We have all been told a time or two, and probably mentioned it as well, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Looking for, and believing in shortcuts is really the same. There’s no such thing.
Checkout lines in the grocery stores are lined with impulse purchases. I will promise you that there will be a magaizine touting the latest and greatest breakthrough in weight loss, another “secret” that has gone undiscovered the last 2,500 years. On the cover will be a thin person smiling from ear to ear, holdng a pair of pants 8-9 sizes larger than who they are today. A caption over the model tells of how grateful they are to the diet program they chose, and how much weight was lost in a very short period of time, along with the endorsement of some celebrity who’s been out of circulation the last 15 years, so you order the program. You also order the food that goes with the program, exercise equipment designed only for the program, and dvd.
What you will discover next is exactly what happens anytime we buy into shortcuts. Instead of following a proven process, you simply wasted your money. Invariably in the case of diet programs, in small print are the words…Results not typical. You must eat properly and exercise in conjunction with this program.
The tendency for most when desired results or expectations are not realized in our prescribed time period is to quit, and this tendency is not only for those trying to lose weight, but anything in life requiring a process without shortcuts. In the case of weight loss, it took time to put the weight on, it will take time to take it off.
To be successful at anything, we must follow a process. There’s a well worn path made by others for us to follow. Exercise patience and relax, what you desire most is on it’s way, and will be delivered to you right on time, when it’s supposed to be delivered, and that’s not always when we want it. We often see not so good people who seem to always be on the receiving end, always getting the good while you seem to be on the working and waiting side. Remember this: they may be receiving now, but that is always short lived. The Universe has a way of leveling the field and rewards those who do follow the process, you need to have long vision. Keep your focus and attention on your process. Stay patient, stay faithful and I will promise you your envisioned life is not only possible, it’s inevitable. Keep the peace and God bless.
