What I’ve learned over the many years helping thousands of people live healthier and better lives is simple. If you aren’t willing to change who you are on the inside, then you will never get different (i.e. better) results. You will always get what you’ve always gotten.
SICKER. FATTER. LESS FULFILLED. MORE UNHAPPY.
But, on the flip side of that, the people that made the most improvements all had one thing in common:
THEY DECIDED TO BE DIFFERENT!
It sounds easy, doesn’t it? Just change who you are on the inside. In reality, however, that can be challenging. But as I always say, the best things in life are going to be hard to achieve! If anyone could do it easily, then it wouldn’t be very fulfilling as an accomplishment!
Make a decision today to change something on the inside. Eat better. Be better. Think better thoughts. Whatever you decide to change, make sure you do it for the betterment of you family and friends so you have an impact on the future!
In Motivational Minute episode 2, I walk the different mindsets of wanting to do something healthy/good for you (desire) and HAVING to do the right thing!
Want to (having a desire) is a weak position to take. Why? What happens when you suddenly don’t want to? Will you quit just because you are tired? Will you through away all the progress you’ve made because it doesn’t feel good today?
Have to is a strong position, because you don’t have any other choice! Whether you want to exercise or not, it doesn’t matter, because you HAVE TO DO IT!
Where in your life can you change your thought process on this? What good things have you been putting off because you simple don’t “want to” do them?
