So You Want To Feel And Look Better
I can certainly relate. If I know anything about human nature, it’s that most of us desire to feel good, and look hot.
In an instant we can be inspired to make changes and for the first 24 hours or so we are excited and motivated. It’s what happens after the novelty of deciding to make a change that sometimes keeps us stuck.
What I’ve realized over many years of experimenting on myself, is that all change is stressful, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth persevering through the stress, as there’s usually a light at the end of the tunnel.
What’s most important to understand when making changes that will ultimately make you feel better, is that you’re probably going to feel some deep emotional discomfort and it may cause you to doubt the path that you’ve decided to go down.
You may even feel like a part of you is dying. That fact is “Part Of You Is Dying!”
The part of you that’s dying is the part that was comfortable doing whatever you were doing before, even if it wasn’t in your best interest. What makes this more difficult is that part of you doesn’t want to die, and it’s going to tell you stories about why you’re better off continuing on doing what you were before. It’ll even tell you you’re going to lose the good parts of yourself.
So What’s The Good News About Persevering In The Face Of Doubt?
You must know that you are not going to lose the good parts of yourself from making beneficial changes. In fact, you’ll find that the parts of you that are authentic come to the surface more, and you’ll have more joy in your life as a result.
Once you get over the hump, you may find yourself feeling less numb, or noticing good things you noticed more in the past before you got stuck.
The best way I can describe the result of beneficial change is that it causes you to feel better overall. It’s like you’ve got something back that you lost.
