No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
To sustain you through the hard times, you have to find your deep motivation--your Why. Your Why is probably not what you think it is. It is not usually related to appearance. Whatever it is, it needs to be vivid and we need to make it crystal clear and able to be summoned at the smallest need.Human beings like homeostasis--that is, we like things to stay the same. Even if a situation is uncomfortable, painful, or embarrassing, we quickly develop coping skills to deal with them, because our reluctance to change is stronger than our desire to have the new outcome. Often times, things have gotten progressively worse but we haven't noticed how bad it's gotten because we are constantly adapting to the new conditions. Just like the frog doesn't notice the water getting hotter and hotter until it is too late.
To combat this, we need to turn up the heat in our lives. We need to heap pain on the status quo, the current situation that is bad, but that we have gotten used to. And then we need to heap excitement on the new situation to help us get motivated and provide us the energy to change.
We can accomplish both of these through a technique called Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP. Answer the series of questions below, as I did in the video. Be sure to feel the emotions, in the present tense, and make it as detailed and realistic as possible. In the end, you should end up very ready for change, very excited to get started, and more than anything, you will absolutely know your Why.
Let's get started!
Ok my friends, you have your Why. Go forth and do great things! If you want to, share your Why in the comments.
