I fully believe every single person has a dream or desire in them that they currently aren’t pursuing or they are only pursuing halfheartedly out of fear. I also think that part of living life to its fullest is by being fully involved. What does that mean?
Well, it’s kind of like being in a relationship or a friendship where you or the other person only commits to part of the relationship, but not all of it. You sign up for the good times, but not the bad. You want all the benefits with no effort or chance of getting hurt. It’s the same thing with your job and your dreams. We take a job we don’t love, but it has benefits whether monetary or emotional benefits and then only invest half of ourselves into it because we don’t really want to pursue something else or because we don’t want to risk actually going all in and possibly losing everything.
It’s called a back up plan. The guy/girl who cheats on their significant other simply has a backup plan to avoid ever really getting hurt. They don’t have to fully invest in who they are with so they keep people on the side so they never have to be alone. It’s giving only half your attention to your dreams while still living a 9-5 work week “just in case” your dreams let you down and don’t workout you still have this miserable, predictable job every single day that’ll pay the bills.
That’s not being fully involved in your life! That’s called safety, security and comfort! While we all LOVE those things, and believe me I do too, they don’t get you the life you want.
You are excited about living your life I know and this all sounds great to you! Are you ready to be fully involved though?! I will warn you it’s not easy….you will be forced to rely on your gut more than ever and to go against the crowd of how everyone else is living their life even when you aren’t sure if you are doing anything right. BUT, life will always give you those relief moments…those moments where you just sigh and think “oh my gosh, I actually am living my dreams. I actually am in the right direction and on the right path.” We all need these moments and they do come at exactly the right time. Trust me! The irony about life is this: What you do in one area will directly reflect in every area. How fully you are involved in one aspect of your life is a reflection of how fully involved you are in every area of your life.
I have used this analogy with my fitness clients as well. If you commit to change your lifestyle and your eating habits for good and stop seeing it as something you are just going to try out then you will get the results you desire, but it requires you to make the commitment to yourself and to be fully involved in this new you! When clients actually do that, they feel better, look better, business starts to expand, relationships start to flourish, confidence grows, they are more excited about life, and everything is affected simply by BEING INVOLVED.
Where are you only half involved? Ask yourself that question and take the risk of giving it your all and see where life takes you! It’ll be a whole new journey with all kinds of adventures, but it’ll be much more living then you have experienced before!
