Are you ready?
LET’S DO THIS!
Did you make a big resolution on January 1st? Are you already feeling overwhelmed and your commitment sliding, oh so slowly back to what you are comfortable with?
Is this the year, or week that you try it a little differently? I talk about habits and changing perspective A LOT, I know. I do it because it is EVERYTHING!
What is it that you want, what do you really desire? Everything from losing weight to starting or recommitting to a yoga program to running that 5 or 10k or maybe taking that new job that you really want, can be scary. Change can bring out the fear in our heads. But a very smart Daoist recently told me: Fear isn’t real. Sit with that one. Is it really just in my head? Are you still thinking about it? Did you already decide that that is a bunch of crap? It isn’t anything you can see or touch, so what is it if it isn’t just in my head.
So, what I have decided is that fear is simply something I can decide. Something I allow or not. Something I can actually control by how I react to new and uncomfortable things. I look at it from a place of what is the worst thing that can happen if I …………………? I list all the worst things I can think of. You know what? What I come up with is, ok – so what? If I fail, then I try something else.
Taking a big risk when what you’re already doing is comfortable or even if you are already “successful” feels super risky.
Work-wise, maybe a lot riskier if you are successful.
That fear based voice inside your head says you’ll lose it all if you take a risk.
No one wants the possible embarrassment of failing at something you really want.
It feels like trying to be one of the cool kids in 7th grade.
When you stand on the edge of the possibility of getting what you want IT. IS. HUGE!
The realness of succeeding at what you’ve hidden from feels attainable, tangible. You can almost smell it.
The fear of failing at what you truly, secretly desire feels devastating.
So, you know what you want, and you kind of have a plan as to what you need to do to get it
AND……………. you freak out:
OMG, I cannot lose this weight, get the job, keep the job, run a marathon, (insert dreams here)!
What was I thinking????
Why did I start this?
Who encouraged me?
Why aren’t they here helping me now, holding my hand?! ARGHHHH
Fear can be a curse that keeps us from progressing toward our biggest desires.
It can keep us from moving in new directions, because we are afraid of losing what we already have. It keeps us in a stagnant (yet comfortable) zone of right where we are. Let’s face it, we all have things we want to do differently, or be different or better. It doesn’t matter what your dreams and goals are.
I sometimes feel like I have everything I could want. Honestly. I am blessed and grateful for so much. BUT I want to do more. I want to help people more. But I tend to stop myself from really going for it, from growing my business, changing how I do things, because I am not perfect yet. Now, I know I will never be perfect, so excuses be gone.
So, I am doing it.
My way. Since the day I learned to talk, authenticity has been my gift, and sometime according to my Dad a curse.
I promise to continue to be genuine, honest, faithful, stay true to my truth- and to you, my followers and clients.
I will be truthful to you and myself. Part of my 2019 resolution is to “own my own crap”
Taking my business into more of an internet based, social media scrutinized reality is AMAZING! But it means that I have to be just as honest and vulnerable in that arena as I am in a face to face encounter. Yikes. I don’t want to be judged or criticized anymore than you do. BUT- in order for me to do the work I need to do with you, for you and for me, I’m there. I’m 100% there.
Why we keep our dreams to ourselves.
Why we continue to stay stuck in the comfort zone of just OK.
Why we would rather just struggle alone than step up and ask for help.
You don’t have to do it alone. I am here. I am offering my professional help in your Nutritional goals.
You don’t have to struggle alone. To toot my own horn, I am an amazing cheerleader for you!
All you have to do is contact me. Together we will design a one-on-one nutritional program that WILL move you forward, maneuver around the story you have been telling yourself for all these years.
Most of all you will get to eat! REAL. WHOLE. DELICIOUS. FOOD.
Maybe you’re teetering on the edge, having bought a new app, purchased yet another bottle of diet pills, or signed up for the latest craze of processed powders and potions, secretly hoping that this time it will last. There is a reason that the diet industry is a multi-billion-dollar industry. Almost every book, plan and potion will work at first. But if you want HEALTHY, life long nutritional habits, you have to do the work. You have to make changes. Yes, it is hard. YES, IT IS WORTH IT. No, you don’t have to be perfect. You just have to start.
Or not? Maybe you are still figuring out if you REALLY want it. Figuring out if it is really worth making changes for. Do you really want it bad enough to make the changes?
Maybe your desire is still your secret and you are waiting for the right time to acknowledge it. It can be “scary and vulnerable” to say that you want something out loud to another person. You can say it out loud to me. I promise your desires are safe here.
HERE’S YOUR TRUTH:
You are worth achieving your biggest desires. Your health is everything. Without it nothing else matters.
You are so successful in many things.
Then why is this so hard?
Because you’re likely used to getting things you work for.
And this goal feels like something you’ve already tried over and over.
You don’t want to live your life eating what tastes like cardboard.
You think there isn’t a road map tailored to you as an individual to get you there.
You think you need willpower.
You think you don’t have enough time or the money to be healthy.
You believe if you don’t do it, you will never be happy.
You’ll know that you let yourself down.
You know that not trying at all, is giving up on yourself and THAT is worse than failing.
I’m here to help you remember:
Failure is just an opportunity to learn a lesson about yourself.
Goals rarely come easily in an A-Z straight line.
Each failure is a part of the whole journey to becoming your best self.
You don’t need to do it alone.
You can decide to change your perspective. You can get the fear out of your head and make room for your dreams. You can create new and better habits. If nothing else, practice seeing yourself and what holds you back in that way.
Are you ready? Let me know, just say GO!
Welcome to your best year yet!
