Do you suffer from “Someday Syndrome?”
I used too.
This awful mindset will allow you to believe that “someday” will actually come.
* “Someday I’ll spend more time with the kids.”
* “Someday we’ll start investing.”
* “Someday I’ll reach my fitness goals.”
Do you find yourself not doing the things you want to do and instead doing the things that you don’t want to do?
Even Paul in the Bible struggled with this…”I don’t really understand myself,” he wrote, “for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.”
Does this sound familiar? If so, you have become an unwilling slave to behavioral triggers and these triggers are powerful. They can prevent us from following through our conscious desires. They can replace those conscious desires with unconscious behaviors. And these unconscious behaviors are often counterproductive and even damaging.
We know these as habits. Automatic behavior patterns that we cannot resist.
Someday Syndrome is the deadliest disease of all because it kills your dreams and aspirations.
I believe there are five tragic losses brought on by Someday Syndrome. Pursue your priorities now! Don’t put them off until someday. If you fail to act now, you will likely suffer these five losses…
1. Loss of Your Integrity
Integrity means staying true to your values and worldview. For example, if you value spending time with your family but you work 80 hours a week and are never home, you’re not behaving with integrity. This leads to tragic loss #2.
2. Loss of Your Self-Respect
When you behave with integrity, you win a private victory. You have proved to yourself that you can keep a promise. This will help to build self-respect. If you consistently break promises to yourself, you will slowly
erode away your self-respect.
3. Loss of Leadership
If you don’t respect yourself as a leader, you’ll have little influence in the lives of others. As they see your lack of integrity and self-respect, your position of leadership is weakened, eroded and destroyed.
4. Loss of Your Legacy
Legacy is more than money or property; it’s about the imprint you make on the world and the memories you create. The values you demonstrate to your children and grandchildren. People will remember you for what you do and for who you are. Are you building a legacy you can be proud of or one you will regret?
5. Loss of God’s Gifts
If God has given you a gift or a talent, how can you lose it? Simple, by not using it. If you put them off until you have the time, you may run out of time and never use them. You only get one life, don’t waste it and don’t waste the gifts and talents that God has given you.
These five losses are completely avoidable. First, decide what your priorities really are. Next, understand why those are your priorities.
Having a powerful “why” will get you past the problem of figuring out how to accomplish your priorities. Then, come up with a plan on how to accomplish your priorities and give it a deadline.
Make your priorities your true priorities and don’t suffer the five tragic losses that come from Someday Syndrome.
