Might be the realist words I've read on here. Can definitely relate to this cuz I was just discussing this work my boy earlier tonight in a way. It all started when he was telling me how his niece and nephew got presented to God today and I told him I don't really pray. So he got a bit offended and was like so what are you good for. I told him that praying wasn't gonna do anything if you don't take action. Even having a plan don't mean anything either. Thoughts and prayers won't do anything unless you take action. So that's why I feel you on putting action to your plan and lack of consistency. My boy is finally stable with his job and not job hopping but he definitely was on that talking different bullshyt every so often and then not talking any action. That's why when he asked me what my plan was I said, "my plan is my plan". Cuz I'd rather talk results instead of talk bullshyt. So yeah it's definitely a marathon but instead of one long marathon I think it's more like a relay race actually. I say it's like a relay race because you gotta be able to pass the baton to your better self, or if not you can't get to the end of the race.
