Struggling to make the choices you know are critical for your health? Think of the people you’re making them for - your kids, your clients, your employees, your community.
Most of us do everything for everyone else and our own health and fitness falls to the bottom of the list. I’ve been there. But when I realized that my health is not about me - it is about everyone else. That is when I was able to fully commit to going all in with healthy living.
People want to make changes and get healthy all of the time. They start a fad diet to lose weight only to regain it when that thing was sustainable anymore. They fail to start Monday after Monday. They end up sick because they said “tomorrow” too many times. Whether it’s giving into cravings/temptation, being too mentally exhausted by the end of the day to exercise, or you really struggle with things like food addictions or emotional eating, there are plenty of reasons people struggle with getting healthy. At the end of the day, you have to remember this: IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU.
Well, of course, it’s your health, so in part, it is. But who else does your health affect? Your spouse, kids, or grandkids? Your co-workers? Your friends? Your health affects everyone in your life.
What are the consequences those people in your life would face if something happened to you…something that was preventable by focusing on improving health?
Motivation is such a fleeting thing. You have to find the TRUE LEVERAGE to commit to healthy living once and for all. Maybe this idea that your health affects everyone else in your life will be the idea that changes your life. Maybe it will be something else. Either way, you have to find and define your WHY and let that be the leverage to pull you towards your goals instead of waiting for motivation to get you going.
Truth talk - motivation is something you have to create for yourself every single day. It comes from consistent action. It does not appear out of thin air. If you’re struggling to make the choices you know are critical for your health, think of the people you’re making them for.
