Everybody wants the magic bullet. Our culture expects quick fixes. Sadly, when quick changes happen, they don’t last long term. See the diets, amazing ab machines, magic pills or fat-burners for what they are. Save your money and time on all these quick-fix products… they only create false hopes.
You probably already know what you need to do yet… you’re not doing it! Here is the problem with thinking you know everything. If you were told you should drink more water or eat more vegetables, your first response might be... "I know that."
You instantly shut down your brain when you have heard something before, especially when it involves a behavior change and leaving your comfort zone.
Without being receptive to the learning, a behavioral change will not happen. Change requires not being you. Tell yourself: "If I have to change, I need to stop being me." You are capable of not being you, but you need to learn how... in consistent small doses over time. That's how habits change, and ultimately results occur.
The stories you don't always hear or want to hear about the people who create long-term success, is they got out of their comfort zone, stayed focused, and changed. When they had a setback, they did not stay immobilized, they got up and got back on track.
