Does anything from this situation sound familiar?
You’re scrolling Instagram and find a before and after picture of a now fit, beautiful and blissfully calm lady talking about her transformational yoga habit.
And you think:
Damn, she sounds really happy, and apparently yoga helps calm your worries!
You need to start it now
In your excitement you head to Amazon, find a yoga mat, some blocks and a cute sports bra, and finally accept that “free” Prime delivery options to get them by tomorrow morning.
I can’t believe you’re doing this, it’s so exciting.
Before you know it you’ll be toned and sexy and flexible and happy!
You spend the rest of the evening finding yoga classes on Youtube, ready to start your dramatic transformation.
And girl do you throw yourself into it.
Every morning you’re up early, listening to badass music and moving through your yoga flows.
You’re killing it.
For a whole 5 days until you forget your alarm and miss a class…
Ughh, come on, don’t mess this up now. That belly isn’t going to work itself off.
Okay, let’s make a deal, take today off, but you must continue tomorrow
But tomorrow doesn’t come.
Before you know it, three weeks have passed and you’ve barely managed 3 more classes.
Your yoga mat remains rolled up in the corner gathering dust.
Why can’t you ever stay motivated?
Don’t you want to be like that girl in the picture?
Just do the damn yoga!
But you can’t.
As much as you struggle you can’t summon the drive you had just a few weeks ago.
The time, the effort, the schedule, it just seems like too much.
Why don’t you ever give a shit!?
Don’t you want to lose weight??
To be happy like that girl???
And then a new thought crosses your mind…..
Wait…. What do you give a shit about….?
Does her life actually connect with you?
The problem isn't that you lack motivation, it's that you don't deeply know WHY you should change your life.
Is something in your current life causing you pain?
But without doing the work to understand yourself, the stories and patterns running your life, you can’t make a deep connection with what life you truly desire.
Without help discovering who you truly are, you’ll never be able to maintain the motivation to change your life for long.
