Ace92 18 Posted December 29, 2022 Share Posted December 29, 2022 Hello All! My name is Ace! I just posted my story so if you want to read it I'll post it below: As many of you I am addicted to games, internet, the whole lot. But this addiction stops today. It stops in favor of a healthier, happier, more fulfilling life. I will be detailing the things I want to do and accomplish below. I will break them up between short term goals and long term goals. Short term goals will be different activities that i will attempt to accomplish within a month's time. Long-term goals obviously will take longer than that but i would hope to complete them in a year or two. *Note: The times above are not concrete, they will be adjusted depending on what the goal is. I am just using them for reference points. Generally though a short term goal will hopefully be completed in less than a year and I expect a long term goal to take more than a year. Short-Term Goals: Brush teeth twice a day Make my bed daily Keep a clean room Shower twice a week Floss more Read 10 Books Go to bed earlier (10 PM at the LATEST) Wake up earlier (9 AM at the LATEST) Walk daily Meditate daily Drink at least 3 bottles of water (9 cups) Journal my adventures daily Just sit in thought/nature more Long-Term Goals: Earn my Drivers license. Be able to deadlift over my current weight (124 lbs) Eat more fruits and vegetables Learn more about history, science (biology, chemistry, and health science), politics and mythology. Restore and strengthen my relationship with God (and my family) Improve my writing and public speaking skills Speak Japanese, German and French fluently Improve my Singing Skills Learn to play the Violin, Trombone, Saxophone, Drums and Piano Travel around the world. Express self care through gratitude, affirmations, journaling, meditation, taking care of my body and God. These are a lot of goals. I do not expect them to be completed in a short amount of time. One thing that stood out to me in one of Cam's videos was to choose Engagement over entertainment. I think this was one of the problems I had when I tried to quit last time. I always put these goals on my list because I expect them to give me the same instant joy gaming or music did. When in reality, they don't, at least at the beginning. This goals and hobbies aren't meant to provide instant gratification or instant happiness. They're here to help your brain and mind grow and blossom from a bud to a gorgeous flower. They are meant to be completed like a game yes, but they should not be rushed, they should be sat with and pondered over until you become great. That's where the joy comes from. Engaging with it until you can't anymore. This is a mindset I will definitely be employing as I go along my journey. Until then I'm wishing myself luck and I hope the outcome will spark passion in me again. Best Wishes Ace 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
