I love results! Who doesn’t! It’s a great feeling when you have lost a few pounds, learned something you never knew, accomplished a task you have been working towards, or finally running in that 5k or half marathon that you have always wanted to run. Getting results give us a great feeling, a feeling of accomplishment, a feeling of moving forward, a feeling of making a positive change in our lives.
I had a moment of inspiration this morning about this exact subject. While we love the feeling of accomplishment, and making things happen in our lives, many times we are not willing to invest in “the one thing” that will provide the greatest amount of growth – GETTING HELP.
I have experienced this first hand in my life. I knew in order to get a job, I needed an education so I went to school. I knew when I wanted to become a Life Coach that I needed training, so I did what it took to get my certification. Education seems to be a no brainer when we need to receive that diploma or certificate. But what about our health? What about our interests? What about the direction of our life as a whole? If you are like me, I’ve tried to do it myself, and have just muddled through.
Most of us have heard the common definition of insanity. Insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different result.” We all have done this at one time or the other.
In order to break the insanity cycle, the key is this: If something thing is not working, try something else.
In 2014 I tried something else. I got help.
I have been working for quite a few years now to get into better physical “shape”. I will be turning 42 in the next few weeks and I want to continue to be active and vibrant as I go through my 40’s, 50’s and into my 80’s and 90’s. I knew the only way for me to be vibrant throughout my life is to work on being strong and less fragile now. I have tried many programs and have found some success, but it has been minimal. For me, I continued to hit a wall and could not get over it.
IT ALL CHANGED THIS YEAR by making one simple change, I am getting help from a professional in the field of physical fitness. As of yesterday, I have been working out with a personal trainer for 3 short months and I have advanced more than I have in ALL of the years that I have been trying to do it myself.
Did you get that? In three short months, I have advance more than I have in all of the years prior to that!
By making one change, getting professional help.
The same is true for my life as a whole. Since I hired a Life Coach, I have made more changes in my life for the better. Again, I tried to do it by myself, but the last three years of being coached have created MAJOR CHANGE for the better in my life. All because I got help from a professional.
Today, if you want to see real change, faster results, and the feeling of moving forward in your life, invest in obtaining professional help:
- If you want to lose weight, there are people and companies that specialize in weight loss!
- If you want to get into shape, there are personal trainers that will help you reach your personal goals.
- If you want to be more financially secure, there are people and organizations out there to help you put a plan into place for financial success.
- If you want to dream of a great future for yourself, your significant other, your family, and put a plan together to make it happen, hire a Life Coach and you will move forward in those dreams!
You name the area you want to move forward in, there is a person or company out there ready to help you move forward.
But Jen….all of that costs a lot of money. You are absolutely right, but I am going to say it like it is. THAT’S A BIG OLD EXCUSE! You are spending your money somewhere. Take a look at where your money is going.
If you want to move forward in your life, you can and will make it happen. Period!
I can be the queen of excuses (trust me), but there is ALWAYS a way to move forward.
Henry Ford said it best: Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right!
What is different about my life? I “think I can” and am making change happen by getting HELP!
