Can personal development accelerate your weight-loss?
Darren Hardy, Publisher of Success Magazine told a story that illustrates this:
“There’s an old Cherokee tale. A grandfather is talking to his grandson and says, “Grandson inside each of us are two wolfs. They are at war with each other and one wolf is a bad wolf. It’s angry, it’s fearful, it’s nasty, it’s lazy. And then there is a good wolf who is giving, and loving, and abundant, and disciplined”
The grandchild looks up at the grandfather and says, “Well which wolf is going to win?”
The grandfather smiles and says, “Whichever you feed”
We have to realize that we have the capacity for both. And for some of us one of these has been fed way too much compared to the other.
Which one have you been feeding? Obviously we all want to aspire to the one but...
Where Have You Honestly
Been Playing At?
If you have not been on the right track, use this as an excuse to course correct just like a plane does when it’s not going in the right direction.
Use this as a new opportunity to recognize you have not been as focused and deliberate about feeding the side of you that is going to give you the body, the energy, the freedom, the vitality that you want.
When it comes to weight-loss one of the biggest realizations in my life working with hundreds of clients is that it is so much more than knowing the right exercise and nutrition information. It’s by far more than that…
It’s About Developing Ourselves.
It’s mastering ourselves, mastering our psychology, mastering the parts of ourselves where we do our absolute best work and pushing aside the parts of us that hold us back and do not lead to fulfillment or accomplishment.
Take time today to write out what kind of person would I have to become in order to accomplish my weight-loss or fitness goal?
Is that person someone who is determined? Passionate? Organized?
I don’t know what it is for you but what I do know is that if you start living into those qualities you will accelerate the results you have by several fold.
