What is the best present you have ever gotten yourself?
I am so grateful that at some point in my life I made the decision to be the guard and nurturer of my soul.
I took it upon myself to learn the skills and develop tools to self-sooth AND maintain a burning desire to keep being better.
The drive for self improvement doesn’t have to come from pain.
It is infinitely more beautiful when it comes from the joy of infinite possibility that WE ALL HAVE ACCESS TO!
My catch up calls with my SMP girls each Friday, reinforce the value of the mental and emotional tools which I teach the girls and how powerful they are at helping them grow and evolve into the people they want to be.
For the past six weeks we have been working on a new mediation project in The Sports Model Project. We are working with the wonderful Billy Telfer (The Naked Chef) then giving our reflections of our practice inside of a private group. It’s been a challenge and a massive life upgrade for the whole team.
It’s the girls who apply these skills and tools that get the most phenomenal growth. In fact it’s the best present that they have ever given themselves.
We are seeing some pretty profound changes in the nature of the girls minds and the quality of their experience of this life.
We also see that they change physically. They are less bloated, less puffy and their measurements have started to move in a consistent fashion
Because in order to change who you are you must be willing to let go of the past.
You must be willing to change your old thoughts, words and actions. We all believe that we are a certain way now, because of something that happened in the past.
But that's not true.
Stuff happened once, we responded to it the best we could at the time but all of our responses from here on out are a choice that we make right now and keep on making.
Most women change their bodies without changing who they are and therefore they never really change.
They put all the effort in the external validation and base their happiness on that.
They have a new body but they still have the same stories, the same limitations, the same insecurities which is why they never appreciate or see what they have just achieved.
I known how that feels, I have been there many times before too.
But If you want to have self-confidence, if you want to be happy, then you need to start acting and thinking in a way that supports those goals, otherwise no matter that you do, no matter how good you look, it will never be enough.
It’s weird, people always say to me don’t ever change.
I have been told this by someone at every different stage I have been in.
The things is, I had changed. I have to change.
I must keep changing.
I cannot be the person I was 10 years ago if I want to keep evolving.
The true transformation is in the mind.
If you do not put effort into changing this, the more things change, the more they’ll stay the same.
Are you ready to the work?
Are you ready to change?
Light and loving kindness
