If we’re being really honest here, the fact is that most people know –
- What foods are nourishing to their body.⠀
- That they should practice daily movement.⠀
- That they are super overwhelmed and should reduce stress.⠀
- They numb out with food and alcohol and this is an issue.⠀
- They should save more and spend less money.⠀
- Know what they need to do to reach their goals.⠀
The list goes on and on…..⠀
The biggest problem that prevents people from meeting their goals, and pretty much the real cause of their daily suffering, is that they are not able (or willing) to take action on what they know. Or, perhaps they do take some sort of action, but it’s an action that is a non-essential one and is not going to actually help them move forward. Here’s a classic example…
Have you ever decided you wanted to start a workout regimen? You might have gotten this big wave of inspiration and felt like you were really ready to stick it this time so the first thing you do is… buy a new workout outfit. Then, that outfit maybe sees itself through one or two workouts before getting tucked to the back of your closet. Does this sound familiar? For many, it does! Dishing out money in order to feel like we’re making progress is the easy part. Sticking to workouts that leave you drenched in sweat and out of breath, not so much.
There could be many reasons why the example above fell through though. Maybe being at the gym surrounded by people who look like they know what their doing while you fumble your way through a few machines is intimidating. But that still doesn’t change the fact that you know you should be putting in the work.
Maybe you’re going through a period of burnout at work and you know you should try to take a day off or not work late into the night, but the thought of letting go or missing an important email is stressful! But that still doesn’t change the fact that you know you won’t be able to maintain that workload forever.
We all know what we need to do, but we procrastinate, make excuses and let our fear of failure and judgment cripple our action.⠀
Enough is enough.
Simply knowing is not enough.
You must take action in order to get to where you want to be in life. So tell me, what are you going to choose? What is your next step?⠀
