How often does that voice in your head tell you you’re going to fail before you even start?
Then when you prove yourself right, your inner mean girl tells you how much you suck, and why are you even trying to lose weight when you simply can’t do it?
Here’s the problem with that negative thinking that you can’t do what you need to do to reach your goals. Instead of helping you get the results you want, you make failure a self-fulfilling prophecy.
When you think or believe you can’t do something, you can’t. You make that your reality.
When you believe you can, you do!
Seriously, what you think and believe is so important. It’s key.
Weight loss, and success at pretty much everything, is all about how you think.
So is failure.
You see, what you focus on grows.
As I’ve heard Tara Brach say many times on her wonderful podcast, good experiences slide off us like Teflon and bad ones stick like Velcro.
So if you remember and focus on all the times you over-ate or binged, you’ll see yourself as someone who overeats or binges and can’t lose weight.
But what if you flipped the scenario?
Stay tuned to learn about your brain’s amazing stimuli filtration system, and how you can flip those BS thoughts on their head to make it much easier to achieve your goals.
