{Video} Telling the Truth About Your Health

Being truthful with yourself will allow you to realize your health goals with ease.

There's an editorial written by Professor David Issac here, that I was reading this morning about truth. In my facebook group, Beauty in Bloom Sisterhood, on Mondays we post about motivation and mindfulness.

So I was doing a little research and thinking to myself on the struggles many of us have when it comes to reaching our health goals. Whether it be losing 40 lbs, reducing stress, gaining energy or whatever. It has a lot to do with truth.

For my clients, I always tell it like it is. I may sugar coat it so it's easier to swallow, but it still is the truth. Because it is what it is. There's no need to be in the shadows about your health. To be frank, if you are suffering from a health issue, it usually shows in one way or another so why not face it and heal from it.

 

This lead me to asking why is it hard for us to change.

I love this cartoon of a crowd of people standing and listening to a speaker. The speaker asks, who wants change? And everyone puts up their hands, and then he asks. Who wants to change, and no one has a hand raised. Why do people want change but don't want to change? Can you answer that in a comment below?

 

Being truthful with yourself will allow you to realize your health goals with ease.

 

Now back to this editorial that I found. Issacs writes that

"Thirty years ago, I was working in a teaching hospital in  England. If a child, even a teenager, with a bone tumour needed their leg amputated, one consultant orthopaedic surgeon would never tell the child or permit anyone else to tell the child in advance. The child would go to the operating theatre being told they were to have a biopsy and ‘anything necessary’. The surgeon insisted that knowing in advance would make the child unnecessarily anxious, and it was kinder for the child not to know beforehand. He ignored any nurse, social worker or doctor who had the temerity to suggest it was kinder to let children prepare mentally for amputation and would probably help them cope better." (27333842)

 

I want to challenge you to do the opposite.

Face your fear, doubt or worry, and be truthful with yourself.

Give yourself the placebo effect of you have to. Convince yourself that you will reach your goal. If you are even thinking about reaching your goal, you actually are doing something quite powerful to help you. Just don't block those powerful thoughts with lack of action.
