Motivation and why you have none!

“Why do I start highly motivated but loose it quickly?”

MOST people who set exciting new years resolutions will have broken their intentions and let their goals slide by the 15th of January.

15 days and they are back to doing what they have always done to get what they’ve always got. REALLY these should be NY wishes rather than goals or Intensions.

The thing is, people decide, enough is enough. I’m going to change this and that. They then sit back and ‘wish’ it would happen. They don’t consciously think this of course. They do ‘try’. They try for 15 days and then their normal patterns that we repeat in our lives over and over again since we were about 2 years old come back just like every other time we attempted change.

For the people who do go further than 15 days or those that even get to their goals, why do they still loose motivation and stuff it all up? This can usually be summed up in one simple word – FEAR.

– Afraid of upsetting people
– Afraid of loosing people close to them
– Afraid of what it will change
– Afraid of failing itself

If you are someone who has felt fear from achievement or fear for trying then I would want to look at your self belief – WHY are you not backing yourself. Why are these thoughts in control of you?

I don’t feel motivated all the time. No way, there are many, many days where I feel like throwing in the towel on everything I’m creating. What gets me through this? What’s my secret to keep going and the secret of my high achieving clients?
Everyday I set clear intentions about what I want. My 2016 goals are written in the front of my diary that I look at everyday. I write at 5.30-6.00am everyday about what I’m going to do that day, I clearly set my intensions and I also write about what I’m feeling and why.

This sets me up well. From there I listen to something motivating. Type into YouTube Inspiration and you’ll be flooded with goodness.

I exercise everyday to energise my body and build physical strength and resilience.

Lastly and the one that I think has been forgotten by many including myself in the past is DISCIPLINE.
On the days you don’t feel like it YOU DO IT ANYWAY.

DO WHAT EVER YOU HAVE TO DO EVERYDAY TO CLIMB THE LADDER TO YOUR ULTIMATE GOALS.

Here’s the thing. To change you have to become the person that would get the results you are after. I’m not saying change who you are I’m saying remove the fog that keeps you stuck and unleash who you naturally feel you are or practice daily who you want to be until it sticks.

Life’s to short to be stuck in ways that don’t serve you. Decide and do it!

Lose weight fast and keep it off

ALL revealed here!

Here’s what NOT to do to lose weight fast and keep it off;

– Diet. Restricting yourself will do nothing but make you a mad human being who needs to eat anything and everything in site. Will power may last a couple of years if you’re very lucky but it won’t last forever.

– Think weight loss should be a restrictive, forced process. HELL NO. It should feel natural, empowering and exciting!

– Eat low fat, no carb, just lean protein. NO, your body needs ALL nutrients, vitamins and minerals. If it doesn’t get them it will quickly start to perform poorly and you’re creating long term damage that you will pay for literally.

– Use exercise as punishment for that binge or for eating to much that day. Think – how will punishing your body from the wrong place encourage it to change?

– Don’t go hungry! Eat regularly, vegetables at every meal, eat food you love (alter naughty recipes if it’s bad). Enjoy your food! Life’s to short not to!

– Don’t stress if you mess up! You’re a human right? You WILL mess up then! Brush it off and keep going!

– Work out WHY you punish yourself with food and sabotage. TRULY. Do you rely on food emotionally?

Here’s what you HAVE to do to lose weight fast and keep it off;

– LEARN about food and cooking. I don’t mean become a nutritionist, I mean go to a professional and get educated on what you need and what you don’t. Take control over what you put in your body.

– Make exercise your ‘YOU’ time. It’s the time you go away and work on making you fitter, stronger and mentally clear. Use exercise as your happy drug, make it fun and rewarding!

– Love and self respect MUST come before weight loss. Hating your body will do nothing but attract more punishment and more sabotage. Your body has done so much for you and is keeping you alive right now so RESPECT It!

– Be consistent! Food and exercise MUST be part of your daily routine. Book it in. Make it happen. One good week won’t outweigh 3 bad ones.

– Become an organisation freak! YES, you need this. In this busy world we live in we are all frantic and we all full at the feet of convenience. Prepare your food. Do large cook ups, book in your training times, book in meetings and time blocks to get stuff done at work. You can’t miss this step! It feels very rewarding taking charge of all areas of your life.

– Lastly. Ditch the ‘mummy’ guilt. Or ‘women’ guilt. Get past the fear and realise that this is YOUR LIFE. You attract all your receive. You are powerful and you DESERVE to be the best version of you for loved ones and yourself!

No diets, no ‘health’ shakes MLM, no pills. They WILL screw you eventually. Be the lab rat if you wish.

Take control of YOU!
