Creating an Honesty Covenant with yourself and others will be essential to your success and mental well-being. In reality, the scale/checkbook/relationships/happiness does not lie.
Misleading yourself or others as to how well you are behaving but just not seeing the results is detrimental to success. Beyond being in a Physiological Plateau, here are the reasons I see that people do not succeed:
· You were not ready to commit to a new/different lifestyle.
· You did not know how to get started, and stay on the right track.
· You lacked the proper information/education.
· You wanted a quick fix.
Be honest with yourself and others. Misleading yourself with statements like “I am ok.” or “I am eating pretty good” or “I can’t seem to save money no matter what!” or “I cannot get along with my spouse no matter what!” or “I am too busy to exercise.” are lies. Look internally and decide if you are emotionally protecting yourself by not facing up to your actions and then list out the half-truths and absolute illusions that you feed your brain on a daily basis.
Ask for help when you need to and stay the course.
Figure out what issues/challenges you face and find long-term solutions. If you are not changing, then there is an issue with one of the following:
Food – Fitness – Focus
Have you been honest?
If not, how have you been deceiving yourself?
How can you course correct?
If you decide to live your life in this way, if you drop the stories and the B.S. from your life, you will move ahead and achieve at speeds that you never thought possible. You will find a new level of self-respect and pride. We all deceive ourselves from time to time. You can break the habit if you choose to.
