"First day enthusiasm"
Think back to the last time you accomplished something you were really proud of. Maybe you improved your fitness level or got on the path to healthier eating. Something came over you in the very beginning didn’t it?
I refer to it as “first day enthusiasm”. A can-do, nothing-can-stop-me feeling.
You were super motivated, set a goal and got to working on it. Day after day you took steps towards reaching that goal: you went to the gym, changed out the junk food for health food.
What was that feeling? You may even be feeling it right now. What is it that is coursing through your veins, perking up your ears and making you feel the way you feel right now?
It’s called inspiration.
Years ago I was introduced to a quote on what it means to be inspired. It comes from the ancient Indian sage Patanjali:
Maybe the extraordinary “project” that inspired you was a desire to improve your health. The feeling that came with it was inspiration. In this state of inspiration, your mind transcended all limitations and dormant forces came alive to assist you.
You held onto that feeling for a while and made some changes in your food choices...but then after a week or two, you lost it. Feelings of resistance started creeping in, and although you really wanted to make healthier choices, you were unable to break the chains of those old habits.
Did I just share the story of your life?
Well guess what? Inspiration wasn’t lost. Not at all! You just stopped allowing it.
Here’s the thing- with that initial spark of inspiration, you had a vision, didn’t you? A vision of who you wanted to be. And it felt...possible, didn’t it? Otherwise you would’ve never gone after it in the first place.
Something inside of you was asking to be born.
That something was a burning desire- a desire that won’t go away, no matter what. Try and ignore it and it taps on your shoulder ever-so-softly to remind you...sometimes even for a lifetime. And no matter how hard you try to push it away, like a beach ball held under water...it keeps popping up!
Where do you think this burning desire comes from?
- Thin air?
- YOU...the person named Mel, Michelle, or Michael?
That’s what we think...but no. It is a gift from your Higher power. Some call that Higher Power God, Source, Nature, Spirit, the Divine. It doesn’t matter what you call it; what matters is the feeling you receive when you are allowing it.
Do you realize the tremendous power that lies within you? In fact (now hold onto your seat) the very fact that you are able to experience the burning desire for better health in the first place, and the fact that it won’t go away no matter what, means the end result of that desire exists in you...waiting to bloom, waiting to be born.
It’s already complete.
It’s already given.
Matthew chapter 7 verse 7 says: "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
What about those sparks of inspiration?
Where do you think those come from? Thin air? You? No. They are another gift from God. How do I know? It’s revealed right in the definition.
From the Greek word ‘theopneustos’, inspiration means ‘God-breathed’.
So, when you are inspired to do something big or small, that spark is God breathing into you, giving you the fuel necessary to bring that burning desire to life.
What if you could find a way to tap into the God-given gift of inspiration on demand, whenever you needed it? How far do you think you could go?
Ultimately, that is what the 11-Day SPROUT! program is all about! It offers a well-lit path to guide you to that place inside of you that is always shining bright.
As a result, healthy decisions become more automatic in nature. You begin to feel an inner pull, a force, guiding you to make these choices. And before long, evidence of the well-being that’s already inside of you, begins to reveal itself.
The 11-Day SPROUT! program offers carefully-selected tools to support you on your journey. And...I will be with you the whole time, like a little Mel in your pocket.
The program is designed for you to take at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. And once you enroll, it's yours to keep forever! This means you can revisit it any time you'd like.
