Week 1 of the brand new DPM Project X kicked off this week and it got me thinking about change. And why we do it.
As a side note – if you missed the boat – Project X is the re-incarnation of my successful 4 Week Express Transformation Contest. It has been given a coat of paint, the protocol has been changed and the results are going to be amazing.
If you still want in, I am still accepting late acceptances until this coming Monday, May 27 at 5pm. Go here NOW to sign up and get on the Project X transformation boat.
Anyway, back to change.
I was thinking about change and what makes us change this morning.
It got me thinking that we don’t really appreciate how much we want something until we don’t have it.
I can relate that to my own life. When my Dad died – 8 years ago this coming Monday to be honest – it was the worst day of my life. It gave me a kick up the arse and is the reason why I do what I do now. But that was the first instance that really made me appreciate what I did have with him.
But of course, it took it being taken away for that to happen.
Another incident in my life recently reaffirmed that.
Until something is taken away it makes you realise how much you want it.
Each person can relate to something like that I am sure of.
Maybe it’s your job you didn’t realise how much was actually okay until you left for another one.
Maybe it’s your weight that has gotten out of control of late. You don’t appreciate how great it actually felt to be fit and healthy until you have put on that 5 or 10kg.
It makes you want to get back there again.
It makes you want to have energy like you used to.
It makes you want your partner to look at you like they did when you first met.
It makes going shopping for clothes actually enjoyable instead of dreading walking into a store and having to buy the next size up because the old clothes are too tight.
So how much do you want to change?
Remember how you used to feel and realise that you can get there again. And stay there with a bit of smart eating and training.
If you are ready to show how much you want it I am still accepting participants for Project X. You will start from Week 1 and just finish up a week later.
I’m calling it the ‘late acceptances’ category. The door is closing. Don’t let it slam shut on you.
To be a part of Project X – and prove how much you want that old feeling again – go here NOW. Deadline Monday May 27 @ 5pm.
