Most of us are waiting for something good to happen to be committed…but the truth is that the good stuff lies on the other side of your commitment.
Do you know the difference between making a decision and actually deciding?
Lots of us have made the decision to DO something but haven’t actually decided to BE it…to own it.
How many people have made the decision to get married but have not actually decided to be married?
How many people have made the decision to get in shape but not actually decided to be in shape?
We’ve all been there…
How many times have you made the decision to do something but never truly decided to be it, to live it, to be fully and wholeheartedly committed to it?
In fact, do you know what the definition of decide is?
[De·cide: come to a resolution in the mind as a result of consideration.]
“Cide” in Latin literally means – to cut off or kill.
When you’ve decided, it means you’ve literally cut off any other options.
And one of the lessons we adopt early on in the Smart Nutrition Coaching Program is the ability and importance of deciding to become a different person. To identify as someone who enjoys being healthy, active, and physically fit.
We don’t serve our clients by helping them obsess about arbitrary weight loss goals or macro plans…
We serve them by talking about what could be possible.
WHEN you lose that weight, because you will, then what else could you do?
WHEN you feel more confident and have the energy to be an active participant in your kids’ life, then what else could you do?
Imagine a life where your health and fitness propel you instead of holding you back…
WHAT COULD BE POSSIBLE FOR YOU?
And the only way we can lean into possibility is by helping them decide to embrace the challenges in front of them…
So that there’s no other choice but to move forward.
Because the cost of not making change is far more painful than what they’ll experience in defining who they are and who they need to become.
“Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
Most of us are just not bold enough to decide and commit to what we know is right.
