Which way will you go? Have you ever thought you were on a different path and then realized your surroundings looked familiar? You go a little further and Bam, you're right back on the same mountain you were before. Looking back, there were several view points you had visited before but you were believing that this time, you would get the results you've wanted. I think it's safe to say that we've all been there, at least once. The older we get and if we haven't broken patterns, we stay on the same path, hoping for different results, but ending up in the same place we started from. The cycle continues and around the same mountain we go, picking up more and more self loathing and discouragement each time around. Can you relate?
Take a minute and look around. Does anything look familiar? If it does, I encourage you to stop and break the cycle before trying to move forward. Seriously, you can buy new hiking boots, backpack and a new compass but unless you step out and go to a different mountain all together, you'll end up in the same place.
Several years ago, when I was over weight, I decided to diet and exercise. To do what I had done before. When I failed time and time again, I discovered that I had to completely change my plan. I needed to go down a completely different path. My breakthrough came when I stepped out and focused on getting at the root . I needed to change my mindset and get new beliefs about me in place and once I did that, my transformation began and lasting change happened.
What area or areas do you need to break free from mindsets that keep you stuck and unable to get lasting change in? Once you identify those areas, it's time to work on your mindset and beliefs about yourself.
You have a choice to make. You can continue to get what you've always gotten and fall deeper into misery, or you can step out of your comfort zone and live a healthy happy life. So I ask again, which way will you go?
If you choose the comfortable path, the familiar road that leads you right back to where you are now, don't change a thing. Keep doing what you're doing. But if you're ready to get the results you've always wanted and succeed this time around, then put on those new hiking boots and get the tools and help you need. You're Worth It!
