If you plant a seed, it will grow.
There are critical reasons why 95% of diets fail. Including that diets don’t address the inner work of emotions and beliefs that are critical for lasting transformation. Most diets also start with “fixing the body” rather than appreciating and loving it.
This is why transforming your life from the INSIDE – OUT is so effective. Step one is to create peace and happiness on the INSIDE that is independent of physical circumstance. Then, the natural product of inner peace and happiness is OUTER health and vitality. In other words – it is important to plant the seeds that we want to harvest and manifest. When we start with choosing to love our bodies and accept who we are, the natural end result is happiness, love, and acceptance.
Here are three key steps of effective transformation:
#1 Choose happiness:
Choosing happiness is simple, and yet very few people do it. It is important to STOP waiting for peace and happiness. When we continually tell ourselves that we will be happy upon the achievement of some external goal – whether it be losing weight or eating right, notice that we are putting off happiness to the future. Remember happiness is a CHOICE and not a DESTINATION.
Begin to develop an outward focus and ask how you can help and serve others. When a person starts looking outward and serving they begin to be less focused on their looks and who is judging them. This creates a literal shift that is magical – leading to greater self-love and acceptance.
#3: Love as action:
Do something each day to “love” yourself in action. This could be exercising for 20 minutes, eating a high-energy healthy meal, or taking a walk in nature. The important thing is to take action rather than only thinking or feeling love.
It is critical to plant positive “seeds” at the beginning of any transformation. Positivity, love, happiness, and peace will yield end results that are lasting and fulfilling. Starting with inner love and acceptance and simply taking care of the body by honoring it, is an important shift.
