Seems like a no-brainer, doesn’t it? But how many times have you said to yourself, I wish I had this or I wish I was more that, or I’d really like to have or be this or that?? Almost anything is attainable (I said almost). But if you don’t try to do it, you’ll definitely never get there.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking recently about what stops people from going after what they think or feel that they want. What fears surround achieving those goals? People always say they want to lose weight – almost every single person I know wants to lose weight. And I know personally that there are about 150,000 reasons it’s tough (1. chocolate, 2. tacos, 3. pizza, 4. Halloween candy . . . and the list goes on and on) but I also know that for some people, there is a fear that stops them. Maybe it’s that you’re afraid people will look at you, maybe you’re worried you won’t be “the funny one” anymore. Losing weight is just one example. And it’s really hard to get to the bottom of those fears, seeing them, acknowledging them and then working against the fear to overcome and achieve your goals.
Have you ever thought about what you want and why you aren’t getting there? What’s holding you back?
