Veronica is my evil alter ego and co-author of my new workbook Your Alter Ego… Revealed!, a fun, sexy workbook that’s perfect for lazy winter afternoons. Let’s see what terrible advice she has for you today…
North American culture is obsessed with goal setting and achieving shit, which is what The Chariot represents – moving forward, upward and onward. Yay!
There’s just one tiny problem: what happens if only part of you wants success but another part longs for pure sloth and debauchery?
My good twin Kate sets her alarm for 8am every morning. But when it goes off, I am seduced by the siren song of my warm, comfy bed that whispers “noooo….staaaayyyyyy! Just 5 min…” which turn into two hours and then the day’s pretty much shot.
Part of you wants to eat healthy but the other part wants red wine, cheese, chips and chocolate. Part of you wants to save for retirement but the other part wants to go on lavish vacations and buy fancy chai lattes everyday.
Unless you can get both selves on board, you’re pretty much fucked and will go nowhere in life.
So how do you do this? Easy. Don’t deny you’re “evil” side – tempt it.
Tell yourself things like if I get up at 8am and go for a run and eat healthy all week, I get to lay in bed all day on Saturday and eat cookies for breakfast…guilt free.
If I work hard today and get all my tasks done, I will indulge in a feisty gossip sesh with a friend in the evening.
There’s no use trying to be perfect….so just give up now!
