Patience and Self-Discipline

These are the personality traits I need to develop if I am going to accomplish my goals.   These have always been a problem for me.  I am thinking of this now because I probably shouldn’t have taken the trip to Cancun.  I was able to go for fairly cheap and it had been a long time since I had traveled internationally but since I’m not actually making much money now I probably should have waited until I could better afford it.  I don’t have much patience in delaying things I want to do.  I could be semi-retired by now but every time I work and save up some money, I end up quitting and living off my savings until there gone.  If I could just change this habit I believe I could be retired in 5 to 10 years and not have a job to quit.

These traits are a problem when it comes to losing weight as well.  I want to lose weight but I don’t want to quit eating junk food and I only exercise when I feel like it.  When I do manage to eat better and exercise the weight doesn’t seem to come off fast enough and I end up going back to my normal habits.  I’ve managed to lose 20 pounds or more 3 times but it was always accomplished by situations that I can’t replicate in my daily life.  I just need to keep my future goal in mind and keep after it every day.
