Day 19 – Turn Your Shine On
“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life” ~ Steve Jobs
“You can’t do that!”
“Who do you think you are?”
And with hearing those words, you shrink back and play safe.
Your inner voice means well, she’s there to protect you, to ensure your survival.
But I’m guessing, as you’re on this journey with me, you don’t want to merely survive, you are ready to THRIVE!
Every moment we are presented with an opportunity where we have to make a decision. Often we do this subconsciously, but I want this to stop.
I want you to make conscious decisions.
A decision that fully supports you and your own personal development and I’m going to show you how and you will laugh that it’s so simple!
I was recently asked to go to London to make some raw food recipes for the World’s largest ‘How To…’ internet video site.
Of course my instinct was to scream ‘No! Not a chance! – You’re not getting me in front of a camera!”
My mind was racing and coming up with the best reasons why I shouldn’t do it and I have to admit she was convincing!
Now as many of you know, I actually said yes. Not just once but three times!
So how did I convince my inner voice/protector that this would be a good idea for me?
Instead of making the decision from where I currently was. I thought about what it was I wanted to achieve with my business and I thought to myself if I was in that position now and was asked that question, what would I say? And of course the answer was a yes!
I turned up in London, spent the day filming and had a wonderful time and met many great people – I would definitely class this as a success story!
The same is true of your food choices.
First let me start by saying, it doesn’t matter what choice you make, just make it consciously.
So if you are craving a piece of chocolate gateaux and it seems the perfect thing for you in this moment – just take a moment to pause…
Reflect on your longer term goals, perhaps you want to feel great, loose weight, feel sexy and confident
Now put yourself in the position of living what you are working towards, yes that may mean that you have to do some pretending, but go with it and have fun!
If you were your ideal weight, were feeling sexy and confident, looked fabulous and felt great etc what would your decision be; would you say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to that chocolate gateaux?
You have to be the one to decide that you are going to be successful and you can start to make successful choices from that place, even before you actually get there!
