I have always loved the idea of achieving goals and becoming successful in life. Success can mean lots of different things to different people but to me it's about setting a goal, working at it and more importantly finishing it. You might think, “duh...obvious isn't that everyone's goal?” Well no, I think most people have dreams of becoming successful, but it's a general idea to them. It's like being wealthy or maybe famous, but with no clear direction on how to get to that point in their lives. That is why, at least to me, success is about goal setting and goal achieving. Doing what others don't want to do.
Of course this is easier said then done. However, for me it was a VERY hard thing to do. Sure, I had a clear idea of what I wanted and needed to do ,but when it came to putting in the hard work I lied to myself with excuses. I put work off till later (meaning never), and I went to watch TV or played video games, even though I was VERY upset about my life and really wanted it to change. I was just too lazy to do anything about it.
I realized that I was trying to be a person like Sebastian, a goal crusher...a goal terminator...a goal (okay you get the point). But that just wasn't me, and in fact when I did try to work like Sebastian it actually caused me to get more depressed and play video games even MORE! You see, how can you be expected to run a 5K when you have never put on a pair of running shoes and gone for a run? So, what I did was build systems to deal with this lazy problem.
