No magic pill...
There is no magic pill for hard work.
Day in and day out I have people come to see me wanting me to give them a pill to take it all away--stress, weight, fatigue, anxiety. And I can't do it. I won't do it.
I don't care what you're going through and what you want:
*to lose the weight and eat better
*to lower your stress level
*better relationships with others
*a better relationship with yourself
*get rid of Candida or Lyme or parasites
*facing anxiety or depression
*be an Olympic athlete
*build your business
*get a new job
*pay off debt
*just to name a few
It's all the same. You gotta make a plan and just do the work.
For so many years, I wanted everyone to do it for me. Friends. Lovers. Therapists. Dietitians. Trainers. Teachers. I wanted them to make it easy for me.
They didn't. And boy did I get mad. I acted out. I rebelled. I blamed everyone else. I almost got fired from what most would consider to be a good, stable, lifelong career---if I didn't walk out of it first.
In fact, I even lost the love of my life while in the midst of this tumult, angrily pointing the finger at him instead of honestly looking at myself in the mirror.
All because I didn't do the friggin work.
I get it now. I've had to have my life reduced to rubble multiple times before I saw I just had to zip my lips and do the work.
Maybe this resonates. Maybe it doesn't. But, all I know is that if you just get quiet and do the work, life looks so much better than being angry at everyone else all the time. Even if you are smacked down on your ass by an illness you didn't even see coming.
Each day you're presented with the choice--do you really want what you say you do? If so, put your money where your mouth is and get to it. If you don't really want it, move on to something else. There's no magic pill here.
