Why We Fail To Change

Since June 1st 2017, I have lost 66 lbs due to clean eating and self-discipline. I reached my goal weight in 5 1/2 months due to a drastic diet shift and lots of walking. I now weigh 133 lbs and feel more comfortable in my 5’4” frame. I eat a healthy balanced diet, do daily yoga, and practice mindfulness and energetic healing.

Sounds simple, right? 

And yet, any time people talk with me about my lifestyle change, the response is nearly always the same. 

"I could never do that!"

And in that quick self-assessment, the possibility of change has been quashed.

Why do we limit ourselves in this way? Immediate rejection. So fast to make ourselves so small.  Who conditioned you into this pattern? Why did you allow it to become part of your foundation? Take a moment to really dig into the reasons behind it.

You are of infinite power and capability with unlimited potential. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise - especially yourself. I was born and raised in Wisconsin - do you think I thought I would ever give up things like bread and cheese? Of course not. Until one day, I woke up and decided that I could.

We fail to change because we believe that we cannot change. Until that belief is questioned and corrected, we will never escape the small box that we’ve placed ourselves in. Even if someone else forced you into that box of limitation, you have made the choice every moment since to stay there. I’m here to tell you that you have the permission to step out of it. 

Always, Brittney
