For example, I might join a coaching program with the idea of trying it out, but not really sure if I can do it. Then when things start to get hard or overwhelming … I might be looking for the exit door, or hiding so I don’t have to be embarrassed. This is being halfway in, with an eye on the exit. Another example: I commit to meditating every day. Then when I’m meditating, instead of being fully in the meditation, maybe I’m waiting for it to be over, or giving myself reasons I should end early. Then two days into it, maybe I really don’t feel like it, so I skip it. Then I find reasons to keep skipping it. This is even less than halfway in.
If I am being fully honest, I recognize myself in this with some aspects of my life, such as social things. I often find excuses as to why it's a positive thing to not do something. At times I might be right, but the underlying mindset is an issue.
Though to be honest, this has been going better since I've committed to learning.
