I want to feel healthier.
I want to be stronger.
I want to look better in my clothes.
I want to be able to play with my kids without running out of steam.
I want to be able to live a long, healthy life.
I want to be healthy enough to travel when I retire.
I want to feel more in control.
I want to be able to get the most out of life.
I want to be happier.
So what will you do to achieve those goals? What has to change?
We are all guilty of sitting on a throne of wants and wishes; as days, weeks, months, even years go by, and regrettably, we live in a comfort zone of apathy...ironically, uncomfortable as hell; sometimes even miserable.
We blame work, our lack of time, lack of will, lack of education, our partners, our kids, the weather, friends, society, money, the government, sometimes we even blame the dog. Excuses are little lies we tell ourselves to make us feel “ok” about our choices. They pacify us. Soothe us. Free us from guilt (temporarily). But they also hold us back. There...there... you can “try” again tomorrow...
Does that make us bad people...Nope, it is just human nature. But as long as we allow ourselves to continually make excuses, deny, blame others, pass the buck; we will alter nothing.
If you want things to change, you have to do things differently; take 100% ownership, 100% of the time. Make excuses to succeed!
Think it. Really feel it.
Allow yourself to create energy around your goal. Allow yourself to feel a true connection to the future you. That energy is the catalyst for change.
When faced with choices, connect to that energy and ask yourself “What would future me choose in this situation?” “How would I handle this?” Visualize (imagine) yourself solving the situation, choosing wisely, and coasting through with confidence and ease.
That is YOU doing it! YOU making the best choices! YOU making it happen instead of waiting for it to happen. Become that future you...now.
Live your life TODAY like you have already succeeded, that you have already surpassed your goal. Think like that person. Act like that person. Feel like that person.
That energy has momentum! It is powerful! Tap in.
