I’m a firm believer that anything is possible…. …but it has to be the right time.
Let me tell you a story…
I’ve had a long push/pull relationship with body image like many other women. I’m not sure when it started, probably in my teens, and since then it’s been pretty much ever-present.
Sure, I’ll rationalise it – I even wrote a book about it! And in that book I talk about priorities and how even though we may think that we are chasing weightloss, what we are actually seeking is something even more important and connected to our core values.
And I stand by that 100%
But at some point, the priority always swings back to me wanting to lose a few pounds.
To make it stick though, the timing has to be right.
And that’s the same for anything.
But how do we know if the timing is right?
That’s the tricky part. Because you see, we are designed for the status quo – to stay exactly where we are!
We have this ancient fear centre in our brain that is actually running the show, and whenever we want to change something, whether it be losing weight, starting a business, entering that talent show or going for promotion. Whatever it is, your fear centre is going to kick in and give you a dozen reasons not to do that thing, for every one reason you can come up with.
The way to tell that the time is right for you is when the discomfort of staying where you are is more than the discomfort of what you need to do to change it.
Until then, that fear centre is likely to win through.
When the balance shifts the other way and the pain of the status quo seems too much to bear, then everything becomes so much easier.
Oh, and by the way, the shift happened for me about 3 months ago and I am pleased to report that I am 20kgs lighter now than I was then!
If the discomfort of not making headway in your life or business is becoming more uncomfortable than taking a leap and doing what you know you need to do, then get in touch and let me help you through the process.
