How do you want to feel?

How do you want to feel?

Something I say a lot

Not just to the ladies we work with (and our team)

But to myself and my kids too..

Is that it is not about being perfect…

I mean..

The number of times my daughters (2 and 4 years old)

Say:

“I don’t want to ….”

The focus is always on how they don’t want to feel.

And if I argue with that?

I’ll lose.

So I have to flip it by focussing on something else in instead.

If they can’t go to the park right now..

I’ll focus on

What they CAN  do right now instead..

(Rather than focus more on why they cannot got the park).

Of course, I’ll tell them that but quickly move on..

As it doesn’t solve anything

And wastes a lot of energy…

And it is the same when it comes

To setbacks

Especially with food and exercise,

You know, not doing what we set out to do.

Be it from comfort eating

Not exercising when you said you would…

Thing is…

It is NOT about being perfect. 

Energy flows where your attention goes. 

if you focus on how you don’t want to feel.. 

guess what? 

You get more of how you do not want to feel… 

so consider how you WANT to feel. 

And ask: 

What are you willing to do to create that feeling today? 

^^ read that again.
