There’s something interesting I discover when I think of the things I want versus the things I have; they don’t match up.
I want the six-pack. I want the BQ. I want to lose a little bit more weight – not a lot, but a little bit. I want to be more confident. I want to study. I want to follow through. I want.. I want.. I want..
But if you were to measure the desires I have in my life by what I actually have in my life, I don’t actually ‘want’ ANY of those things.
Not even close.
The decisions I’m making actually subvert the things I say I want. I eat the wrong things. I doubt myself and listen to the same tired negative script about myself that I’ve been listening to my whole life. I absolutely LOATHE core work. I don’t set asie time to study.
How can I possibly say I want these things, when I don’t affirm that desire with all the little decisions necessary to make those ‘dreams’ come true?
As far as weight gain, I discovered this youtube channel about people who have gained over 600 pounds. They’re enormous. And if you start watching these videos, a thread emerges; they ALL say, ‘I want to lose the weight’, but they ALL cheat on their prescribed diets.
It’s never been clearer.
