How & Why You Can Do About Anything!
If you’re struggling to do something you really want, you may just not be very good at it.That’s better than being "not good enough", or incapable or lazy, or a bad person, or a “failure”, or “unmotivated.” Because…
If you’re not very good at something yet, there’s probably a way to get better at it. All skills can be developed. And…
Generally, skills that must be learned probably have a whole community of mentors and teachers who can help you! They’re the ones who can accurately guide you and assess you.
What I'm getting at is...you can almost certainly do the things you want to do! I would never squelch someone's dream. In fact, I won't even let my clients squelch their own! ☺️
All you need is coaching and practice.
Information to do something and a skill are totally separate. Wonder why you have a workout program in mind, or a healthy food plan but can't exactly carry it out?
Now, you may be reading this thinking, “Yes, but I know what healthy eating looks like” or “Yes, but I’ve been taking workout classes and training for years!”
So, you may have some good information and you may even have some applicable experience.
You can fix whatever is currently irking you or costing you your health - your eating behaviors, being unfit, a sports injury, that nagging belly fat...
The only reason you haven’t been able to so far attain the results you want:
You’ve probably missed at least one step. Change is a progressive process and some things need to be learned before others. Or...
You may think you have the skills, but youre not getting to the end result. Which means more than likely have not acquired the proper skills to do the things that come before whatever it is you want to do. You may need to practice getting better at some fundamentals. You may need to get some coaching or instruction.
So it’s just a matter of process and skill acquisition — not being a failure!
This is always how I see change and progress now, and it's been a incredible journey to have the humility to ask for help and to also take responsibility for my shortcomings. Change is a beautiful thing.
