“You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right.” If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you will never stick it out.” –Steve Jobs
The concept applies to most things in life. If you’re not passionate enough about your health and wellness, you will stall, start and never finish, and continue the yo-yo diet, denial, and fall back to your old habits. The emotional rollercoaster this process is taxing to the body and mind.
Minimize or avoid emotional rollercoaster rides by aligning your heart with your head!
