You know the ‘how-to’ of healthy eating and exercise-so why are you still living in a state of health that you're unhappy with?
In my experience, people have ‘unwanted’ health for very specific reasons. These reasons are subconscious, which is where things get tricky.
Self-sabotage is your subconscious way of protecting yourself.
Sounds crazy, but it makes sense when you realise that it is a defence mechanism meant to keep things in your life from changing.
You say that you want to improve overall health and feel amazing, but your subconscious is pulling the strings behind the scenes, keeping your goals just out of reach.
As long as your subconscious believes that you are safer being out-of-shape, then you'll be stuck.
Your most valiant efforts will be undermined by self-sabotage every single time.
Frustrating, right? But don't give up.
There's a way to turn everything around, and it all starts with finding out the reason that your subconscious views being out-of-shape as being safe.
Once you turn the light on to that reason, it will no longer have any power over you.
So, let's dig around for your reason.
• Do you believe...Change is bad? It’s common to fear the unknown, but this could very well be the reason that you’re not reaching your goal. Being comfortable with where you are today could be the reason that you sabotage your efforts to improve your life through change.
• Do you believe...Success will bring loss? If you met your health goal, would it bring out resentment and jealousy in your friends and family? Are they counting on you to be the ‘unhealthy one’?
• Do you believe...You don’t deserve it? Has someone in your life made you believe that you aren’t worthy of success? Or that they wouldn’t accept you if you were more successful than they are?
• Do you believe...You’re not capable? Are you unable to imagine yourself being healthy and fit? Does the possibility of achieving your goal not seem real?
Spend time thinking about these tough questions and discover why it is that you aren’t meeting your goals. Once your whole mind is primed for success, then nothing will be able to stop you.
