Do you know someone who constantly asks for your advice about a particular subject, yet throws your advice and carefully chosen words to the wind? I personally know a few people like that. As a matter of fact, I am just like that.
There are many moments in my life where I am constantly asking the same questions hoping to get a different answer. It is almost like the quote stating that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, hoping for a different result. Well, being an askhole is asking the same thing over and over again yet doing the opposite of what was told to you.
Have you asked for tips and tricks on how to lose weight? All the while getting frustrated when the number on your scale doesn’t move down… instead it goes up? Are you currently or recently enjoyed a chocolaty hostess snack, cookie, creamy beverage from Starbucks or the like?
Are you doing what you know you need to do? Drink water, move more, eat less! We all KNOW what we need to do to lose weight… it is the actual DOING part that is the hardest. Now put down that cookie and lets workout!
For me my biggest ask hole question lately is: Should I homeschool or keep my child in public school? To many who know me I am sure they are screaming YES! This is YOUR ask hole, Rachel! I am praying about our decision and going to try to keep my advice seeking questions to a minimum.
I admit, I am the biggest askhole and am always seeking what other people have to say on a particular subject. Yet, it can be so frustrating when they deliberately take that advice and do the opposite.
My motivational Monday inspiration is to stop being the askhole and start being the example… make positive choices that will lead to a positive change. The first step to a positive change is the hardest. Let’s make that leap together! I am willing. I am committed. I will put down my soft chocolate chip cookie, if you will too. Let’s stop asking and start doing!
