Forerunner's Diary - Ascension to Greatness

It’s just a suggestion, but try and sleep less.
It may seem counterintuitive but it works.

I’ve struggled with the same thing.
More exercise, more early nights, thanks giving prayer before bed and early morning walks has helped me loads in the past :pray:

Thank GOD for another day!

Today has been a productive day. I’d about 5 hours of sleep, and I made sure to get my exercises done first thing. It feels good to accomplish things early in the day.

My friend and I spent the day visiting potential offices and making plans for our cleaning business. I thank GOD; with PMO, I wouldn’t have the confidence in myself needed to move forward with any business projects. I also had a good phonecall on WhatsApp with a Rewire Companion.

The journey continues, a day at a time.

Always thank GOD for everything.

I’ll definitely take your suggestion on board brother! Sleeping in hasn’t been beneficial to me.

Thank you for your advice. :pray:t4:

Today has been good. I kept busy at work and completed my exercises. So far, urges have not been an issue at all. I’m preparing for an urge wave to hit at some point. I’ve no intention of going backwards, so I have to remain vigilant.

Always thank GOD for everything.

I spent the day relaxing, doing some reading and reflection. I’m so grateful for how things are turning around.

In the evening, I watched a movie with my mother and brother. It’s so nice being able to spend time with family and be present in the moment.

The journey continues. Once more, I find myself 1/3 of the way to completing a basic reboot. With GOD’s Help, I will overcome this time. Slowly but surely, I will make it.

Always thank GOD for everything.

Thank GOD for another day!

I remember how much time I would waste when I had my previous mindset - when I was stuck in a cycle of PMO and 2 weeks free seemed like a year. Even when I wasn’t spending 4-6 hours on the search for ‘the perfect video,’’ I was watching useless TV shows and movies, playing games I had no passion for, burning countless hours of my life on things that weren’t beneficial to me in the least.

Now that I’ve a to-do list and I’m having to move uncompleted tasks to another day, I’m really beginning to understand how valuable time is.

Yesterday, I was working at an event with ~5000 people - we watched England win the Cricket World Cup live. Insane experience. Life is much richer when you’re free.

Always thank GOD for everything.

Thank GOD for another day!

Yesterday, I opened up and confided in a close friend of mine about my struggles with pornography. I’ve known him for 12 years, but this was the first time I truly shared the struggle with him. He didn’t even flinch when I told him the categories of P I used to watch in the past.

What stuck with me is that when he saw my counter, all he had to say was positive. “33 days? You’re getting better, man.” “Don’t worry about it, we’ve all sinned. You’re showing that you don’t intend to keep doing so, which is what matters.” “To be honest, everyone we know is struggling with this. You’d be surprised who is still watching filthier things than you mentioned. You’re not even as bad as you think. Keep going!”

It’s sad to think of all the people who are struggling and suffering in silence with this. I’m grateful to have friends I can open up to and speak about this with. It has been a cause of crippling shame and regret in the past, but praise Him, I am healing every day.

Always thank GOD for everything.

Step by step, I will make my way forward. As I near my highest streak, it’s important to avoid overconfidence. With GOD’s Help I will continue on this path.

Uncompleted projects have started to catch up with me. There was so much time wasted on PMO and not focused on my future and building success. Each relapse is robbing from one’s future self. But thank GOD, I am still here and I have the chance to turn things around for myself.

Always thank GOD for everything.

Thank GOD for another day!

I’ve been feeling stressed due to all the uncompleted projects that are demanding results now. The podcast I joined a friend on in January this year, the fledgling cleaning company I’ve started, the dropshipping project I’ve kept putting off…As it’s Friday today, the stress and anxiety really hit me, since the week is over and there’s so much left undone.

Guess what we used to do when we felt stressed, anxiety or discomfort of any kind…

PMO. PMO was always the answer.

But thank GOD, we don’t do that anymore!

I embrace the feeling of discomfort that accompanies positive change. This stress means that I’m actually expanding my comfort zone to include my vision of myself as successful in life and in being PMO free. It means that this new me genuinely cares about accomplishing meaningful goals and getting things done. It’s a marker on my journey that indicates I’m not the same person I was before.

Always thank GOD for everything.

Thank GOD for another day!

It’s early days, but I can feel my natural mood levels are much higher. I’m generally happier than I’ve been in years. With my new self-image, I’m no longer getting in my own way and sabotaging my feelings of joy. The new me deserves to feel good.

Even on my highest streak, I experienced feelings of improved happiness, but they were different to this. They were a consequence of the habits I was undertaking, like fasting daily and healthy eating, running and exercising 6 days a week, dopamine starvation like quitting social media and listening to songs etc. In that state, I made huge progress, more than I’ve ever done before, but those habits weren’t a result of happy decision-making, but rather a form of punishment for constant relapsing. It wasn’t a healthy or loving foundation. Every single task had to be carried out. I put myself in a prison cell. One day I would forget to floss and feel like I relapsed. I want to establish those positive habits now, but from a different place, a place of loving myself enough to want better spiritual, physical and mental health, better relationships, peace of mind, wealth and success for myself.

I’m reflecting on this as I missed my exercises yesterday. Before, that would have been enough to completely derail my progress. Now, with a good attitude of self respect, I can look at the situation and tell myself, You had every intention of completing your exercises, but yesterday was very busy. You had work, things happened with your family and your friends and you were there for them. That’s great! You had your Power over Pornography course session which is an absolute must-do task to accomplish. And you completed that! Monday is a new day. Learn from this and complete your exercises before the afternoon comes around. You are doing great, man. You already can see some definition in your abs. It’s working! Keep it up!

Always thank GOD for everything.
