Monday Motivation: Cook it in a crock pot

We see people do it in all aspects of their life and work, only to wonder why they are struggling. They live and work a binge-purge life. We are an instant gratification society so we want quick fixes and quick rewards. We want to cook life in a microwave…now, now, now. The reality of it is that life needs to be cooked in a crock pot…slow and steady. Trust me, I know firsthand. For those of you who know me, you know I am fanatical about results and getting stuff done. I definitely have an element of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). This is something I work and struggle with every day.

Let’s use diet for an example because I know this is something most of us can relate too. Someone eats like crap for months or years only to be fed up with what they see in the mirror, or get scared to death when they hear what their doctor has to say about their health. So, they decide they are going to make a radical change and do it now. So what do most people do? They virtually stop eating and start exercising like crazy and lose a whole bunch of weight…great!! Unfortunately they did not create eating habits and a life style which could last.

So, what ends up happening to most people? They burn out after a period of time and not only gain the weight back, but put on even a few more pounds than they started with. Sound familiar? Then the vicious cycle starts again a few months or years later…Purge-Binge-Purge-Binge-Purge-Binge-Purge-Binge-DEAD. Now, that is no way to live a life. When someone is ready to make a change like this, whether it be our weight or in any area of our F-5 (Faith – Family – Friends – Fitness – Finance), we need to make decisions and make commitments we can keep not just for a week, or a month or a year. We need to make commitments we can keep for a lifetime.

You can’t NOT go to church for years and then go 7 days a week for 3 months only to burn out. What can you commit to for a lifetime? Figure out a crock pot Faith Plan.
You can’t be a workaholic and never spend any time with your family and friends for years and then spend every moment with them. Figure out a crock pot family and friends plan.
You can’t eat like a pig and never exercise for years and then only drink water and work out 2 hours a day, 7 days a week. Figure out a crock pot fitness plan.
You can’t spend every penny you make, and then some, for years and then save every penny you make and never do anything or spend anything. Figure out a crock pot financial plan
The crock pot method rules…cook it up!!
