Everything worth committing to is going to have messy bits.
A lot of people say they are committed at the beginning of their journey but really they are just trying the thing on until it gets uncomfortable.
This is how commitment usually works in the health arena for most people:
💥Inspiration strikes: “I am going to change my life, by golly!”
💪Commit to a new behavior: Drink more water, get more sleep, eat more veggies, etc.
😞Novelty starts to fade: “This isn’t so exciting anymore.”
🤔Quit or Recommit: This is where you get to see how committed you really are.
Recommitting day after day when things aren’t so fun and exciting is where the magic actually happens.
Everything worth committing to is going to have messy bits and if you don’t have a regular practice for refocusing your attention on why you started in the first place – you will not recommit and you will use those messy bits as rationale for quitting.
This is why it is SO stinking important that you start small, you learn to enjoy your process and you develop practices that help you keep your focus on the long game.
IT IS TIME,
you incredible human.
