This week has certainly been a whirlwind! Looking back at last week I was in a state of not content with everything I had done so far in my life. This feeling was amplified when I experienced a very stressful weekend which believe it or not lead me to have a clear mind. I had clarity. I knew what I wanted to do and I had to go get it done.
When you are in a negative state of mind, such as being confused, upset, flat or sad, you must listen to your mind and body are telling you. They are simply saying you must change this feeling, understand the cause and to resolve it. But rather we choose to fuel this negative mindset with junk food, gambling and alcohol abuse which will cause a major negative impact on your health (physical, social and mental).
PAIN = CHANGE
I remember Mr Tony Robbins, the motivational guru said that pain is great. Why? Because when there is pain it sparks a feeling of change. For example, say you have a heavy smoke addiction where you spend $200-400/week on cigarettes, you would most likely continue with this behaviour because it is “okay” as your body has yet to object. However when a major health incident occurs such as a heart attack or you cough blood – hopefully this ‘pain’ will cause you to be scared of the outcome if you didn’t stop smoking and thus will allow you to MAKE THAT CHANGE – throw the pack in the bin and vow to stop.
CHANGE STARTS TODAY.
The first step as you know is always the hardest. It really is. Like the change I had committed to 4 days ago. Commit to changing/improving one thing in your life, no matter how big or small still means progress.
