Why having this awareness and energy coming into your life significant to this weight loss pill and your weight [fat] loss management journey?
It’s because oftentimes when we don’t have something inspiring to go after that drives our focus and why the autopilot takes over and we waste a great deal of time. Instead of living life with intentionality, we can easily live a mediocre life.
I love this quote by author William Ward:
“The price for excellence is discipline. The cost of mediocrity is disappointment.”
“The things we focus on come at the price of other things that we then can’t give out time/energy/focus to”, says author Jamie Lima on her book “Believe It”. Awesome book, by the way.
Having clarity about what’s truly important to you and inspires you because it’s part of your why will help you take greater responsibility for your health. You will reflect and understand that there’s no wealth without health. You’re your health or energy is your ticket to leading a fulling life with joy. It’s your ticket to do more of the things you love so you feel proud of your choices before going to bed every freaking day.
It will be clearer that the choices you make today affect tomorrow and aging. These choices have an impact on the number and frequency of doctors’ visits, surgeries, medications, and dependency of the latter. They (choices) impact the level of anxiety, worry, and frustration as you age. They impact your ability to get out of bed and stand up with ease. Goodness, I can go on and on here.
Let me share a story that might resonate or ignite inspiration in you. This is a conversation I had with a friend and let’s call her Shay.
I asked Shay, what does inspire you? Without missing a beat, she replied…
“Whenever I get down or whenever I feel shitty. I just think like I need to show up for the people that care about. For me it’s all about people. I don’t think people depend on me but I know I’m important to them. I know I matter to them and I know that friends that call me is because we want to have a friendship for the next 30 years. I don’t want them to disappear and they don’t want me to disappear. I think about those relationships. If I want to maintain those relationships, I gotta be healthy. I gotta be strong. I gotta be clear-headed. I gotta take care of myself. That’s my motivation.”
And I said, so one of your values is to be an inspiration to others. Do you ever think about that before you make a decision, let’s say of getting drunk?
“Every time”, she said. She continues, “for example, my friend Jessie has two daughters that I’m close with. We had a visit for an hour. And so when I think of doing something, I think, what would Jessie think. The 11-year old, what would they think if I was doing X in front of them? or if I heard myself saying Y, what would they think? I think about the people when I make decisions about decisions.”
I told her, so people fuel your inspiration. Your WHY is to be an inspiration to others, be a catalyst, be helpful, be a value to those you cherish.
As she was telling me this, I had a big smile on the other side of the phone. I could feel her energy and intention and purpose through her voice. I love to hear people’s WHY and inspirations. And love to help people uncover them. It’s a beautiful thing.
