New Year, New Diet, New You? Are you about to make yet another New Year resolution, as you see out the old year, along with it’s broken promises and failed, good intentions?
Fresh with new found conviction, after the gross excesses of the Christmas period and our usual failure to control ourselves, we arrive at the new year’s resolution, an annual triumph of hope over reality!
Hope, that this time you will have the single mindedness to succeed, where last time you failed. I’m not suggesting for a moment that you do not want to succeed, I’m sure that your desire to lose weight is genuine, but here is the reality, it is a hope, a dream and what is the point in having dreams if you’re not going to make them happen?
You may dream of winning the lottery and yes, you could win! But it is down to chance and you have a better chance of flying to the moon, than of winning the lottery.
Making a real change to your life? Well that is a dream you can, make happen! And you can start right here, right now.
The problem with new year’s resolutions, lies in the forward planning. Moving towards a significant target date in your life, to contemplate doing something that you know is going to be a struggle.
Of course you’re not looking forward to it! What do you expect? As you begin to experience a steady build-up of expectations, leading up to the big day when you’re finally going to start putting right everything that’s wrong with your life!
No pressure there then! I’m sure you’ll feel ready to start on that day!
In the meantime of course, you now have the perfect excuse to behave badly, because it doesn’t really matter if you let yourself go over Christmas does it? You can do everything to excess. It won’t matter if you put on a few extra pounds! After all, you deserve to have one last binge before the deprivations of the coming year ahead!
If you believe that, then you’re delusionary. You’re just fooling yourself because it makes you feel better at the moment. It’s the high, before the deep low that will inevitably follow and damage your self-esteem, sabotaging your chance of success even before you start.
Wake up and smell the coffee!!
Do you really want to lose weight? Then do something about it, NOW!
Clear the cupboards of all the things that you know are bad for you, NOW!
Don’t eat them! If you think waste is bad, box them up and give them to charity.
Do it NOW as you read this blog.
Don’t put it off until tomorrow, because tomorrow never comes!
How we think and feel about ourselves is often the difference between happiness and success, or frustration and failure, therefore success and real lasting changes, only comes from changing the way we think. We are all products of our own thinking.
So, every thought we think has an impact on us. We respond to our negative thoughts and to our positive thoughts. If you have a history of failing to live up to your own expectations, your memories are loaded with negative programming.
No matter how much conscious effort you put into changing your habits, your subconscious mind is flooding your body with negative messages that have been ingrained for years.
You can however, change the way you think about losing weight using the help of God and having faith.
Many people trying to lose weight struggle to maintain willpower. They feel that they need help and are often too embarrassed to admit to anyone that they have a problem. Now, many sufferers of low motivation and low self-esteem, are benefiting from building a relationship with God, which can literally change peoples lives for the better.
Your life will improve if you begin to believe in something that is bigger than you and your abilities. You will feel refreshed that you don’t have to do it alone, giving you that extra boost to increase motivation, and your enthusiasm will increase noticeably. Some people say it feels like magic because it is so easy to make powerful changes. God simply allows you to access the resources you already have within you.
Desire to make changes is good. Taking action to start something is even better. Lets assume that you’ve decided right now, to start making the changes that you want. If you have tried before and failed, you need a support structure put into place as quickly as possible, to help you to maintain your resolve and to keep your thought processes focused on your goals. Beginning reading the bible and learning what has already been given to you. Pray and meditate on what you need assistance with. Then follow it up with having faith that the things, which trouble you will begin to no longer. Put in the work.
You can lose weight and I’m sure that your eating program of choice will be right for you. You will have success this time if you make sure that you put in the work and stay faithful.
So, don’t wait, decide to start making the changes that you want to make in your life, now!
