Knowledge is power. Information is king. Or is it? If you are reading this then you have access to virtually any piece of information you desire. Interested in knowing how to make balloon animals, stage your home to sell, build a rocket? The internet is there for you.
Many people, myself included, use the internet to find ways to enhance the experience they are having in their body, whether that means treating a disease or toning one’s muscles. My guess is that you have spent hours doing the same, and if not on the internet, than by reading books or reaching out to friends or paying to visit a medical professional.
If you have applied the knowledge you’ve gained and are living the experience you want to be living in the one body God gave you…ROCK ON! Keep up the great work!
If not, keep reading…
Most of us have tried diets, exercise programs, or supplements that have worked, for a period of time. We feel better, perhaps hit a health goal, become more optimistic about our future health and then - we “upper-limit”. We take on more at work, a family member becomes ill, we move, whatever. We get distracted, our commitment wanes and we veer off the growth-path. Something comes that throws us off. We feel frustrated, alone, and hopeless.
Later, you begin to question the information. Maybe you weren’t acquiring the right knowledge? You try something different, say Weight Watchers. And it’s working! You’re once again motivated and you say to yourself that you’re on your way to ever-improving health!
But then, the program ends, the self-sabotage sets back in, and you’re back to where you began...or maybe even worse. Sound familiar?
Why was my success not sustainable? Am I just inherently inconsistent or lacking in discipline? Am I just not motivated enough or goal-oriented enough? Why do I continue to fail when it comes to matters of my health?
