The Body You Desire is on the Other Side of This

by | Sep 20, 2021

The body you desire is right on the other side of the work you’re avoiding.

Yup … I’m coming out swinging today.

The work you’re avoiding may be the work it takes to break out of the restrictive cycles you’ve been in.

The work you’re avoiding could be keeping you from your desired results.

It may be the work it takes to stop blaming yourself for not being able to white knuckle your way through 1200 calorie protocols.

It may be the work it takes to stop believing that you are somehow fundamentally flawed and lack discipline and willpower because you can’t avoid sugar (or whatever else you’re trying to eliminate).

It may be the work it takes to stop living in the all or nothing mindset and actually find a middle ground and balanced approach that’s sustainable.

It may be the work it takes to ditch the perfectionist tendencies and stop obsessing over every single bite of food that you take.

It may be the work it takes to realize that it’s the boring work that actually makes the biggest difference. The daily habits that seem too basic but are the keys to success.

It may be the work it takes to stop ignoring your body and start giving it what it needs.

It may be the work it takes to restore your metabolism after years or decades of chronic dieting.

It may be the work it takes to get over the mental hurdle that eating more may actually be the thing that gets you to where you want to be for a number of reasons.

It may be the work it takes to delay gratification and realize that the more you try to rush your results, the longer it will take you in the end.

It may be the work it takes to stop paying attention to what worked for your sister, your best friend, Gina from accounting, or any other person in your life because you are a unique individual with your own path to success.

It may be the work it takes to understand that asking for help is a sign of strength, not a sign of weakness.

It may be the work it takes to finally start prioritizing yourself by committing to doing things the right way and making an investment in YOU.

It may be the work it takes to stop trying different versions of the same shit because if what you’ve been doing was going to work … it probably would’ve worked by now.

It may be the work it takes to finally get the courage to send me a message and say, “Hey Mike, I see the insane transformations you create and how every POP client raves about their coaching experience and the freedom they now have after working with your team … and I want that for myself because I deserve it!”

Like I said …

The body you desire is right on the other side of the work you’re avoiding.

You have 2 choices:

1. Keep avoiding

2. Do the work

And for what it’s worth … avoidance is the more stressful option.

It gives your problems life.

It’s oxygen for your problems.

Action is the antidote.
