business by convincing you that you need what they’re selling.

Understand, there is rarely any shortcut or “miracle pill” worth taking and unless you change your habits & priorities at the root level, you’re just catering to your weakness and masking a problem, not fixing one. Unless your strength is built on a solid foundation of self-discipline, you will forever be vulnerable to things beyond your control.

Struggling with New Year’s resolutions

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

If you’re starting to struggle with your NewYearsResolutions it’s probably because you’re trying to initiate too much change at once. This leads to feeling overwhelmed & quitting. Focus on making progress on 1 goal or 1 part of it & keepgoing. Add complexity/more goals later.
