Showing Up When You Don't Want To

They say that even on days you don’t want to show up, you should.

I agree.

Showing up in the face of adversity consistently will have an inverse affect.

-In that-

The more you show up, the easier it is to face the adversity that kept you from showing up in the first place.

What felt insurmountable at first will slowly be downgraded to a slight discomfort.

The more you show up when don’t want to, the less you’ll experience not wanting to show up.

Overcoming adversity is cyclical process. The more we do it the easier it becomes.

If there’s something you don’t want to do, chances are you should do it.

So instead of saying, "Show up even when you don't want to."

People should say, "Show up especially when you don't want to."


Make a list of things you're avoiding. Do one of those things this week.


What is something you don't want to do, but know you should?


"Perfectionism and procrastination have such a fine line. You say, 'Well, I want it to be good. I want it to be perfect.' But what you're really doing is not doing your work. You're putting off showing up and being visible because then you're going to be judged, and it might suck." - Jen Sincero
