Break the Association
This past weekend, my family and I took our trailer out to the beach for the long weekend. When we take the trailer out, it means (for me) that I can be extremely loose with my eating habits and enjoy (sometimes plenty of) wine by the fire. Trailer = gluttony. It’s the association. It’s MY association. I thought about it during our 2 ½ hour car ride out there. Why do we have these associations and why do they constantly limit us from achieving our goals? I decided I was going to break the association this weekend. Was it hard? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely.
Many of us have these associations and we don’t even realize it. Maybe Friday lunches = going to In-N-Out with your co-workers. Maybe working overtime = your excuse to skip your workout. Maybe Girl’s Night = 1,000 calorie meal. It sounds great, but usually we end up with buyer’s remorse.
What is your association? Do you have one and can you break it? Of course you can. Identify it and then cut it off!
