Your ability to bet on yourself will be the determining factor between a life of mediocrity and one of extraordinary potential. - Joe Balcom
According to psychology experts at Queen's University in Canada, did you know the average person will typically have more than 6,000 thoughts in a single day? With that in mind, let's think about these questions: What would our lives look like if we finally decided to bet on ourselves? What ideas would we pursue? What would we try again? What relationships would we mend?
This year, I decided to put some feet to that thought to bet on myself. It's not enough for me to say these lofty words - I needed to walk this out. In January, I started my weight loss journey and I am now 23 pounds down! Woot, Woot.
Resistance will come but we have to press forward. The journey is not easy and is guaranteed to have its challenges but...babyyyyy, it's worth it! To be transparent, I had moments when I started to slow up and just wanted to go back to old behaviors. However! There is too much on the other side. Take a look at the photo below. On the left, that's me in 2019 and the one on the right is from last weekend. Honestly, the overachiever in me didn't see the big change until I saw the pictures side by side.
What I'm saying is this: sometimes we need to take a step back to gain a new perspective, to see how far we've come in order to discover what's ahead.
We are in the second quarter of 2021, and we still have time to get it right. We still have time to achieve our dream. As long as there is breath in your body, there is still opportunity to go forth!!
What would your life look like if you finally decided to bet on yourself the rest of this year?
