Take a look at the picture that is with this blog and ask yourself.....Is this me?
This pattern plays out in so many different aspects of life...
Such a dieting, quitting smoking, getting fit, starting up new things...just to name a few
We start of like a bat out of hell with the greatest intention then we crash and burn...
After doing this a few times and with our self-esteem in the gutter we give up and convince ourselves that we are a failure and we are not good enough to achieve these great things that we see others achieving. Therefore we are useless, worthless and definitely not enough.
If we follow this pattern of behaviour often enough we will develop anxiety and depression.
So, how do you break this cycle?
By changing the strategy.
Why do we have to lose x amount of kgs in 3 months? Why can't we just become more mindful of what we put in our mouth?
Who says that we have to give up smoking immediately? Try cutting down your daily consumption by 1 cigarette a month, over a year you will be smoking 12 less, and when you have the confidence to know you can do that, you can eventually cut down to one a day.
Instead of parking in the nearest space to the shop, park on the other side of town and walk to the shops, or work?
But, how do we make these changes when our self-esteem is in the gutter and we feel like we are crap at everything?
We build our self-esteem - and here is the link to how you can do that in 3 easy to understand steps...
Then we take the next step and then next...
One step at a time.
Because when we see this as a journey and not a sprint we can give ourselves the time and not burn out...
Because life is a journey, it is not something to be rushed through or hurried, but for some bizarre reason we feel that it all has to be done immediately, right now!
I am a Professional Personal Development Coach and I assist others in their journey... I know where they are and how they feel because I have been there... However, I made a promise to myself one day, that that day I was not going to live like this anymore....
I learned how to do all of those things I have just mentioned and many more.
I am living, walking, talking proof that it can be done. If I can do it, then so can you.

Life doesn't have to be shit, but it does take effort and commitment for it not to be shit.
