Follow through. That is how I start out this article. We must follow through if we want to stop sabotaging ourselves genuinely. Winning starts with beginning, but success ends with following through and then you go on to the next goal and do the same thing. Sure, I can give less obvious, more original advice, but it would be too much silly theory, unproven and will not work. What genuinely works is the best to give out when it comes to successful living, even when new or especially when proven (I will not say old in this case) or worn and done a lot. Sure, I am not saying do not think originally or creatively, but I am saying keep your thoughts rooted in realistic operation and working.
Success through following through is the only way to do success at any level, anyhow. If it was not, the we could quit and honestly say we followed through at the same time, which would be like saying that we had our cake whole and ate it too which cannot be done. What I am saying is that we must do what we need to do to get what we really want in the process of everything. Honestly, sitting in a chair and walking to the door at the same time for a normal person is as impossible as achievement without somehow earning or claiming it. “You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot force it to drink.” That is reality. The fantasy is that the facts can be avoided genuinely without doing anything to follow them at any level. The reality is that the facts cannot be avoided, and if you want to succeed fully, you have to admit and follow them fully.
The more we expect for ourselves, the more we should expect from ourselves. That is reality in the most genuine sense and way. What I mean is, if we want to it, we must do what we genuinely need to do to do it like we want.
Sure, I repeated myself a lot in this article in a sense, but nowhere did I break with the reality of things as they really are. A completely real action is what it all comes down to anyhow and it does not matter what we fantasize unless we combine our thoughts with reality in a productive way. Realistically, sabotaging yourself is avoiding the reality you need to do what you want. Follow through and you will get what you want by doing what you need. We are as happy and realistic as we make up our minds to be.
