Often I'll see a good bye post on Facebook

or a 'this is the beginning of my success' type of announcement.

And sometimes I think those are dangerous. I don't know why, it's just a feeling I have in my gut.

If you wanted to break your streak on here, then you would have to just be silent and let it break. If you were to login and post on here saying 'Well here today I shall break my streak.' Then it would for some reason not work.

In this case it's because the software's logic would define your streak as not being broken, because, well you posted. But what about in real life, existentially? 

What is happening in your mind when you post 'this is the beginning of my success, you just watch'

I know myself and I've been getting to be able to be brutally honest with myself. Facing the music rather than living in denial. And in my case, whenever I've done such proclamation posts, it's been because I wanted instant gratification but was masking it as a pursuit of long term gratification.

If I truly wanted success so much, then I wouldn't be posting short term about how I was about to get it. For me, maybe you're different, that's just virtual signaling. It's me actually just wanting instant gratification.

If I truly wanted success, then I would've gone for the long term gratification and been doing something that was leading me there.

If I truly wanted to break this streak, then I wouldn't have posted this.
