People are enslaved in so many different ways. For some it is addictive behavior; for others it is lack of organizational skills, etc. But when you live in the country of the free, you are doing yourself a disservice by not embracing all which that entails.
First you have to figure out what you really want. And then you have to work hard – and slow – to make it happen. Just saying you want to be thin is not going to help. But deciding that living a healthy lifestyle is a value for you will assist you in resisting that last sugared doughnut.
Second, you have to set up a realistic plan. Saying that you are going to exercise every day for 2 hours is never going to happen. Starting slow and being realistic is more likely. Therefore figure out your schedule and – at least initially – fit 10 minutes of light exercise into it per day.
Third, when you fail on your plan, just get straight back up on the horse and try again. No matter how many times. Just keep on focusing on your own personal road to freedom. You’ll get there. Maybe not today or even tomorrow. But if you really want it, you’ll make it happen.
Just remember, you are living in the land of the free. Don’t waste that opportunity.
