Are You on a Collision Course?

Why do we torture ourselves putting off our academic work? You know exactly what I am talking about.

We have piles everywhere. Projects we need to do, but we don’t find the time to do them. Do you hear this "Poor Me" attitude? All the piles of academic work are filling your life with guilt and this guilt is hurting your body and spirit. This is slowly and painfully taking away from our otherwise pleasant experiences. Do you over-extend yourself and get involved in extra activities….anything to get away from the work that surrounds you? Are you prepared to live this tortured existence? Do you want to sit on the side lines while everyone else enjoys life and you suffer with the guilt of not getting things done? This guilt is draining your life energy. If you dread walking in the door to face this wall of stuff and undone jobs, let’s figure out a way, together, to combat the guilt and surmount the mountain of work.

Papers, project, and studying are the things you are avoiding. The longer you do this the harder it will be to get a grasp on them and succeed.

Right now, you are living a life of fear. Fear is the opposite of caring for yourself. Fear of being without… Fear of not being understood… Fear of not being loved. Fear is lack of faith in yourself. You create this fear, guilt and worry in your life. You put these obstacles in your path, so that you will not find the peace you deserve. Put your faith in yourself and start to get rid of this academic work. I have given you the tools: All you have to do is listen and start with small jobs. I don't expect you to get it all done at once, but you have to start somewhere. Many people need to see results immediately; this is our nature. If we don't we give up and go back to our previous way of life.

I am here to tell you that your world did not get overwhelming overnight and it is not going to get fixed in one day. We are working on changing life-long habits; this is going to take some hard work and consistent routines. It will not be a cake walk, but as you start to see progress, you will be wanting to go full-force and that could work against us.

We work until we are burnt out and then we no longer want to tackle the academic work anymore because we are so tired. This kind of turnaround in your life is like going on a crash diet. You get on a roll doing your schoolwork and, before you know it, you are behind again.

We are putting our future on a diet; a diet of behavior modification. I am teaching you a new way of tackling your academic work and it starts with establishing routines one habit at a time.

Anyone can do this. It is so simple; you just have to start. Get you away from social media and the TV and begin your new way of looking at your life. NO MORE GUILT! You have found the answer. It is within you. Your true spirit is being suffocated by not tackling your academic work. It is a matter of actively working toward your goal of an organized and satisfying academic life. You can do this by using the tools: Your routines, basic weekly plan, and other skills that C.A.N. can help you attain. Are you willing to work?

Ask yourself if you ready to change your life. I don't expect you to do all of this right off the bat. This is not a magic pill that I am giving to you. It is a recipe for Peace and you are the Chef. So, let's get ready to for the biggest feast of all; a celebration of your love of yourself and your future life.

C.A.N. is here for you to ensure that you are up to the challenges that lay ahead. If you would like to discuss the transition to college and how C.A.N. can be of assistance, please fill out the contact us page on our website.
