Fear of judgement.
Fear of lack.
Fear of not enough.
Fear of failure.
Fear of the unknown.
Shall I go on? I have (and still do at times) struggled with all of the above.
I have one word that will change everything.
It is what helped me lose 30+ lbs and get my life back. It’s what helped me work through anxiety, depression, and co-dependency. It’s what I did to start each business I have had or currently have. It’s what I did to publish my book. It’s what helps me when I feel stuck in situations that feel beyond my control.
D E C I D E .
The next word after that…
COMMIT to the WHY you decided.
TRUST & NEVER GIVE UP.
Breaking this down further…
We ALWAYS, I repeat, ALWAYS, have a CHOICE. I spent a helluva lotta time blaming, asking why me (instead of why NOT me?!) and literally STUCK.
DECIDE — Ask yourself: What is it that I want to do? What’s the worst thing that could happen? What’s the best thing that could happen? What is holding me back? How would my life change if I make this decision? How does it make me feel to think about that?
I’ll share a piece of my story with you….and that is/was ….Losing the post-partum weight and all that went with it, emotionally. I decided I was tired of not recognizing myself, not only physically, but on a soul level. I decided in a single moment that I was going to make a change. When I saw my eyes in the mirror that day, I decided.
COMMIT & MOVE — Then I committed. I purchased a 60 day at home workout program. I stopped eating fast food on the daily and took it day by day. I changed my nutrition habits a little at a time, and found a tribe of women who were going through similar life experiences and who had similar goals. At that time, I had two children, a 2 year old and an 7 month old. Working out at home was convenient, affordable and I loved that my girls were able to witness mommy… even from that young of an age… become the best version of herself. It was important to me and still is – to show them we can conquer anything if we set our minds to it. That I did. Not only did I lose the weight, I learned a ton about nutrition and exercise, I gained confidence, I grew spiritually and emotionally and helped others conquer their goals along the way.
NEVER GIVE UP — It wasn’t and it won’t always be easy. The WHY that guided you to Step 1 – DECIDE is what we must come back to – sometimes many times a day. In the end, it changes our lives, and the lives of the ones we love, when we stick with what we KNOW in our guts we MUST do.
Trust that <3
I have more to share on this, but this is the start 🙂 I’d love to hear from you – what stops you from what it is you want to do? Or need to do?
