I have some serious* shortcomings, I know.
I have known about them for a long time, and yet I rarely change until things are too late.
Usually I feel awful, gutted when it's got that far, I swear I won't let them happen again, and I get motivation to change. But I always slip back, I lose the motivation.
Right now several people are telling me how impressed they are with things I've done, and my attitude and suchlike. But I don't believe it's deserved, I feel a bit fake, I can't really say I'm proud of myself.
How do people gain personal momentum, improve themselves and then stay improved?
A good example is concentration, I lack it, until the shit hits the fan. I usually come good, clear it up in the end, but if only I could concentrate all the way through I'd achieve more.
Is there a book or other course people here have done that helped? TBH it's mostly lack of self-belief I guess...
*This doesn't include any really horrible hidden things - I don't beat my rabbits or cheat on my girlfriend I suppose!
