Do you keep packing and dragging or unpack and start fresh? Most people would say, "unpack and start fresh." That is until they open up their baggage and get a glimpse of what's inside. It can be overwhelming if you don't have the right tools. Most people don't even realize they're dragging around trunks full of junk. They make a New Years resolution or the decision to make changes in their lives thinking it'll be different this time. Then they unknowingly pick up their baggage and drag it all into their new desired lifestyle. Guess what? They get tired, the junk in the trunk rears its ugly head and back to square one we go. Been there? I have.
So how we unpack and move into lasting change? It's process. First, let me say that you can't move forward and have lasting change until you unpack and let go. If losing weight is your hearts desire, then you must start with transforming your mind. You can diet and exercise all you want or go to your Dr and get a pill but that junk in your trunk will sabotage your efforts. This applies to any area you want change. It could be finances and for whatever reason (junk in your trunk) you can't seem to prosper.
With all that being said, let's get back to the magic potion of creating lasting change. That's what we all want, is some quick magic or even a miracle from God so that we don't have to do any work. It's not your fault if you think that way, we live in a microwave society. We can get just about everything we want in a matter of minutes or days. The reality is, nothing great is free and easy. I do believe God does mighty miracles but I also know God and that there's blessing and a lot to learn in process. More often than not, He uses process. So I'm sorry to say, there is no magic potion. It is very possible to unpack and leave your baggage behind and enjoy a life you love.
The first step is realizing that you need to unpack in order to start fresh. Think about it. How many times have you tried to lose weight, or whatever it is, and you end up heavier and sicker than before? If you hear yourself saying, 'I can't," then you most definitely have some unpacking to do. I'm not saying you air your dirty laundry. That's not at all what you should do.
Get with a Coach or in a Coaching program that will focus on transforming your mind. This will help identify the root (trunk) and often times once a shift in mindset comes, it becomes really easy to throw that junk away.
Then you are clearer about how to move forward in a healthy way for you and experience lasting change. How would it be to live in health and happiness? It's your choice and while making that choice, remember, You are Worth It!
