How often have you said (or heard others say), "I don’t feel like it."? As human beings, we tend to be run by our emotions instead of our commitments. Have you ever canceled a commitment because you didn’t feel like it? Didn’t work on a project you know you needed to complete or postponed something with your family because you didn’t feel like it?

YES, you can!
