EP. #85: “That’s Just the Way I am!” is a Big Lie

That's Just the Way I am! is a BIg Lie | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Do you ever think or say to others, “That’s just the way I am”?

Do you believe that you can’t change certain things about yourself or your life, even though it is holding you back? 

Do you believe that certain characteristics or habits are just part of your personality, and that you have no ability to change?

Are you afraid to try something new because  you might not be good at it?

If that describes you, the good news is that you’re absolutely wrong! Being wrong can sometimes be a good thing.

You see, “That’s just the way I am” is one of the biggest lies you can tell yourself. 

It’s merely an excuse to avoid doing something that you CAN do, but  find hard.

I want you to challenge that belief because it’s keeping you stuck in any number of ways, including being stuck in your old eating habits and at a weight that may not be healthy. 

Listen to learn about the two mindsets people how, which one results in more success and happiness, and how to get that mindset so that you can achieve your goals.

Carol Dweck, the author of the book Mindset, says, “Change can be tough, but I’ve never heard anyone say it wasn’t worth it.”
