What if I can’t do it??

What if I can’t do it?

“I can’t do it”

My now 5 year old will say…

Referring to her numbers homework.

To which I remind her about all of the times before she’s said “I can’t”

^^ and it’s a good thing for all of us to do, too

I even said

Remember when you couldn’t get yourself changed?

You couldn’t put your shoes on

You couldn’t put your socks on 

I could go on.

But we start to (in general) fear the “I can’t” a bit less.

And actually – perhaps – even look forward to it.

Because the more “I can’t” situations you face

The more likely you are to get a huge breakthrough and transformation..

^^ remember that

But to get through this?

We have to stop living in the “gap” between the present and future

Past <—>Present<—>Future 

It’s fine to be there.

As this is where you’ll get motivation and inspiration from .

You know, that big goal, be it dropping a few dress sizes, being less out of breath, mental health, being able to get up and down from the floor, worry less about getting ill, feeling in control of your food again  ..

Whatever it is.

But we are leaving confidence on the table if we never look back.

Look back at how far we have come.

“What’s working well?”

“What would you like to improve?”

It’s actually something we use in our accountability system inside the Kickstart programme for women 40+ and 50+  (reply with “kickstart” and I’ll get you the details.

So that even when obstacles come up?

We can approach it from a positive space. 

And although this sounds really “woo woo“

You have to remember that we are programmed to look for the negative…

And it’s this little switch which can give you the confidence and courage to keep going for long enough to get the results you want.

After all, where you are right now is often a direct result of your habits.

Good news?

Where you want to be is based on your habits TODAY 😃
