Do you have any burning desires that propel you forward and get you excited about waking up and starting another day? Or do you feel like you’re just going through the motions each day?
Do you regularly set and review goals for yourself?
People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals - that is, goals that do not inspire them.
If not, it may be time to learn some new things and set some new goals for yourself.
Overeating can be a smokescreen for a lack of other consuming passions, goals, hobbies, and interests in your life. Exciting goals energize you and provide you with strong motivation and a compelling focus. Once you shift your focus into a new area, you’d be amazed how the obsessive thoughts about food and weight begin to disappear.
If you’re feeling stagnant, the best thing you can do is to surround yourself with people who encourage your growth. We all need role models, teachers, and mentors. Find people who have what you desire and open your mind to their wisdom, ways of doing things, and their perspectives on life.
When we're no longer learning and growing, we begin to die spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. A closed mind is like a dusty, shut up old room that never gets any fresh air. Keep the windows of your mind open and let the breezes of new ideas freshen and illuminate your mind.
Take a class; take a trip somewhere new; explore a new hobby; go on a drive; or read some new books on a subject that interests you. You might even try taking a social media and/or internet break for a few days. As you move beyond your habitual ways of living and being, notice how you come alive and become re-energized about life.
If you're ready to move beyond food, weight, and dieting, my How You do Food is How You do Life Coaching Program will be starting on September 16th. If you can't make the live calls on that date or time, the recordings are emailed out with the assignments the next day.
