"Who are you and what values do you want to demonstrate in your life? Find the drive in you that's so strong it could motivate you to create a new kind of life for yourself. Take the time to discover the personal values that are strong enough to drive you...."
In my 2013 goal planning, this is the question that is tripping me up the most when it comes to weight loss. And honestly, I'm not sure what to make of that. This should be easy, right? I mean, I know what my personal values are - or at least I thought I did.
Generosity. Integrity. Adventure. Action. Relationships. Independence. Leadership.
But I'm sure not living those lately. And when it comes to the question, "What personal value(s) will drive me to create a new, thin, and fabulous life for myself?" nothing on the above list is making any bells go off. In my gut, they just don't feel like the right answers.
Like I said, the fact that I don't know is disconcerting. I know I've been asleep at the wheel in my life for longer than I care to admit, but have I truly become so far removed from myself that I can't figure this out?
I'm moving forward with my action plan, but I honestly believe this is something I need to get to the bottom of in order to be truly successful with my weight loss goals.
