The Power of Reaction vs. Intention – Mindset Monday


The Power of Reaction vs. Intention – Mindset Monday

“What happens is not as important as how you react to what happens.” – Ellen Glasgow

Have you ever had moments in your life where you feel like you are completely powerless?

Like life is just being THROWN at you… like the waves are crashing down without even giving you a chance to breathe?

We all experience ups and downs. This is part of our life journey.

But there is a power that we have that many of us are giving away without a thought…

The power to react.

When a pleasant or unpleasant situation comes around, it is a common habit to react automatically.

reaction, intention, life

For example, when your boss doesn’t like something you’ve worked on, you might groan and grimace and get upset.

Or maybe someone cuts in front of you in traffic and you flash the birdie without a second thought.

The secret to “leveling up” in life, a secret to more peace, better health, less stress, more empowerment, a clearer mind…

It’s living with INTENTION and not out of REACTION.

A study at Columbia University found that your PERCEPTION and REACTION to any given event was more important to your overall health than how much you encountered stress.

Meaning… two people could be experiencing the exact same stressors in their life but one of them is much healthier and happier because of how they CHOOSE TO react to the stressful situations.

You are not a victim of your life! You have the power to CHOOSE what your life will make of you.  

PEOPLE and SITUATIONS are powerless without your reaction!

When stimulus arises, when (bleep) hits the fan… pause. Take a breath. And observe it. Then act with intention.

As you practice this technique over and over again, it will build neural pathways in your mind so that eventually it will be automatic.

Stop giving away your power. I promise this practice has the potential to completely change your life.

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!
