Another way to do this is you can face the consquences of not changing. When I was growing up I noticed most people around me were unhealthy, unhappy and unfulfilled. I asked myself, ‘Is that what I want—do I really want to end up being 35 and moving in the wrong direction?’
The answer I gave myself when I was about 23 was no.
I didn’t want that. I didn’t want to be that person at 50 with a big gut and sore back and a life that felt almost over rather than halfway over.
So I used the pain I felt around an unfulfilled future to motivate me to go on this journey of coaching. I started to educate myself and read books and go to seminars. I connected with people who had the results I wanted instead of listening to those who didn’t.
I trust this gives you a bit of inspiration when it comes to achieving your goals, facing the consequences of not achieving the goal.
Don’t live in the la la land world of ‘it will be okay’. Sometimes it won’t be okay. It’s a healthy thing to face that, move towards the pleasure and let that motivate you to do something different.
