no, thanks

I recently wrote about how much influence “things we don’t need” have over us.

Saying “No, thanks” internally helps.

We are constantly tested, even by normal things. Like skipping a habit we care about.

What might happen if we skip one day, right?

Willpower, intention, dedication, is a muscle. Every single time we choose to accept a detour, that muscle shrinks.

Be aware of this, learn how to have alternatives to do to not let it shrink, like a reduced/simplified version of the habit, or learn to cope with the small consequences.

It’s not always feasible, but it’s often worth it.
