Day in, day out.
We seem to get stuck in an endless rut with no way out. Some people like being in that same groove, spinning their wheels and going nowhere. We all want to make changes in our lives but we get lost in the approach of how to do it. Change does not happen overnight. It takes commitment, perseverance and the willingness to change course when we don't arrive at the desired location.
If what you are doing is not getting the results you want, do something different.
Just don't give up!
It's not always easy (it never is!), change will make us uncomfortable, grumpy, hungry and sore. But in the big picture its always worth it. Whether you want to control stress in your life, eat healthier, live in the moment, lose that little extra weight or just be a more kind loving human being, you must commit to doing it. When the going gets rough and you stumble or fall along the way, get your ass back up. Brush yourself off and get moving towards the goal. You will not get there if you stop. Don't give in to the negative thoughts that you will never change and its not worth all the trouble.
Here's an easy map to get to your destination:
*Create a goal. Make it obtainable: if you want to lose 50 lbs., first set a goal of 10 lbs., you will have a sense of accomplishment when you reach it. Then keep going.
*Write it down. Look at it daily. Writing goals down set them in motion.
*Set a realistic time to obtain the goal. We didn't get where we are overnight.
*Do it with a friend. Or a coach, you need support and accountability to reach your goals.
*Commit for 14 days. At that time (if you stay committed) you will see and feel a difference. If changes need to be made to achieve your goal, do it. Don't quit!
*Celebrate your achievement. See what changes are occurring and focus on all the good that you are doing for yourself.
* KEEP GOING!
Learn how to be comfortable being uncomfortable. Change your frame of reference and be the best YOU that you can be.
You will realize that you are capable of so much more. You alone choose your path in life.
I hope this post gives you encouragement to make a change in your life.
Kris and I are working towards one of our goals also. We have a passion for helping others in their own journeys to better themselves. Through our own struggles for better health and fulfillment in life we will soon be able to use the continuing knowledge we have learned along the way to help others with their struggles. Plant-based nutrition, exercise, meals and meal prepping, stress free living and holistic living will be our intentions in creating a new venture coming soon!
More information coming.
Have a great week.
