It never ceases to amaze me when someone says they want to make a change, but only if it’s convenient.
“I want to lose weight, but I hate to exercise.”
“I want to do better in business, but I don’t want to make phone calls to prospective clients.”
“I want a clean house, but I dread the thought of what it will take.”
I know I should start a morning routine, but I’m not willing to get up earlier to add this to my day.”
Change rarely occurs unless we are willing to change. It’s really that simple.
It’s amusing (and somewhat sad) to hear someone justify why they can’t take the action to make the change when in reality it’s because they don’t want to feel the discomfort that comes with change.
As we wrap up this 30 Day Turnaround Challenge, how did you do? Did you stick with your initial goal? Did you stop because you got caught up with other things? Was it easier to stay in bed than get up an hour earlier to focus on what you committed to?
Ready for another 30 Day Turnaround Challenge?
If yes, what would you like the focus to be? Business? Health? Money?
Let me know where your interest resides by leaving comments in the comment area. If you show interest, we will do another challenge. If you don’t show any interest, I’ll do my own challenge but not spend time every day posting about it.
After all, if you are not willing to put energy into this…
Thanks for the challenge. I didn’t get it done though. Would love to do it again and stick with it – if you are running another one. I would be interested in a challenge on growing my business. Thanks for the motivation and showing us how it is done
I’m ready to do another 30 days. I over-committed myself on this one, but I did do 30 full days of no-cheating WFPB (vegan) eating. I slid a lot on doing my morning routine and I want to re-start the 30 day challenge with that. The challenge was good for me, as I did achieve my overall goal of improving my eating and sleeping and exercising more.
It’s all a process. The thing I remind myself of is this; I didn’t create the thing I want to change overnight. And I will not change for the better over night. Step at a time. Day at a time. Great job Ellen for doing what you have done. Keep it up.
