Know your WHY
BEFORE we start talking about WHAT simple changes we want to make in our lives, we to talk about the WHY behind those changes. If your WHY isn't bigger than your excuses, then you are not going to succeed.
The “why of the why"
For many people, they can easily come up with "why" they are doing something: "Because I want to get healthier," "Becaue I want to feel better," "Because I know I need to change," etc. But the real challenge is to explain the why of the why. - WHY do you want to get healthier? - WHY do you want to feel better? - WHY do you need to change?
The more we can tap into the why of the why, the less likely excuses and disappointments along the way will distract us.
For me, I want to make One Simple Change to get healthier. I want to get healthier for my family. I believe I have a responsibility to take care of myself for them. I also believe my body is a gift that was given to me, and I want to take care of that gift. Lastly, I know that when I take care of my body, I just feel better. I'm happier. And so, for all those reasons, I'm making One Simple Change
Share your WHY
When making a resolution, one of the most important things to do is to share it with others. This gives you accountability, but it also helps encourage others to join you! If you'd like to be a part of our secret FB OSC community connect with me on Twitter on Instagram @tomlelyo
Remember, you can make one simple change to change your life, or you can make excuses - but you can’t do both!
