How To Be A Rebel With A Cause – Mindset Monday


How To Be A Rebel With A Cause – Mindset Monday

“For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.”  – Star Wars

I saw newest Star Wars movie Rogue One the other day. It was an absolutely amazing movie!

It got me thinking a lot about rebellion (the whole theme of the movie, haha). The main characters in the movie are rebelling against the status quo… refusing to be put into submission by those believed to have all the power.

When have you been REBELLIOUS in your life?

When you were a teenager maybe?

When you were a young kid trying to get your way?

In school, trying to be unique or bend rules you didn’t understand?

Today, I want to talk to you about a different kind of rebellion. Being a REBEL is not always a bad thing, despite what your parents or school teachers may have said.

A REBEL is someone who strongly opposes something or somebody.

Here are FIVE THINGS you should rebel against TODAY so you can change your life and your future for the better:

#1 Self Deprecation

“Remember, a Jedi’s strength flows from the force. But beware. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side are they.” – Yoda, Star Wars

rebel, cause, happiness

Self deprecation is the act of reprimanding oneself by belittling, undervaluing, or disparaging oneself, or being excessively modest.

Do you know someone like that? Maybe even yourself? No need to place guilt or blame, just be aware of it and decide to take action in a way that serves you and the goals you have set for yourself to live your best life.

#2 Limiting Expectations and Beliefs

“It takes strength to resist the dark side. Only the weak embrace it! It is more powerful than you know. And those who oppose it are more powerful…” – Star Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi

Sometimes finding success is as easy as changing our beliefs about ourselves and our capabilities. It can be as easy as changing your mind.

Have you ever drawn a circle around an ant? The ant will wander all around the circle assuming it can’t get out – even though nothing is holding it back. This is what our limiting beliefs do to us! They are a line we draw in our mind for some reason or another but often don’t exist in the actual world.

#3 The Assumption That You Know It All

“In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way.” – Star Wars

rebel, cause, happiness

There is a little something inside you called the EGO that wants to be right all the time! It’s that feeling that something is rising in your throat when someone is trying to tell you something that you think is woo-woo or bogus or wrong…

But when we REBEL against this feeling and allow ourselves to be open and teachable, we also become more likable, and we learn a ton of new stuff!

#4 Doubt

“Do or do not. There is no try.” – Star Wars

rebel, cause, happiness

Rebel against your doubts. TRUST yourself and the life you are creating. Make decisions from a place of love, always. Leave fear and doubt at the door and walk through with grace, confidence and love. It’s amazing what happens when you stop caring so much about things you cannot control and instead, focus on what you can control.

#5 Resistance

“The longing you seek is not behind you. It is in front of you.” – Star Wars

rebel, cause, happiness

I want you to try something. Every day when you come up against some sort of f, I want you to PUSH THROUGH IT.

Resistance is when we are presented with something OUTSIDE of our comfort zone. We feel anxious, nervous, unsure, like something is pushing back against us.

When you learn to PUSH THROUGH resistance… everything changes! And you begin to truly LIVE. It’s absolutely amazing.

My Challenge For You

I challenge you to be a rebel with a cause.

Take that rebellious inner spirit I know you’ve got inside you and choose to oppose these things that are holding you back and keeping you from the happiness you deserve.

If you’re up for the challenge, give this post a big thumbs up and write your name in the comments.

Remember, we’re in this together.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
