Is the Fear of Missing Out CAUSING YOU to Miss out? Does it keep you from exchanging things of less value for things of far GREATER value? Let’s talk about how that’s affecting your health.
Hi, it’s Greg, the no head trash health coach and this is the No Head Trash Guide to the Fear of Missing out.
Hey, we’ve all got head trash so keep listening if you want to be honest about it.
I’ve got a confession to make. As a health coach even I have gotten STUCK believing the head trash full of dumb reasons people don’t take action toward their Optimal Health. I guess I’m just crazy believing that anyone who wants results would be willing to take steps to get them. We think LOGIC will prevail, but logic has nothing to do with it when the reasons we give aren’t the REAL REASONS.
Why do you want Optimal Health in the first place? Because you have a LIST of the results and benefits you’d receive if you were at that optimal weight doing the right things, living your ultimate life. But in the back of our minds, our society has convinced us we should be able to get what we want without having to sacrifice ANYTHING AT ALL. And it’s a LIE.
Maybe you think there is a trick or magic bullet you’ve missed. Maybe You’ve tried in the past and failed. You starved yourself and denied yourself and fell victim to the RECOIL of an unbalanced strategy that was unsustainable. You want to find the plan that gives you what you want without requiring you to miss out on anything. Maybe OUT LOUD you’re saying its bad timing, or you can’t justify the money… really seriously? Let’s not get started talking about the money you’re already spending to satisfy those cravings or the things you’ll buy on a whim and sell next year at the garage sale. But your health? The most valuable possession you have in life? The thing you’d mortgage your house to buy medicine to keep alive? Let’s not go there. I’ve got too many people telling me how much money I’ve saved them.
So, let me tell you what’s really happening. This demon, this ENEMY I call FOMO – the fear of missing out – is causing you to miss out.
Our program is so easy I find myself giving people the impression it won’t cost you anything to get your optimal health … Well let me tell you something. What costs you nothing, is worth nothing. If you want your health, you’re going to have to choose it and do what it takes to sustain it. Yes we can make it easier than doing it alone but only you can make the choice to have optimal health.
The truth is, unless you’re willing to TRADE UP, to sacrifice some things of lesser value to get something FAR MORE VALUABLE – you won’t succeed in any area of life. Are you ready to quit if you don’t lose 20 years of weight gain in 2 months? Is it really such a sacrifice to make healthy choices and get a healthy body? Do you put a time limit on weight gain?
The most valuable possession you have is your health? Do you want to explain to your family why a box of donuts or your favorite fast food chain was more important than having the time and energy to spend with them?
If you’re afraid of missing out, I challenge you to make a list of all the things you’re missing out on right now because of your current state of health. Because until you’re willing to make some simple exchanges and pursue a lifestyle of health, you’re going to be slave to the fear of missing out.
No matter what you’re saying out loud, what excuses you’re using, there is one thing clear that we need to get straight right now. You BELIEVE you’re going to MISS OUT or have to deny yourself something you want and you’re making the decision that IT IS more important than your health.
And if that’s true, then I can’t help you.
Get rid of the head trash and the choices will become easy. You can make traction every single day toward the person you truly want to be. Let’s do breakthrough together.
