The more knowledgeable you are about how to achieve your goals, the more motivated you will be, due to the fact that you will have the confidence that you can get there.
Perhaps you are struggling with finding the motivation to begin to change. Instead, you could commit to simply seeking out knowledge daily. Learn how your body works, learn about the different ingredients that are in the food you eat, learn about different exercises that you could do, and how they benefit your body. You could start an experiment on yourself and keep notes, learning from experience which foods feel good and give you energy, and which ones bring you down.
Begin by collecting that knowledge. It does not matter how many times you may have tried to change, it is never too late. By gaining more knowledge, you may find yourself gaining motivation without even trying (this was my experience upon reading “You On A Diet”). If you were certain that the steps you could take to create better health and quality of life would get you there, how motivated would you be to take action and follow those steps?
The following quote is from The Daily Guru, ©2006 by Max Steingart:
All Knowledge Is Power
The most successful people in life
are the ones with the best information.
People with power are people who know how to get things done.
Knowing how to do something is sometimes
virtually the same as having done it.
Knowledge will come to you
when your eyes and mind are always open.
There is no knowledge that is not power.
Power is the product of understanding.
You’ll build the power to accomplish your goals by educating yourself.
This power comes from knowing how to do something.
In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.
