Have you ever said “I can’t XYZ”?

Can’t eat in a certain way / lose weight / exercise more / anything else.

I’m sure you have.

We all have.

Have you ever said “I am unwilling to XYZ”?

Probably not.

But, if we’re being honest, that’s probably a more accurate phrase.

Because, ultimately in life, if we aren’t doing something it’s because we don’t know how to do it or we’re unwilling to do it.

Skillset or willset.

And do you know what?

That’s absolutely fine.

It is fine to be unwilling to do the work.

We all are.

Every single one of us on this planet.

We will all have things that, if someone could magically change them, we would go for it.

I kinda fancy being able to play an instrument for example.

And I know I could learn with enough time and effort.

But, I just don’t want it enough to justify that.

And that’s fine.

Who would anyone be to to tell me how to spend my finite resources of time, money and energy?

And who would we be to do the same to you?

Understand the time and effort that would go into changing some aspect of your body……..

And you’re just not willing to do that?

That’s fine.

Your prerogative.

Your life, your body.

If you wanted to though, you could ask what you are willing to do?

Is there something inbetween what you’re doing now and some theoretically ‘perfect’ approach that you are up for?

Or, do you actually even need to do that thing at all?

Is there something else that’ll do (enough of) the job?

Unwilling to “cut out your favourite foods”?

But willing to “create an overall balance of the week that leaves you in calorie maintenance or deficit”?

That’ll work.

Unwilling to spend hour after hour in the gym or pounding the pavements?

But willing to do two or three enjoyable 45 minute RTP sessions per week with friends (that you, maybe, haven’t met yet)?

That works brilliantly.

Ultimately, never forget it’s fine to be unwilling to do the work.

And that we’ll be more empowered by knowing that’s the case rather than telling ourselves (and others) that we “can’t”.

Let’s just find what we are willing to do?
