In the future, instead of asking "How can I avoid this painful task?" ask, "If I don't take action now, what will this ultimately cost me?" Pain can be your friend if you use it effectively.

You make decisions based on WHERE YOU ARE . . . NOT where you've been or where you want to be.

                                                          ----libertarian radio talk host John Ziegler

Comment: I've always liked this quote, although I do believe that past experiences as well as future aspirations do still factor into decision making.

“The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.”

"When you give up on hope, something even better happens than it not killing you, which is that in some sense it does kill you. You die. And there’s a wonderful thing about being dead, which is that they—those in power—cannot really touch you anymore. Not through promises, not through threats, not through violence itself. Once you’re dead in this way, you can still sing, you can still dance, you can still make love, you can still fight like hell—you can still live because you are still alive, more alive in fact than ever before. You come to realize that when hope died, the you who died with the hope was not you, but was the you who depended on those who exploit you, the you who believed that those who exploit you will somehow stop on their own, the you who believed in the mythologies propagated by those who exploit you in order to facilitate that exploitation. The socially constructed you died. The civilized you died. The manufactured, fabricated, stamped, molded you died. The victim died."
