Stop Asking The Question!
Whenever we decide we want to make a change to our lives, at some point we have a decision to make, and behind that is a question. Are we going to do the thing we want to do. The answer will of course decide if you get what you want or not.
Last year when I decided I had had enough of feeling over weight, my question was...
“shall I go to the gym today!”
The problem was... the answer was always “No!”
I hated the gym. It was a place of pain and discomfort and I was always feeling tired or stressed.
I wanted to get fitter but I didn’t want to do the work.
The fact is I NEEDED to do the work and that seemingly innocent question every day at crunch time was what was holding me back!
What did I do?
I stopped asking the question!!!
I told myself that yes was the only acceptable answer and that I should just carry on and do it.
The more I went the less horrendous the sessions seemed. Soon I was no longer sitting in my car dreading what might take place inside, I just kept going and the results soon started happening.
What question are you asking yourself that you know should be yes but which you are STILL asking!
If the answer was always YES what would the outcome be?
If the answer was always NO, what would the result be?
Choose the one that gets you the best outcome and decide that you no longer need that question anymore.
I’d love to hear your pivotal questions!

Such a great post with a message that works! I find I dread the gym too but as you say, stop asking the question and just go and do it! It's hard in the beginning but it does get easier (and there's nothing worse than sitting in the car, talking yourself out of it before you've even set foot in the gym!)

Exactly! It is so freeing to remove that daily decision from your life.
