The process of change doesn’t feel good.
When you are asking for the result, you are really asking for the result of change, not the result alone. So many of us quit at the first sight of effort, because the excitement was around the result which comes at the end of the journey – not the beginning.
The perfect example of this would be the show Revenge Body by Khloe Kardashian. Each contestant wants the makeover, but then wants to quit the first few weeks and are completely surprised by how hard the process really is.
People quit the moment life becomes uncomfortable. The only way to change IS by getting uncomfortable.
You will never change without feeling uncomfortable.
In order to live a lifestyle of ownership and not expectation, we need to lead with making choices understanding the process and not just the moment of glory in the results. It is normal to want to quit, and to dread the process – but the only way to achieve success is to push through the uncomfortableness.
You have to find something inside of yourself to hang in there during the uncomfortable times. Creating a strategy and having a plan will help you.
When you are making choices, be sure to look at the effort and not just the results. This will ensure that you are living a life full of ownership and clarity.
Overcoming the uncomfortable creates confidence.
We need to recognize what we are really signing up for, and make choices out of our ability versus our desires and wants. When you are looking at life transformation, you have to get honest and ask yourself what you are willing to do to get there.
What are you willing to change?
You need to reframe what you want, by looking at where you are willing to get uncomfortable in today. Here is where you know what you are ready to work towards next.
The magic isn’t in the plan, it is in the willingness to complete the plan.
The effort is required, and not everyone is mentally prepared for the amount of work that is required to achieve their dreams. Don’t be surprised, expect the process of change to challenge you.
If you keep consistent, the process of being uncomfortable will continue to get easier. The moment where everything clicks, and momentum flows, happens in the consistency of the effort, not the motivation of the desire. 😉
We are rooting for you, we love you, and we are always here for you!
