We all know the ‘quick fix’ solution to weight loss doesn’t work, right? I hope you said, “yes”, because it doesn’t! Yet that doesn’t seem to stop that the flood of diet pills and overnight detox systems that are popping up everywhere in social and mass media alike. It surprises me that people buy into that stuff, but then again I realise how desperate we all feel when we want something to change and we want it now!
Trouble is that when the diet pills don’t work, you then feel bad. You then eat more. You then get mad. And so the cycle goes. But let’s stop. Let’s slow down for a minute and take a look at what’s really missing in your life (if anything).
The Office Of Positive Change
What I’d like you to find is a healthier mindset. A more positive outlook. A stronger belief in yourself. I’d like you to start viewing yourself as someone who is powerful, productive, capable, tenacious and knowledgable. I’d like you to see yourself as someone who can find the answers to your weight loss goals by looking within. By being open to change. By being willing to learn new habits, new behaviours and new ways to view the world. A pill can’t do that.
Maybe more information is what you’re looking for. Then, great, do some research. Find a mentor. Learn more.
Or just maybe you already know what to do and are just waiting for the right time to do it. With most of us, this second possibility is often a reality. Okay, so maybe the waiting time is over. That’s it…your name has been called and you are now officially, inside The Office Of Positive Change. Take a look around. Say “hi” to the others here. You’re not alone.
Furthermore now that you’re here, recognise that you’re actually way ahead of the herd. Way ahead of all those people, who haven’t even started searching for a solution to their weight loss issues.
So stay here! The Office Of Positive Change doesn’t close. It’s door is open 24/7. You have your own clipboard here too. Somewhere you can record every little change you make. I can’t see anything on your clipboard yet, however. Relax, it won’t take you long though. In fact, if you take a walk today….just 20 or 30 minutes or even just 10 minutes, your body will have started to respond and you can notch this positive change up on your clipboard!
I’d love to hear what small changes you may have decided to make today. If you’d like to make a public committment to that change then drop me a comment and declare your committment!
That can be a little scary, I know, but it is also an extremely effective way to stay accountable and make the change stick. You can then let us all know in perhaps one week’s time, how you’re still going with that habit change. How ’bout it? Can you think of one bad habit you’d like to change?
