When you’re thinking about committing to something, how often do you tell yourself you don’t have time in your life?
“I just don’t have enough time.”
“I’ve got too much going on right now. I’ll wait until it’s a better time.”
Who decides when it is the right time? The answer is YOU.
I want you to really focus on what I am about to say here, really be thoughtful when you answer these questions. What you may discover about yourself because of this post CAN LITERALLY CHANGE YOUR LIFE. I’m not even being dramatic.
TIME is our most valuable asset. It’s literally the only thing that none of us can get more of. If it’s so valuable, isn’t it funny that we usually do not align our time with what is most important to us?
Think about this right now: WHAT 3 things are the MOST important to you in your life?
For me, I would prioritize these things: Faith, family, and health.
Now answer this question for yourself: HOW MUCH TIME did you spend focused on taking care of these things yesterday?
Notice how much time you spent doing things that DO NOT serve your main priorities. How about pleasing other people? Watching TV or scrolling through Facebook? Worrying about things you can’t control?
How are you using your time?
Are you using it like it’s the ONLY LIFE YOU HAVE?
If the answer is NO, I want you consider WHY. And I want you to take full responsibility for how you choose to spend your time. When it comes down to it, no one can make you do anything. No one can make you go to work. No one can make you take care of your kids.
Everything you are doing is because you CHOOSE to do it. And this is the best news, because when you accept that everything you do is because you choose to, you get all your power back.
Now consider this: If you took better care of yourself, if you could prevent the impact of Type 2 Diabetes on your lifespan, could you have more time?
How would it impact the time you HAVE right now? In what ways would it change your experience?
The answer is that whatever the ways it would impact your life, the result would be enormous. Not only would you eliminate the limitation that chronic disease could place on your lifespan, but the QUALITY of your life RIGHT NOW would realize a dramatic improvement.
No more checking your blood sugars, mind drama over the results, going to the pharmacy to pick up meds, going to the doctor to have your “check up,” taking your meds everyday, ALL THE THINGS that detract from the quality of your life.
Add to that how much better you would feel everyday, the improvement in your energy and vitality. The outlook in your life would be so much happier. YOUR MIND would literally be more optimistic.
People are reversing their Type 2 Diabetes every. single. day. And do you know what they say when they accomplish this?
“My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.”
“Why did I wait so long to take action?”
Why are you choosing to spend your time in indecision? In overwhelm? In confusion?
All of this is COSTING YOU TIME.
All you need to stop this madness right now is a DECISION.
Imagine this: I offer you the most incredibly delicious, enticingly prepared, exquisitely presented donut that you have ever laid eyes on. It is crafted by a world famous bakery that uses only the finest ingredients. People pay ridiculous money for their donuts. And I am offering one to you now.
Of course you want one.
Now I say to you, each one costs $1000.
Immediately your mind removes the option to eat that outrageously overpriced donut. You think, “I don’t give a how much that donut is, it isn’t worth $1000.”
Of course you decline.
Why was it so desirable in one moment, and completely undesirable in the next? The reason is because of how you thought about it.
That is the power of your mind. It can make a decision and remove all other options.
You can make a decision, commit to it 100%, and make it real. It will become real because you will not entertain any other option. It is as good as done.
This is why when you want to change something, you need to start with your thoughts. Your thoughts are what drive your feelings, which inspire your action to create your reality.
No lasting change comes from outside of your mind.
Are you ready to decide? This is what I help people do. And then I coach people through transformation. It is THE BEST. I show them WHAT to do to reverse their Type 2 Diabetes, HOW to get themselves to do it consistently, and, as a primary care pharmacist, I help them anticipate medication changes as they need less and less of them.
