"I'll start on Monday"
How many times have you heard someone say this, or worse still said this yourself? More times than you can remember would be my guess! We're great at deciding that we need to start something new on a certain day of the week, or landmark date such as January 1st. We can't possibly start something on a Tuesday, or Friday, or 3rd or 24th of a month.
One question I ask all my clients if they make noises about planning to start on a particular date is "Why not now?" Typically they will come up with an answer of "I'm not ready"...... or "I need to plan it properly"..... or best and most common is "I don't actually know".
The reality is there is absolutely no reason that we can't simply decide to just be different. Why not wake up on a Tuesday morning and decide to quit smoking? Why not decide on Friday that you're going to join a gym that day and eat well over the weekend. Why not decide on a Tuesday that you want to challenge your fear of elevators and drive to a tall car park, or book a session with someone like me?
There is categorically no reason to wait. There is a great Chinese proverb that states "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time plant a tree is now". "If you are truly wanting to live a different life, in whatever way that may be, just do it today. Don't worry if right now you don't know how to start or what to do first, we can address that next! The important thing is to decide that today is your day!
