“Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right.” ~Henry Ford
Surround yourself with people who not only support your dreams but also push you to continue the fight, and you WILL succeed. The best friends keep us accountable with positive pressure, and know us well.
Be willing to ask for help. At no point does asking a question or needing help mean that you are weak. Why, do we often tell ourselves this? Often society can bring this on or could be perfectionist tendencies that many of us carry around with us. For me, asking for help is when I am showing the most strength. To say to another, that I need help, or to be shown the way, gives me the option to learn and decide what I will chose from.
There will be times when we lose sight of what we believe in and think we can’t go on. At those times, we need to call on others who believe in us and can remind us of what we are capable of. Think of someone who has seen you at your worst, but at the same time, can help remind you what you have already accomplished.
If you don’t have a close friend who has been through exactly what you are going through or hope to accomplish, it can often be helpful to find a health coach to keep you constantly moving forward in the direction of your dreams. I love working with people who have anything from small health questions to grand goals. Either way, we all need a sounding board. Find someone to help you get everything out in the open by talking through it all, and begin to start moving forward.
No matter what you do during your day, all things should point in the same direction. A coach or friend can work with you to successfully navigate challenges, resistance, accountability, and planning. They help you discover what will allow you to truly Live Alive Fit!
