Being able to procrastinate, excuse mediocrity and minimize others' achievements by finishing every sentence with: "the end will be here soon so it doesn't matter in the long run (whatever "it" is, no matter how large "it" is)."
"I'd like to get married and have kids someday, but..."
"I wish I could go to college instead of window washing and pioneering, but..."
"Wow, Brother Rich Elder has spiritual blessings and material blessings, but..."
That mindset is a quick-fix. It's mental comfort food: cheap, delicious, readily available but lacking terribly in nutritional value. Only when you try something else do you realize how lousy a steady diet of it makes you feel. The ability to shovel all concerns into a corner and dismiss them produces laziness, low motivation and feeds "impossibility-think." Although comforting while inside, I never realized how it squelches opportunity and ambition. Sometimes I still wish I had that "easy button" but if I did, I'd slide back into a little shell of worthlessness.
