Your hidden habits. You can let them kill you. Or liberate you.
I watched a friend of mine make herself a cup of coffee.
Like lots of other people, she’s looking to lose weight.
And one of the things she’s done is change her lunchtime choices over from high fat, high carbohydrate choices to stuff with more protein, more fiber and more vitamins.
So I did a double take when I watched her put the creamer in her coffee.
Now the last thing I want to do is to spy on people’s personal habits, or be the “food police.”
But I watched an incredibly long pour of nondairy creamer (the exact one in the photo above) into her cup.
By the time she was done it looked more like chocolate milk than coffee.
Just for fun, I took a look at the ingredients. Based on sugar grams per serving, the number of servings in the container and the amount she put in, I’m guessing there were at least 25 grams of sugar in that cup of coffee.
That’s about as much sugar as in a 12 ounce can or regular cola.
They can really help you.
Or they can really hurt you.
It really goes back to what your current mental and emotional state is.
Are you happy?
Are you dissatisfied?
(Hint: Dissatisfied is a good thing.)
Are you angry? Depressed? Desperate? Scared?
Because for many of us, the choices we make…the habits we set reflect how we feel about ourselves.
My friend is an amazing person. And it seems like she’s ready to make some real changes to her diet. And these will have real benefits to her health.
And when she gets exposed to hidden habits, she’ll have a real chance to decide if she wants to change them.
Maybe she will. Maybe she won’t.
But I’m pretty sure whatever she chooses to do, it won’t be because she’s resistant to feeling better and being successful.
How about you?
Are you ready to take on your hidden habits?
Are you ready to break patterns that keep you poor? Unhealthy? Overweight? Lonely?
Do you want to replace them with your heart’s desire?
Are you open to the success, happiness and wealth that’s on the other side?
