“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.”
—William Hutchinson Murray
from The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951)
The New Year is upon us.
It’s a time when most of us make commitments about how we’re going to transform our lives and health.
It’s also a time when most of us start to make excuses about all the reasons we can’t follow through with our commitments:
I’ll eat better tomorrow.
I’ll spend less time on Facebook tomorrow, and more time preparing my meals, going for walks, or with my friends/partner/family.
I’ll get my butt to that yoga/Pilates/dance class next week.
Commitments and excuses seem to go hand in hand.
Somehow we manage to see time as if it’s in short supply for all our behaviors that don’t fulfill us, and yet we act as if we have all the time in the world to engage in practices that actually fulfill us.
The best time to take action is right now.
The only time to take action is right now.
So why do we feel so helpless to commit to transformation, even if we know doing so is in our best interest?
I’ll tell you this: the answer sure as hell doesn’t have anything to do with “willpower.”
As the ever-awesome ever-beloved poet Mary Oliver asked:
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
This is where it’s at, right here, right now.
I understand excuses. I understand life can feel overwhelming at times.
But I’ve also experienced how breathtakingly awesome I feel, and how much I leverage opportunity in my life when I push past my edge.
I also know when I don’t feel excited about something, I’m setting myself up to not honor commitments.
Excitement is a biggie. In fact, I’d say it’s the #1 most important factor when it comes to keeping commitments.
I mean, why would you ever feel excited about eating in a healthier way, and leading a healthier lifestyle if the things that are supposed to improve your health and lifestyle require deprivation, complicated tactics, and don’t hit that sweet spot of satisfaction?
I’m here to show you how to get so excited about transforming your body, health and lifestyle you don’t have to rely on willpower, and your commitment is continuously self-generated by the sheer force of magnetism to your newfound practices.
I’m here to show you how to seek out your edge like a heat-seeking missile seeks out its target.
This process took me over fifteen years to refine, but I nailed it down into the always delicious, ever empowering, science-based training program, TOTAL CRAVINGS CLEANSE: Your Ultimate Mind-Body Reboot.
