Let me clarify. What I mean by fat is 1 of 2 things( depending on your perspective).I am looking at "Fat" as unhealthy or imperfection. So in some ways we all unhealthy( or at least have unhealthy habits) and absolutely none of us are perfect ( some may think they are...#realitycheck).
So again, the question posed is...Why are we "FAT"? I believe we are FAT because we are afraid, irresponsible and lazy. I'm sure I've hit a couple of buttons out there. Now before everyone has meltdown and accuses me of being an ass please keep reading.
When I refer to being afraid- we are AFRAID- to fail; to be wrong; of change; of the "truth"; that we are not enough! Guess what- One-it's ok to be afraid. The difference is what we do when we are afraid-do we run or do we face the fear? Two- we will be "wrong";change happens everyday to all of us; the truth is we/you are enough and help is only a request away.
What I mean by irresponsible is that we are victims to the feedback that comes to us. We do not own ourselves and our lives. We try so hard to "keep up the Jones's" or blame this or that for what happens in our lives; or simply ignore the feedback-"maybe if we don't pay attention "it" will go away"? Nope, ignorance is not bliss! Ownership is not as scary as people believe...it might be hard at times but trust me being a victim to feedback is harder.
And what I mean by lazy is we are comfortable-we tend to avoid things that we don't like or feel we aren't "good" at. We stay in our comfort zones because we think that is where we are most effective- #thinkagain. Have you heard the phrase "you will keep getting what you get if you keep doing what you're doing". Growth, learning and progress only happen when change happens.
So if and when you are being "fat" think about what you are afraid of or how you are being "victimized" and/or are you in your comfort zone? And to help resolve you "fatness" ask yourself three questions; What's working? What's not working? What can I Do to to help things work more effectively?
Remember...YOU ARE THE DIFFERENCE!!
