I have found that when I want to do something I shouldn’t do I think “Do I want to be the kind of person who does this?” or if there is something that I should do but am not doing I think
“Do I want to be the kind of person that doesn’t do this?”
Which reminds me of the gap between who I am and who I want to be and helps me move towards who I want to be.
Try it next time you think you shouldn’t do something but ignore that feeling, think, “Do I want to be the kind of person that does this?”
So sometimes you aren’t being better because you feel like being better, but simply because you see yourself in the future as someone who is better
