So, day one of new me and I already hit a snag. I am committed to change. I am dissatisfied with the present and the future. I am ready for change, but I failed to identify my Nemesis. Late night snacking and late night sweets. Last night, on the night I decided to get 8 hours of sleep I snacked on chocolate covered espresso beans. Not just one or two beans, I consumed 10 or so beans. And then I stayed up till 2am jittering in my bed.
If you are going to make life changes there will be snags. Be ready because your Nemesis will find you. Prepare for it and conquer it. No more chocolate covered espresso beans for me!
I love Tony Robbins. He energizes me and makes me believe I can actually make lasting changes to my live.
When discussing healthy habits most people know what they need to do. Eat less and exercise more. Get more sleep and drink more water. Stay away from sweets and soda. The activities of a better health are obvious. So why do so few people who start a diet or a wellness program actually reap results?
Clearly identifying objective is key to change. “What do you want?” Losing weight is an objective, but might not be exactly what you want. I want to be able to keep up with my teenager. To do that I need to lose weight, but the real objective is quality time with my son. I also need to keep my sugars under control. The objective for cutting out soda is a long and healthy life with my family, not necessarily low sugar.
Purpose is the fuel for life change. The why to an activity is very powerful. A strong emotional tie to an activity correlates to completing an activity. Why do I want to live a healthy lifestyle? And who am I going to do this for? I want to feel good about myself. I want to be able to live long enough to see my grandchildren. I want to be a blessing to many generations of people. Generating emotion for an activity leads to completing an activity.
Finally, people do not complete life changes because intellectually they know what to do, but take no steps towards progress. Without clear objectives and clear emotional purpose change becomes a burden. Like anything difficult or new going back to old habits are comforting.
Listen to the video above. Does it resonate with you? Do you have a clear objective, purpose, and activity? Listen to Tony’s message an develop a massive action plan of your own.
