Inspiring Words of Wisdom

This month I have included two quotes as I love them both and they are each very profound in their simplicity.
Read them carefully and consider what meaning, if any, they may hold for you.

“‘I can’t do it’ never yet accomplished anything;
‘I will try’ has performed wonders.”

– George P. Burnham

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
– Buddha

The first one is particularly relevant to any health goal you may have set yourself recently. Remember practice makes perfect and it is only by practicing over and over that we become able to perform any task.

Think of learning to play a guitar. You cannot (unless you are some superhuman freak of nature) pick up a guitar and know how to play it. You must practice. Daily of you want to be good at it sooner!

This same idea applies to any health goal we may set ourselves. E.g. drinking the recommended 3 litres of water. Just make it a goal to practice- everyday, until it is learned and an ingrained habit 🙂 It is possible!

Think “progress, not perfection!” (Thanks George! ;p)

The second one is an important reminder for us all….How many of us treat ourselves truly well? If you had a friend who talked to you the way you sometimes talk to yourself, would you like to continue spending time with that person? Think about it. It is only through loving yourself that you will respect yourself enough to put you first and look after yourself! 🙂

I hope this months quotes resonated with you and topped up your soul motivation 🙂

Until next month, keep well 🙂

Inspiring Words of Wisdom

“To know and not to do, is not yet to know”

To know and not to do

This is a zen quote I love. It just reinforces that often we think we know something, however, in reality we haven’t completely gotten it. When we truly LIVE something rather than just intellectualise it, only then do we KNOW it. Embodiment is the ultimate knowing.

I encourage my clients that forming a new habit- whether it be a new thought pattern, behaviour or action, requires nothing more than practice. We know the old saying, “practice makes perfect”.
This is the same for anything we are looking to change or improve in our life.

Do not give up and accept that you “can’t” do something or “can’t” think a certain way. Simply acknowledge that you WILL get there, you just need to practice- daily if necessary. And perhaps try many variations of the “same” thing.

And if you are one of those people that say..”I know what I should be eating”, or “I know what I should be doing”….this one is for you…. 😉

Cheers!

Until next month!! xoxoxoxo

I find inspiring quotes really uplift and motivate me, so each month I’ll pick one of my favourites and share it with you.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do 🙂
