We often talk about making your changes as easy as possible.
About changing mind sets, self limiting beliefs and so on.
Rather then just hoping for more willpower.
But, it’s, obviously going to require some effort.
If it was easier than what you’ve been doing already, you’d have done it already.
Sometimes we may end up having to do things we don’t necessarily like.
And possibly never will.
Just the other day, we were chatting to one of our ninjas who isn’t keen on meat.
She was struggling to get a good balance of protein, fats and carbs because of this.
Now, as you may have noticed, we’re more fans of helping nudge people in a certain direction.
Enabling them to then make their own changes.
But, sometimes, a swift, sharp shove is in order.
“Which do you dislike more – eating meat or being fat?” I asked.
Now this isn’t necessarily about eating more meat.
People often get caught in the trap of thinking they should be able to ‘do both’.
Continue eating or living in a certain way and still get the change they desire.
Often because they know someone else who has / can.
But, again, if they could, they already would of.
I love cake a such as the next person.
But I love high energy levels, never getting ill and liking what I see in the mirror an awful lot more.
You get the idea.
There may be things you have to stop that you want to do.
You may have to do things you don’t want to.
But – which is more important to you?
Those things, or whatever your ‘why’ is?
