Good morning peeps!
This morning, I woke up at 5 am and couldn't fall back to sleep.
But let's back up to yesterday, because that's also an important part of the story I'm about to tell you.
Yesterday, I was going for a walk and realized that I haven't been praying nearly as much as I used to. And before I lose you -- realize this post is not just about spirituality, it's about listening to signs from the Universe that show you you're exactly where you need to be (I call them GodWinks, but you can refer to them as anything you'd like).
ANYWAYS... back to my story.
I simply said "God I can't do this on my own. I've been trying for too long and I'm not sure which 'thing' you want me to focus on most right now. Please use me in a way you feel best."
No matter your religion or spiritual beliefs, I feel it's important to have a daily practice of connecting to something: whether that's meditating and being still enough to listen to your small voice or 'intuition', or praying for assistance from an outside source.
This morning, I woke up at 5 am, like I mentioned before.
At 5:30 am, I checked my email and saw I had a purchase on my Strong and Sexy Bikini Body Program from someone in London (Hi, Abi!). I emailed her immediately to thank her and she responded with the sweetest, most reassuring message EVER.
What's the purpose of me telling you this?
Because just yesterday, I was feeling discouraged. I was feeling lost. I was feeling like I was putting in all this effort..... for what??
Can you relate?
Have you ever been dieting for a month or more and have barely seen the scale budge? Or how about trying to set a new PR but your personal best has remained the same despite ALL your hard work at the gym?
Here's something I've learned by working with hundreds of people over the past few years:
What's the number one reason people don't get results?
They give up just before something amazing is about to happen.
They're JUST about to break through a weight loss plateau, but are frustrated from not seeing results as quickly as they'd like -- so they give up, just before they're about to lose the last 5 pounds they've been trying to lose forever.
They're JUST about to hit a new PR in the gym, but instead they stop training as hard for a while because they're not seeing any progress.
They've been tracking macros for a few weeks and don't understand why they don't have abs yet (even though it took them years to put on the weight they want to lose), and decide "f*ck it, I'm just going to go out and eat&eat&eat&eat&eat to my heart's desire).
I'm not judging you -- I'VE BEEN THERE.
In the example above, I was there just yesterday.
Imagine I had given up on my business because I wasn't seeing results as quickly as I'd like. Or I said "oh I'm just impacting a handful of people, but I want to be impacting millions... so I might as well just throw in the towel."
I would be doing myself AND the world a disservice, simply because I didn't have patience and trust in the process.
If you feel stuck in any area of your life... KEEP GOING.
It's always darkest just before the dawn, and I know that from personal experience.
Before you go and give up on something you wished so badly would happen for you and something you've been working so hard on.... take a few minutes to go inside yourself, or ask for a sign or answer you're on the right path.
Your breakthrough is coming. Be patient. Have hope. It will happen.
