Stop the self-sabotage
It’s time to start the action after the discussion. There’s an adage, that we do a whole lot of talking and not a lot of action. I’ve found this to be increasingly correct over the years and it seems as if it’s not stopping anytime soon. You can chastise me all you want for saying it, but we all know that’s a dominant aspect in our society across the board.
You’ve sat there and had this great discussion about how important it is to get your health and fitness in order. Quite frankly, you’ve been given more tools to initiate this process than anyone can imagine, but you continuously never create the action.
Stop self-sabotaging your greatness!
Bear in mind it’s your health at risk. The more you procrastinate, the worse your co-morbidities increase and the hole you’ve dug yourself into becomes self-evident.
What’s our problem? Why do we excite ourselves with the idea of doing something and never follow through with it? At the end of the day, we’re not hurting anyone but ourselves and that thought alone should be enough to take action.
I’ve seen and heard more individuals talk themselves out of initiating a healthy lifestyle that I’m starting to believe we’re living in a state of delusion. We’re constantly telling ourselves one thing about our health and it’s clearly the opposite.
I’m quite fine with taking whatever negative criticism comes along with this column, because the reality is no matter how we pretty it up or tell it for what it is, we need to commit to action after the conversation.
We all like the glitz, the glamor and the shiny new things but we’re constantly forgetting all it took to obtain the glitz and the glamor.
Your excuses aren’t an endless road. One day they will run out and it’ll be at that moment when you realize there’s no more road left.
All the conversations you’ve had about starting a simple walk or making smarter food choices or being self-aware, about how you take care of your overall health will be the only thing staring you in the face.
The classic cliché that actions speak louder than words needs to be prevalent in this matter of your health and wellness. The thing about a classic is, it’ll never go out of style. It’ll always have that something that’s resounding about it.
May your road be filled with true implications of your conversations and you not be a negative health statistic when it’s all said and done.
