Fall in love with the process.
Because it’s the process that gets things done.
None of it is going to happen from one day’s activities.
Your year won’t be a phenomenal year by happenstance.
It won’t be amazing because you did one thing exceptionally one time.
And it won’t be a great year if you achieve every goal you set but were burnt out and miserable in your day-to-day life.
How you live today—moment-to-moment—is what creates a phenomenal year.
When you set the goal to lose 15 pounds and get your numbers within the healthy range for your body, you know it’s not going to happen because you ate one salad and worked out one time.
It’s going to happen because you made the decision every day to value your health. To nourish your body with healthy foods (which, by the way, don’t have to suck). To move your body daily. To get sufficient, high-quality sleep.
It’s the decisions you make daily, the process, the habits, and the rituals that get you to the goal.
And because it’s the process, the habits and rituals you don’t want to force and grind and suffer through it all. You want to enjoy it. You want to love it.
Because if you hit the end of the year 15 pounds lighter but you hated every workout, ate foods that tasted like cardboard, and didn’t have a single piece of chocolate…
Well you’d be pretty damn miserable. And if you even made it to the goal, you’d quite probably never want to set another goal again.
But what if, instead of pushing and forcing and suffering to get the outcome, you fell in love with the process?
What if you…
Found ways to move that challenged you AND that you enjoyed.
Looked forward to your workouts (totally possible).
Enjoyed delicious foods that fuel and nourish your body and mealtime became pleasurable.
Had feel-good bedtime rituals that relieved stress and helped you wake up feeling rested?
Your life would be better wouldn’t it?
Learn to love the process and suddenly achieving the goal becomes the icing on the cake—a bonus because the way you’re living life feels good.
Put it into practice.
Identify the daily actions that will get you to your goals.
Fall in love with them.
And watch your life change.
Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
