I remember having one of my friends ask me about the shakes and how much they cost. When she said they were too expensive, at that moment I knew she wasn’t ready. When I didn’t want to do something I would make excuses or dodge it.
When you are ready to start that business, lose weight, create that life you will find a way. With Visalus and my weight loss, I signed up last year and it didn’t click for me. I would talk the talk, but I was not walking the walk and it took me having my AHA moment and writing down my why for me to get motivated. I was reading a self-help and I remember reading that I was failing because I was not trying. I could play it safe and do what I was normally doing and living the social norm that was comfortable for us, but I was/am not satisfied with that. Since I wasn’t satisfied and I wasn’t attempting to create my dreams, I was failing. How could I teach my kids to go for their dreams? How can I tell them they can be anything they want if I’m not going after what I want? I would sound like a hypocrite.
Don’t let that voice inside your tell continue to tell that you’re not ready. Stop being afraid! I mean, seriously, do you know how awesome you are? I cannot lose weight for you, I cannot create that business that you want or create the life that you want. No matter how much I want to jump through this computer screen and shake some sense in to you, I cannot. What I can do is tell you that if you want to be ready, you will be ready. If you believe you can lose weight and need help, I am here. If you want to create a business for you, that would create residual income and give you the ability to travel, live and create your dreams, I am here too. I cannot force you to do it, especially if you aren’t ready.
Remember, the only person holding you back is you and your self-talk. What are you going to tell yourself today?
