Let’s walk through the familiar chain reaction of events that you have unwittingly followed for years. Let’s take the illustrative example of weight loss. You are likely operating under several unhelpful assumptions. You think you can’t lose weight unless you give up all pleasure and become a monk. What if you can’t lose the weight? What if you can’t keep it off? It’s just easier to keep doing what you’re doing rather than risking failure. Another assumption you may have is that you lack energy and time. You’re just too tired to go cook for yourself and exercise every day; it’s easier just to grab fast food.
