It’s the little things that make the difference
And here’s a secret: ACTION makes the difference.
One of the things I love about Kinesiology, or aligning your energy with my DIY Kinesiology Kit, is that it brings you into a place where action is far more effective and purposeful. But you still need to take action to create change in your life.
Sometimes, a goal we want to achieve might seem so big as to be insurmountable.
You might really hate your job and be desperate for change. You might have gained a lot of weight that now feels daunting to lose. You might be so far from your ideal life that it just doesn’t seem worthwhile trying to make changes because it feels like you’ll never get there.
So what do we do?
Well, we might sabotage ourselves, for a start.
We might decide that since our goal is so far away, it doesn’t really matter what we do right now.
- What does it matter if you sit on social media at work to deal with boredom rather than doing your best so we get a good reference whilst also proactively looking for a new job?
- What does it matter if you go for a walk OR eat a packet of biscuits right now if it’s likely to take many months or even years to get to your ideal weight?
- What does it matter if you buy that expensive pair of shoes or not if you already have huge credit card debt?
- Why not just sit around feeling angry and annoyed at the world rather than starting to take some steps in the direction of a more positive life since it seems impossibly far away?
If you’ve been finding it hard to make regular positive choices, you might try what one of my Kinesiology clients decided to do: write yourself a reminder note like,
“Will this choice make me feel happier and healthier?”
Put the note in various places to remind yourself to stay in the present moment and acknowledge the many positive choices you have the chance to make every day (rather than focusing on a big, seemingly insurmountable goal).
Of course, over time, these “small” choices will add up to big changes and in fact become simply the way you do things, and not even feel like a choice.
Your daily choices are important.
Recognise the small choices you make:
- What will I eat for my afternoon snack?
- Will I exercise today?
- What do I drink with my dinner each night?
- How will I spend this $50 in my wallet?
- How will I react to this situation?
- What am I going to focus on?
- What will I choose to talk about?
- What will I read and watch?
What other examples can you think of?
Each of these small decisions add up to a much bigger picture.
