I've been bearing witness to a lot of resistance to changing patterns lately, both within myself and others, and I see this a TON with clients and their relationships with food.
The beautiful thing about healing our relationships with food is that everything else in life gets an upgrade as a result. Yet, without this realization—or even sometimes with it—we still remain stuck.
It will work itself out.
I have other things that take priority.
I can’t afford a coach.
It’s not that big of a deal.
I’m afraid of what’s unfamiliar.
I’m afraid of losing control.
I can do it on my own and don’t need help (yet you’ve been repeating the same patterns for years).
If I don’t micromanage everything like I always have, then the wheels fall off the bus!
And the list goes on.
GIRL, humans are averse to change! WE ARE AVERSE TO CHANGE.
It always feels uncomfortable. That’s why we cycle through our own versions of hell over and over again, regardless of the pain we know we’re in.
I used to look at people who were making bold moves in their lives and think to myself,
“I wish I fearless like them. I wish I was wired that way, but I’m just too afraid.”
I quickly came to realize that every almost single person feels resistance when doing something new and different.
Almost every single person is uncomfortable when presented with change.
The differentiators between those who DO and those who simply WISH are the 1) acceptance and 2) action in spite of this discomfort.
This realization is simultaneously liberating yet burdensome.
We’re all the same! If they can do it, so can I!
Shit, if I’m my only roadblock, then I have to accept responsibility for my situation.
Don’t get me wrong—I still have to call myself out regularly!
And I make it a point to surround myself with and hire people who will do the same.
Get yourself friends who will push you to reach your potential and pursue your dreams, even when you’re filled with doubt and hesitation. Hint: these are usually move-makers themselves; not victims.
Take the leap and invest in the coach, the program, the therapist—anyone who will see through your bullshit and your desire for comfort.
As a coach, here is your call out.
It’s not *just* your relationship with food.
How you interact with food & your body is a reflection of how you interact with life & yourself.
And those aren’t things to take lightly, amiright?
If you don’t know how or where to start, you’re in luck!
I created a FREE video training series—7 Steps to Food Freedom—that walks you through the seven steps I use with my clients (and used myself) to build a foundation of freedom with food. And therefore, your life.
