Why You Can’t Quite Get The Body You Want – And What to Do About It

One of the most common fears around getting the body you want is the fear that it will be difficult or even impossible to maintain afterwards.

It’s a fear that can actually stop you from ever getting there in the first place, because why on earth would you want to work your butt off for something you believe you can’t then hold onto?

And when you really stop and think about what this fear means, it’s not even about the actual work or sacrifice although of course that is part of it.

What it is about is living according to the standards you’ve set for yourself.

You see, whether or not you realise it, you see yourself a certain way.

As the busy woman who juggles so many things.

As the one whose friends come to her for nutrition or exercise advice.

As the Mum who manages to (just!) stay on top of everybody’s schedules and perhaps even her own.

As the fit and healthy girl who is in good shape but just can’t quite seem to breakthrough to being in great or freaking amazing shape.

As the successful one who is driven and focused and certainly busy, and who so many people look up to and take inspiration from, but yet who is quite quite sure that the way she is living her life is not exactly as it could be.

But yet who also doesn’t really know what the dream life would look like; who can’t seem to form a mental image and who therefore simply doesn’t know how to move forward or change.

However you see yourself, however you think others see you, it is a standard that you have set for yourself.

An upper limit, if you like.

And whether it’s sub-consciously or aloud, you say to yourself – this is who I am.

This is where I’m at.

Going further; breaking through that upper limit would require something I either don’t have or am unwilling to give or am unworthy of having even if I did truly give it my all.

The truth is this –

It’s easier to stay average than to raise your expectations of who you are and how you will live your life. Imagine that you finally reach your body goal.

Just close your eyes and imagine –

You’re on the beach.

In a bright blue bikini.

You are tanned.

Your hair is shiny and soft.

You’re standing talking to someone and have one thumb casually tucked into your bikini bottoms just above the hip bone. And you can feel that hipbone.

You’re confident, happy, uplifted. Proud.

Tell me –

What do you think having that body would mean for you?

How would it make you feel, sure, but also –

In what way would it require you to live differently to what you are right now?

Would it mean you would have to be more prepared with your food?

Give up relying on doing the best you can while out and about?

Stop pressing snooze and actually hit up that morning workout day after day?

Wean yourself off the little daily treats that you think you need to de-stress or be happy?

Get support to actually once and for all break the patterns of self-sabotage or limiting behaviours, and to deal with negative beliefs?

It’s daunting, isn’t it?

The truth is that for your body to change, whatever you are doing right now does need to change.

Perhaps not drastically.

But often even the final 10 or 20% is what holds us back.

Not wanting to give up that one thing.

Not wanting to go the extra mile or even the extra step.

It really is easier to stay average.

Especially when your average is probably most people’s great.

It’s safer as well, to remain where you are.

You know what to expect of yourself, and you’re able to meet that expectation. You’re able to easily live up to others expectations of who you are and how you live your life.

This means less judgement. Less attention. Less fanfare.

All the things that, if you did get them, might make it even scarier to think about maintaining that goal once met.

So what most people will do is that on an inner level they will recognise all of this, and rather than put themselves in a situation of having to raise their standards, their expectations and the expectations of others, and of having to then continually meet those new standards, they will remain stagnant.

They will not go the extra mile.

They will avoid letting go of their comforts and clutches, the things they think they enjoy but that really offer little except a quick release.

And they will bitch and moan and complain about how they’ve tried everything and how they just can’t quite get there.

And probably, they will never ever realise that the only thing stopping them is them. But you, you’re not most people. Or are you? The choice is yours.

And I believe you’ll do what it takes.

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

I’m creating my new course, Big $ollar Energy, for the one who always knew she is here for millions,

to make it. To impact them. To create. And to LEAD.

Big $ollar Energy

The Money & Expansion Course for the Soul-Led Wanderer Who KNOWS It’s Time to Go All in on HER,

and Let the Damn Receiving Take Care of Itself. The Way it Was Always Meant to Be.

Which means?

Identifying and releasing everything that gets to go, from the way you’re thinking you need to do shit now, to the purposeless bits of the push or biz that it just don’t need to be about, to the hidden junk in your psyche that gets to go.

>>> It’s not about the do. The push. The win. When who you are when you only go within naturally PLACES you at the top,

but of the right fucking mountain.

The one that was always YOURS.

And then you finally WENT there.

Here’s the thing, for us, about allowing an expanse of RECEIVING.

IT HAPPENS WHEN WE GO TO THE PLACE WHERE IT JUST IS.
And always was.
