Have you ever been so motivated to try something new, but then a small voice inside your head tells you “I’m too big,” or “I’m not strong enough,” or “what if I drop this heavy weight on my foot, ACK!”? These thoughts that try to keep you from change are a natural part of the human experience. What if there was a way to push forward, make the changes you want, and succeed at what you set your mind to? The unpredictable becomes predictable, and hello SUCCESS is knocking at your door!
Here are 3 ways you can say “bye bye” to negative thoughts and “hello” to positive ones:
1. Recognize that there is a part of you that’s always averse to change. Acknowledging that fact gives it less power over your emotions.
2. Once you understand what’s been holding you back, pick the absolute smallest, most manageable thing you can do today to move you forward.
3. Lastly, now that you understand where you came from and where you’re going you will create a positive mantra about yourself like “stand stall and be proud” or “strength comes from within”. Repeat your personal Mantra to yourself 3 times in the morning when you wake up, and every night before you fall asleep. These mantras will motivate you to keep moving forward.
My tip for you is to value who you are this moment in time and to stand tall in it. Use your past experiences to help you understand where you are right now and know that commitment to change is a decision that you continue to make every single day. Feel empowered to know that you are in charge of your own health and that you are taking all of the necessary steps to become the fit, healthy person you were always meant to be.
