If you believe that (Fatness kills) and you decide it’s worth it to change your lifestyle consider these 4 – hardest of your life, but totally worth the effort – steps:
1) Dream a new you.
2) Dig deep in the emotional challenges that lie under the habits keeping you from your dream.
3) Work hard.
4) Keep going it takes lots of practice.
As a society we don’t practice or exercise our tenacity through difficulty very often or very well. We quit our diets, we quit or relationships, and the most heartbreaking thing to me is that we quit on our own dreams.
When Erica of my last post, the Runner’s World cover girl was six years old did she dream she’d have the thighs of a linebacker when she was a grown up lady? I don’t think so. So why does she promote this reality that isn’t her dream?
Because it’s so damn hard to live in alignment with your dreams.
It’s hard for her in ways I can’t possibly know. But I will tell you this, living a life true to my dreams is hard in ways I never expected it would be.
There are challenges that you don’t see coming, things you never imagined would change do, and you have to hold on to what you believe in like it is life or death.
When you waiver from a life in-line with your dream (and everyone does for a moment) collect your head, accept the work it takes and go back to the dream. Amidst the challenge you have to know for certain what your dream looks like, feels like and smells like so when the cupcakes are delivered (or how ever things get hard for you) you can stay true to your dream and the life that aligns with it.
Don’t give up on your dreams or yourself. Remember exactly what you dreamed in the first place and attach your discipline to that dream!
