How do we reach our goals? Sometimes they can seem so far away and just thinking of the steps needed to get there becomes overwhelming.
When we allow that panic to set in, we allow our fears and doubts to take control. We begin to tell ourselves “I can’t” rather than “I can.” We start thinking about past failures, automatically allowing our negative self talk to set us up for failure yet again. Avoid negative self talk, trust me, you are listening and you will believe those words that pass through your mind!
Don’t linger on decisions that will bring you towards wellness. Have you been thinking of joining that gym down the street for several months now? Well guess what, you have been thinking about it for several months too long! Make a decision and commit. The time to act is now.
I truly believe people can return from the depths of self neglect and obesity no matter how far gone they believe themselves to be. You just need to work on it one step at a time. Don’t look up at the stair case, look down at the step your foot is on and move it forward one step at a time. Eventually you will not be so fixated on how far away the top of that stair case is, instead you will be looking behind you and feel amazed at how far you have come.
