Winning and making progress INCLUDES mistakes
Have you ever started a new game and quickly realized that you were going to epically fail, so you made up some reason why you couldn’t continue playing or explained how dumb that game was?
I sure have!!
Who likes to feel dumb and incapable? I sure don’t!
If you’re like me, you want to show how well you can do things.
You want to win!
You want to feel like you’re making progress!!
What if winning and making progress INCLUDED mistakes?
What if for every mistake you made, you knew that you were one step closer to learning something new and getting better at it?
What if a mistake didn’t mean that you are some kind of inferior person, but rather that you simply have room to grow?
So often when we take on a new approach to health, we expect to follow the process effortlessly and within issue.
When things don’t go perfectly we feel like we’re inadequate, and all the lies we’ve been believing that say we have no potential for healthy living start to shout, “yeah! See! You’re not cut out for this.”
Well, I’m here to tell you that you ARE cut out for it, if you choose to be.
It’s a matter of choice, commitment, and consistency.
(How do you like those 3 C’s? )
When you choose to be committed and remain consistent on LEARNING (which involves a lot of mistakes), you end up making progress over time.
Isn’t our walk with Jesus the same?
We choose to give our lives to Him. We remain committed - not quitting the first time we fall short, and we consistently spend time with Him, allowing the Holy Spirit to transform & lead us.
It can be the same with healthy habits!
