When something isn’t working…
When we aren’t reaching our goals…
We look outside of ourselves for the answer… a solution.
We look for a… a new diet plan, a new drinking plan, a new anything to make us be successful.
But, you already have everything you need.
All you need is you.
You have the answers.
You know what you need to do.
Life is not happening to you. You are making choices…
You choose to think it… you choose to feel it… you choose to do it.
You are choosing your mindset, feelings, and actions every minute.
Here is the good news.
You can change it all, or you can keep it all.
You can change who you are and what you are doing in seconds.
But, here is the problem.
Your primitive brain doesn’t like change.
It makes change very hard.
Because, back in the day, “leaving the cave” was dangerous.
And, that is ok. Your primitive brain is just doing its job… seeking pleasure, avoiding pain, and conserving energy.
If you ever run into a tiger walking down the street, your primitive brain has got you.
But, if you don’t want to eat the donut, don’t want to drink the margarita, or do want to go to the gym, you are going to have to explain to your primitive brain that it will be ok. We will survive (and get better).
Here is a very important piece of advice.
Only try changing ONE thing this week.
Practice it over and over and over.
You CAN make the changes to reach your goals.
You have everything you need. You just need you.
Quit looking outside of yourself for the answers.
The solution is within you.
