A common human experience is to endure things that make them unhappy either until they snap and can’t take another moment or until they die.
Ouch. For example, I know someone who had smoked for 20 plus years. Ended up getting lung cancer, had surgery and treatment and BEAT IT! Just to go back to smoking a pack a day rather than two.
Someone you may know that had heart surgery (triple by-pass). Full recovery just to end up going back to the lifestyle that got him there in the first place.
How many people have you known who…
Hated their jobs but worked a full career anyway.
Were miserable in their marriage but they stayed because it felt easier.
Tried and failed seemingly every year to change their body and health only to yo-yo and rebound.
These occurrences are more frequent than not. I hear it all the time in my fitness consults.
Sad but true. I’ve even experienced some of this myself.
The underlying factor, though…the thing that stands between us and having a life we couldn’t love more is FEAR.
Fear of failure.
Fear of success and what people will think of us then.
Fear of rejection or judgement
Have you felt any of those fears?
The trick to overcoming and pushing past fear is to create a level of excitement and motivation around the thing we’re afraid of.
Here’s a few steps that’ll help you do that:
Once you’ve gone through this exercise – it can take a minute or an hour depending on the intensity of the fear – write down and take action on the top thing you can do RIGHT NOW to move toward creating that outcome?
Action and motivation are a perpetuating cycle that keep fear at bay.
Creating action by sitting down with a coach and share your story. Remember, motivation is driven from results.
Is this helpful to you?
I’d love for you to reply and share a situation that may be coming up for you that resonates.
And of course, if tackling your fitness now is that situation, let me know by scheduling a consult with me (CLICK HERE), and we’ll take it from there.
Can’t wait to hear your story,
