That’s what the word decide means.
I think we get the word decide confused with “try” or “test”.
It has the same ending as homicide and genocide… basically to “kill off”.
When you are deciding you are killing off all other options.
If you wake up in the morning and make this DECISION very deliberately (that means you don’t just try), you will have more success in getting to your goals.
So what does this practically look like?
Upon waking, you say a verse, meditate in prayer, or read your Bible (you don't have to do all three...) giving your day to God. Then you pray over your day and the decision you are making with God to honor your temple.
Then (as I recommend to my clients) you are going to remind yourself and put your attention toward 3 things… all before you take on any other tasks of the day.
If your brain wants to offer you that you don’t have enough time to do this every morning, call out the lie.
This whole process will take you no more than 10 minutes but once you're good at it, maybe 5.
How many minutes do you spend on Facebook? How many hours have you spent spinning in your head about how you hate how you look and feel?
Take that time and use it to support yourself and make progress toward your goals.
