Realistic Expectations

Posted by Sami Thorpe | 24th December 2015

For my third video from Australia, I want to talk about realistic expectations. Many of you will be thinking about making changes in the new year, so I thought it'd be helpful to explore what's realistic and achievable.

We put a lot of expectations upon ourselves when embarking on a programme of change but if you're not prepared to do what it takes - and you might not always be - you'll cause even more conflict in your system, making your goals even harder to achieve.

For example, if you're having negative thoughts about your body when you want to lose weight or get fit, those negative thoughts will create cortisol, which will prevent your body from being in as good a state as it could be, so you don't achieve what you want to. Watch the video to find out more:

We're all a work in progress, so decide what's your realistic optimum state. What quality of life would you like? What small adjustments could you make that won't set off your own negative thoughts? What are you keen to change and what are the things you probably won't do?

I look forward to hearing from you.
