Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Healthy Changes: Can you Trust Yourself?

In my book, Today's the Day 7 Week Fitness Plan, and my coaching program, I talk about exercising as it applies to your body, spirit and soul (mind, will and emotions). What I want to focus on in this post is exercising your will and why it is something most people are overlooking.

Have you made New Year Resolutions that have already been forgotten? How often do you think about making some change, either to your diet or some other area of your lifestyle, that doesn't last more than a week or two?

Have you wondered why that is?

Well perhaps you don't consider your will a muscle as I do. The easiest way to exercise that will “muscle” is to make and keep promises to yourself! Sounds extraordinarily simple doesn't it? It actually is but the truth is, most people don't keep their word to themselves. These are the same people who would never go back on their word to their spouse, child, parent or friend. Yet they continually do so to themselves.

In working with many people with respect to this very issue, I think the core of the problem is that they don't feel they are worthy. That may sound odd to you but if deep down you don't think you're worth taking care of, you will continually sabotage your best efforts to do so.

So the first step is to honestly assess whether you have feelings of unworthiness. They may be well buried and camouflaged but if you constantly struggle with following through, this very well may be an issue for you. As women and moms in particular we are used to putting other people's needs (children, spouses, parents) before our own. And that's necessary at times and a good thing. Don't misunderstand.

I have no doubt you are a person of integrity with yourself as well as others, Debbie.

Ann, I'd never thought of making and keeping promises to myself in light of my health. I appreciate that new perspective. I want to be a person of integrity with myself too!

Absolutely Angela - baby steps are powerful!

Ann, I think the tip on making small promises to yourself and keeping them is a great way for someone to get started! People always think they need to make this huge change at once to be effective and that is not true. Then, they don't keep their promise. However, if they can build upon their steps, they can be successful!
