We like to use the phrase “but I live in the real world” to justify why a habit or change can’t be made... For example:
“I’d like to prepare, cook and eat healthy meals, but I live in the real world.”
“I’d like to move more - I’d like to be a little leaner and a little stronger, and I’d like to travel, but I have a job and family commitments - I live in the real world.”
The problem is so does everyone else, including the people who are making your dreams happen.
When we use "living in the real world" as an excuse, all we’re really doing is implying that we exist in the opposite of the opportunity filled world in which we all currently reside. Let’s reshape the previous excuses, shall we…?
“I’d like to prepare and eat healthy meals, but I just don’t see how it’s possible for me right now...”
“I’d like to move more - I’d like to be a little leaner and a little stronger, and I’d like to travel, but I’m not sure where to start…”
You see the difference?
It’s much more feasible to bring about change when we see the problem is with ourselves and not that the solution doesn’t exist anywhere in the known universe…
My resolution for 2018 is to stop using "living in the real world" as an excuse... What's yours?
“Sit the f*** down and have a beer…”
