What Are You Giving Power To?

I have a question for you: What do you want to give power to?

I walked into the gym at 6am sleepy eyed after another not so great nights sleep. Magnus has been sick for the past week and I’ve been getting up with him multiple times a night.

Deb, who is the front desk smiling ray of sunshine said to me, “Boy Tina, you sure are committed.” She sees me here 5 to 7 days a week.

I laughed and said, “I have to, it makes me nicer.” *which is 100% true…

Then we got into a long conversation about how hard it is to establish healthy habits. It’s something everyone battles with on some level because we’re not just battling resistance (which is a dirty fighter to begin with), we’re fighting habits and THAT is crazy hard.

Creating new habits are building new neural pathways is tough work. It going against ingrained behaviors that have been there for a long ass time. If they weren’t, we’d all eat healthy and be fit, right?

So what are we to do?

We keep at it, repeating the desired behavior until it becomes solidified as habit.

In that repetition, when the tricky trickster resistance shows up, ask yourself, “What do you want to give power to?

Your fear?
Loneliness?
Fatigue?
Resistance?
Hopelessness?
Boredom?
Excuses?
Depression?
What????

Let me remind you that you are magic walking around in a skin suit. You can do ANYTHING.
You can create any life you want if you choose it.

Choose it.
Choose you.
Own your power, than go take action.

I’m curious, where do you feel you are struggling with where you give your power to? Mine is often fatigue…go figure…
