I have in the past written about the difference between being assertive and aggressive – and advocated for the assertive side of life – stating that there’s no need to bring the police into the picture!!!! (Referencing an incident I had –or created, depending on your point of view – in an Italian restaurant in Little Italy, at which time I specifically said at a minimum of three times, “NO BUTTER!” Nevertheless, when served, my food was swimming in butter! It got ugly!).
However, I was WRONG. True enough, although it is the first time that I’m wrong! But I’m woman enough to admit it.
There is nothing wrong with being AGGRESSIVE. In fact, it is the RIGHT PATH!!! It is the WAY of the WEIGHT LOSS WARRIOR!!!!
Aggressive energy is an essential part of being human. Aggressive energy will always be with you. It is an integral and meaningful part of you and it is up to you whether or not you use it for good or ill or even worse, deny it altogether.
When you deny aggression, you are abdicating tapping into this natural and vital well of energy and power. It is your natural resource that can make all the difference.
The aggressive energy that rumbles through you is simply the Warrior within that is thirsting to accept responsibility, wanting to come out and lead YOU to victory!
You have, in our time together, made the decision to permanently remove your excess weight; you have looked into your future; filled up on confidence; spoken words that energize and motivate; fed the soul and the body and now …
It is TIME!!! To let YOUR WARRIOR OUT!!!!
YOUR WARRIOR … gets things done!
… gives you a sense of yourself as Champion of Your Vision.
… slays the dragons of fear and doubt.
… is inspired and optimistic.
And when your warrior runs into obstacles your warrior recognizes them as tests and does not abandon her Quest …
… YOUR WARRIOR … battles on.
Your warrior … perseveres in the face of difficulties, in the face of temptation.
Good Intentions Are NOT ENOUGH. Sacrifice is necessary.
How you and your warrior bond together now will determine the outcome of your story.
Will you live your best life, or will you remain in bondage to food, emotional eating, and the circumstances that life throws in your path?
Your Warrior actually enjoys discipline, planning, and boundaries. Your Warrior does not stamp its feet and act like a 4 year-old; your warrior sees the above as opportunity to live life to the fullest.
Be a Warrior. Be a Weight Loss Warrior.
Spread the word … NOT the icing,
