Although there are situations in life where funding higher education can seem impossible, we witness people every day finding solutions to get it done. These individuals simply think differently. They do not accept anything less than their God given potential. I am suggesting that your health should be viewed as at least as valuable as your financial situation. What value is wealth if you do not have the health and vitality to enjoy it? At Imagine Wellness, we work with each individual to overcome any financial obstacles. We have solutions to allow those on fixed budgets and retired to easily move forward.
6. I’m afraid that proper lifestyle changes might isolate me from my friends and family.
It is true that not all of your friends will share your newly found optimism toward taking control of your health. Friends who do not place high priority on their health often play down healthy lifestyle choices. Although they may not mean any negative intent, this behavior is sabotaging. In one of my patient member video’s I discuss this as being all too common and some tips to disarm this behavior in a non- confronting manner. The bottom line is those who truly care for you will support your decision to place your health as a priority.
I will always be open and willing to work with any doctor or health professional you currently have. They also, should be open and willing to do the same if the goal is to optimize health and improve lifestyle choices. This includes reducing and/or eliminating unnecessary medications. A doctor’s main concern and intent should always be to aid in the optimization of health in his/her patients. This begins with Do No Harm. I am always cautious of a physician that dismisses any holistic and natural approach to health. In summary, you are ultimately responsible for your health and therefore, the final decision and direction you wish to pursue.
8. I don’t have the self-discipline to make permanent changes.
Self-discipline is not a trait that we are born with, but one that is developed over time through life experience. Discipline coincides with positive experience. In other words, as your actions result in positive changes you will be inclined to continue these actions. One could look at this as positive habits or simply, discipline. Self-< discipline is also strengthened thru accountability held by loved ones, a friend or a mentor.
9. What happens if I commit to a lifestyle program and then hate the experience and give up?
Life is a series of ups and downs. We do not always enjoy the duties required for the end result we are seeking. It’s funny how these duties or actions can initially seem to be difficult or no fun, but later take on an uplifting emotion. This is because we come to recognize the most meaningful successes we have in life came from such actions. Having a successful marriage; raising children; optimizing our health and becoming financial independent all require discipline and actions that sometimes have us wanting to give up and quit. Those of us who continue to play the game are allowed the pleasures of earned rewards.
10. I don’t have the personal confidence to take action.
Very few of us have a natural born instinct of confidence. This comes from continually taking action even when we are fearful. The actual definition for this is courage. As we continue to develop skills from taking these bold steps, we become less fearful or confident. My friend’s son, Landon, has always lacked confidence as he enters a new sport. He is often hesitant to even giving it a try. Once he jumps in, regardless of the fear, he begins to develop skills that ultimately lead to enjoyment and yes, confidence! We are here to mentor you and support you. We do not judge or chastise. We offer an environment that anyone at any level can feel comfortable and genuinely cared for. As you will become very confident.
