Small changes over time make a big difference
Consistency is the real key to change
In our fast paced world, we tend to expect immediacy. It’s kind of funny, but there was a commercial recently where different folks did one thing; one push-up, one squat etc. That was it. Like “I did my one thing. I’m done”.
We easily expect instant results.
I bet you can relate to all of these! Keep reading below…
Here’s a hilarious personal example: I mean my GOSH, have you ever called your cable company for help? I would hate for you all to see me making a support call. Although second thought, you’d surely find it extremely funny! I first get frustrated at the automated assistant that continues to repeat “I’m sorry, I didn’t get that” when I answer as clearly and slowly as I can. Impatience getting the best of me, I end up raising my voice to get myself heard, even when I know it doesn’t matter. The computer is not going to care. The last time I called, frustrated that it could not understand me, then frustrated at the time I’m wasting, I finally repeated “representative” over and over until the thing responded something like “I’m sorry I didn’t get that, let me connect you to a representative”. Ha! I got what I wanted; to talk to a real person!
Okay, I confess. I despise calling them for two reasons, the time it takes (or wastes) and frustration over the automated communication.
Bottom line – I’m programmed to want and expect immediate results. “Like come on, can’t you just fix my cable box.” Instead, I have to go through the troubleshooting steps. It’s a pain, but necessary to get resolution.
Bring this back to our real world, our bodies and our health. It’s okay to want fast results, but don’t beat yourself up for that. If you do, forgive yourself! Don’t be so hard on yourself! How we got where we are took time and it’s going to take time to change that. Accept it. The truth is small consistent steps are your key to the best, long term results. Have you ever heard “how do you eat an elephant?” If you have, you know what I mean. If you haven’t, just google it and see. I’m here to tell you, I will stand by you and give you all the encouragement I can possibly give! The reason I’m doing what I am is to encourage and inspire you to be the best “you” you can be. A bit of a tongue twister but I sincerely mean it! That’s just my heart to yours.
