"Because if I don't work out in the morning, I won't do it."
I asked this person, "Is it a scheduling thing? Do you not have time later in the day?"
"No, I have time. I just always work out in the morning," she says.
Not really...Because you didn't.
What she means is, "I only work out in the mornings."
You see, in her mind, she created this rule that she only works out in the mornings. This is how she always did it before.
Well this isn't before. Before doesn't matter. This is now. Don't let your past dictate your future. Make a decision that your future self will thank you for. Make a different choice.
What if we could practice changing our minds?
Now, don't get me wrong - it's easier said than done. I get it - we all have our habits and our preferences. But realize that the #1 thing holding you back is most often you and your mindset. Instead of thinking that as shame that it's all your fault, flip it around and think of it as opportunity. You have an opportunity to change your mind and therefore change your life.
Which will you decide?
