The Hero's Journey
How To Embark On Your Own Journey As A Tool To Get What You Want
By Joshua Wayne, MA
Whatever it is, you wouldn’t be reading this if there wasn’t some major change you really wanted to make in terms of your body and health. And yet, you keep bumping into that threshold.
So how does the hero finally get across this threshold? In a word: Courage
. It requires the courage to change. It requires the courage to fully commit to ourselves and our highest good
; to commit to breaking out of this little jail cell we created. It requires the courage to face our fears, “slay our dragons” and fight for what we want! Your issues with food are the “battle” you must fight as the hero on your own journey.
So what is your
battle? What do you have to be brutally honest with yourself about and summon your inner courage to face?
• Finding a way to handle stress, frustration and anger without eating yourself into a mini-coma every night?
• Being a people pleaser and always doing what you think others want you to do?
• Fear of intimate relationships and sex?
• Eating to cover your uncomfortable feelings?
• Developing discipline to follow through for more than 3 weeks at a time and without sabotaging your own success?
• Believing you really deserve it and can do it?
Whatever keeps snagging you, I want you to know that I completely recognize that these old habits and beliefs you carry may be very intense and overwhelming. Sometimes they’re so intense and pervasive that we just accept them as reality.
But I’m here to deliver this news: your fears and your limitations are not reality
. Perhaps you’ve heard this acronym for FEAR before:
Chew on that for a moment. Your fears and your limitations are just that- false beliefs you came to accept as reality. The good news is that you have a tremendous opportunity available to you right now to break through your glass ceiling.
You CAN shed the limitations and challenges that have kept you stuck in the same rut with your weight loss for perhaps several years. You have the ability to become a new person
in many respects.
