The results of the change are what actually motivate us.
Keep your focus on those.
“Logically,” we usually know what to do to improve our health and our lives. We just don’t do it.
Usually, it’s because we’re focusing on the mental work it takes. That seems taxing and overwhelming and not worth the effort. Therefore, we quit.
The key is to focus on the benefits you will receive by doing the work. For example, don’t focus on how hard it is to stick to your diet; picture how you’ll feel in one hour when you’ve resisted the habit.
In effect, focus on where you will be from your efforts, not what it’s taking to achieve them.
