LLP 349: Are You Actually Mentally Fit To Get Healthy?

So, let’s talk about your mental readiness to get healthy…

Since we are in January, that also means that it is New Year’s resolution season again. And in my ten years of experience as an attending physician, I’ve heard countless people say “This year, I want to be healthier.”

But really, most of those people lose track of their New Year’s resolutions around February and March.

That raises the question: Are you really mentally ready to get healthy? Because getting healthy is not going to happen overnight; it is a process that involves many steps and may take a long time.

So join me in this episode as I help you answer that question, and enlighten you about the true essence of setting goals for yourself.

Notable Quotes:

“Have a good enough reason so that when the obstacle that can get you in trouble, that can knock you off of your destination… comes around, you can trace back and say ‘Remember the why.” – Dr. Berry Pierre

“Yes, the obstacle may come. Yes, it may knock you down. But your ‘why’ needs to be strong enough to get you back up.” – Dr. Berry Pierre

“If you are going for the stars, and not having the steps and processes to get there, you are going to be frustrated that you don’t get the goal.” – Dr. Berry Pierre
