I hear from a lot of you guys that the reason you aren’t doing your detox or the reason that you’re still gaming is because you just want to play one more game, you just want to finish one more game, your new favorite game just came out and you want to beat it and then you’ll quit.
But the truth is, there will always be “another” game. Watch the video to learn more:
I understand why you feel the way you do.
To quit gaming is to move on from something that means a lot to you, so it’s easy to justify just “one more game”.
But there’s always going to be one more game, you’ll always have another opportunity.
New games are coming out all the time, so it’s easy to procrastinate on making the decision that you ultimately know you want to make, which is that you want to quit and you want to start living a more meaningful life.
Now I don’t know what a meaningful life means to you – that’s for you to discover for yourself – but continuing to game is only going to make you procrastinate.
It’s only going to make you look back at your life a few months from now and wonder why you didn’t just quit back then.
So if you want to quit and you haven’t yet, because you’re just procrastinating on it, you want to think about why.
What’s holding you back? What are you worried about?
Are you worried that you’re not going to be able to have fun? Are you worried that you’re going to be bored? Are you worried that you’re going to lose all of your friends?
Is it that you identify as a gamer and you feel like you’re going to lose that?
You want to think about why you’re continuing to procrastinate and what’s holding you back, because it’s within these answers that you will be able to leverage them into the things you do want to do, and fulfill these needs in new activities.
So think about that and leave a comment below about what’s holding you back. I love to hear from you guys.
