Why Every decision counts
Even during COVID-19 lockdown, every decision counts.
Do the RIGHT thing? (make the smart food choice / do the exercise) The cost is that the WRONG thing can no longer happen (weight gain / feel like crap)
Do the WRONG thing (make the poor food choice / continue avoiding the exercise) The cost is that the RIGHT thing can no longer happen (feel good in your body)
Same power of decision.
Two very different outcomes.
The question is, which one do you want?
Maybe it’s time to stop fighting the big, deep, dark demon and just DO WHAT YOU KNOW IS RIGHT FOR YOU (which may be very different to what is right for someone else, but that’s another topic)
You put so much effort into AVOIDING the right choice that it would have been LESS PAINFUL to just DO the damn thing and MOVE ON.
Here you are, still stuck in the same old patterns and wondering when things will change?
I’ll tell you when they will change.
They will change when YOU DECIDE YOU ARE GROWN UP ENOUGH to wade through the much of changing.
Don’t want to be uncomfortable?
Then, stay as you are.
Don’t want to say “No” to yourself?
Then stay as you are.
Don’t want to miss out, exert effort or feel any discomfort whatsoever?
THEN, STAY AS YOU ARE.
And for God’s sake, stop whinging to yourself about it.
Because the truth is (and this is a biggie…)
You are UNCOMFORTABLE right now.
You are UNCOMFORTABLE in your body.
You are UNCOMFORTABLE eating in public.
You are UNCOMFORTABLE in your clothes.
(need I go on?)
So, if you’re going to be uncomfortable either way, wouldn’t it make sense to choose the SHORTEST ROUTE out of your discomfort?
Wouldn’t it make sense to go through a little discomfort now for the long term comfort later?
This is actually not the impossible task you make it out to be.
It really is as simple as saying “No” to yourself *sometimes*
Don’t deprive yourself.
Don’t deny yourself.
But you need to start somewhere.
And eventually, moving towards where you DO want to be will override the familiarity of staying where you DON’T want to be.
