Why Do You Really Want To Change Your Health

Change Takes Making A Definitive Decision

Written on October 01, 2019 • 2 Minute Read

In order to see a change in your life, you need to make a conscious decision of why right now you are ready to make a change, what that change will be and how it will be done and then acting on that decision immediately.

Are You Really Ready For Change

When thinking about starting anything new, like a nutrition or fitness program, an exercise called The 5 Whys is a great place to start.

The 5 Whys was a system originally used by the Toyota Motor Corporation.

Using this process it makes it very simple to reveal our deep motivations of why we want something.

Then, whatever answer you come up with, ask why again. And so on, five times.

As you answer these questions:

  • Be honest about your intentions
  • Be curious about what's beneath the surface
  • Be compassionate with yourself

What Are Your 5 Whys

  1. Why Are You Doing This Fitness Challenge
  2. Why Do You Want To Achieve This
  3. And Why Is That Important
  4. And Why Will That Make A Difference
  5. And Why Will That Matter

My 5 Whys For Getting Into Health & Fitness

For me, the reason was simple, I wanted to be able to help as many people as possible and what better way than health and fitness, everyone in the world can do better in these areas.

My 5 whys looked like this.

  1. I want to be able to help people
  2. I enjoy serving people and making their lives better
  3. I don't like seeing people feeling sick or stuck in their lives, not being able to achieve their goals
  4. I know what it's like to feel sick and tired with life and not going anywhere and helping people work through those problems makes them feel better about their lives
  5. Once I gave my life to the Lord, I made a promise, you help me get through this, and I'll help anyone you put in front of me
