I mentioned in yesterday’s blog that I’ve just been skiing with some friends for a couple of days.
Some of them are absolutely superb skiers.
And what’s always really interesting to watch with skiers is how, the better you are, the easier it becomes.
I had by far the sorest legs.
Because I spent so much time turning and snow ploughing.
Those that shot down the mountain full speed didn’t even break a sweat.
To a large degree, learning to ski is learning to stop holding yourself back.
To get out of your own way.
And this applies in more areas of our life than we might realise.
From my experience, those that felt themselves “too busy” to exercise………
Who then went on to become regular exercisers…….
Didn’t become any less busy.
They just got out of their own way and became ok with doing a knowingly sub-optimal approach now.
And the same when they improve their eating.
They stopped believing the stories that they’d been telling themselves about how healthy eating is boring / time consuming / restrictive / more expensive.
They changed their view from one of “missing out” to one of “adding in”.
And you know what the best news is?
Learning to “get out of your own way” in skiing does still take a fair amount of time and practise.
In most areas of life we can just make that decision right now (and checking out our Four Week Transformation (with Money Back ‘Love it’ Guarantee) at www.myrise.co.uk/apply will make that way more likely!
