I get a lot of enquiries on how to lose weight successfully. Most of them are just talking about “wanting” to lose weight and very few actually do it. They have a lot of excuses from attending a wedding, to entertaining, to being too busy to take five minutes to pause and consider a healthy lifestyle that could actually revolutionise their lives and that of those around them.
Sometimes, I get really frustrated over those who keep telling me they want to lose weight whenever they see me. One of them has been saying so for nearly a decade and is becoming unhealthier as the years go by. And has a mental block about actually doing something about it.
Most of the time people get the two mixed up- the wanting and the doing. Which is more important?
What do you have to do in your life to thrive? What do you to be have to do to be happy?
What do you have to do to be physically healthy? What do you have to do to be mentally healthy?
If any of these things were missing, what would happen to you?
A want is a choice. Whereas doing is an action, and therein lies the difference- to actually do what you have decided to do immediately. “Try” is a worthless word that accomplishes nothing. It might make us feel better when we fail, but it actually induces the kind of behavior that leads to failure.
You can want something really badly, you can think about it all day long, or even dream about it; but it will never be yours unless you do something about it.
The difference between WANTING and DOING is that one is a dream and the other is TAKING ACTION.
If you really want something, you have to work hard for it. Do everything you can to make it a reality.
Decide either to do or not do. If you don’t want to do something, fine. Don’t do it. But don’t pretend that trying is the same as doing. They are two completely different postures.
You either do something or you don’t do it. Talking about wanting to do something provides us with an excuse for why we didn’t accomplish the desired outcome
Maybe it’s time to quit trying and just do it. Here are three suggestions:
Eliminate the word “try” from your vocabulary. Language is subtle. The words we use can program us to perform certain ways. Using the wrong language can create an outcome we don’t intend. It just makes it easier for us to let ourselves off the hook when we fail.
Decide either to do or not do. If you don’t want to do something, fine. Don’t do it. But don’t pretend that wanting or trying is the same as doing. They are two completely different postures.
Everything important we accomplish begins with a decision. We don’t slip into our greatest achievements. We commit and then make them happen.
Commit 100 percent to the outcome you want. “Failure is not an option.” Play full out. Don’t quit. Don’t settle for merely talking about wanting to do something. Make a choice.
The difference may only be in your mind, but it has a dramatic impact on the outcome of whatever you set out to do.
YOU HAVE TO BE SPECIFIC ABOUT WANTING TO DO something. IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE DESIRE TO DO IT, YOU HAVE NO REASON TO DO IT. AND THEN YOU WON’T.
