I’m sure by now that you’ve heard of or seen “The Secret”. Among its many teachings, it tells you this: What you think about you bring about. What you focus on expands. If you spend your days thinking about how upset you are with a particular person, how fat you’ve become, or how depressed you are over your financial situation, you are only digging yourself a monstrous hole to lay in. You will get even more angry, fatter, or more depressed…or all three!
Instead of focusing on what is bad in your life, focus on the good! Trust me, you’ll be a whole lot happier! If you want to change your eating habits and sculpt your body, keep a mental picture of what you want to look like! Spend at least 5 minutes looking at a picture of the body you desire every morning. Go through the feelings you would have if you were in that position. What could you do? Think of the confidence you would enjoy! Be sure to do the same thing right before you go to bed.
But, because pain is probably the best motivator I know, I would also like you to think about what not changing will cost you. If you keep going where you’re headed, what will it cost you physically, mentally, emotionally and financially? What will not changing cost your loved ones? If you keep smoking, drinking, overeating, doing watever it is that is causing you your discomfort, what will you feel like? What will you look like? What will the quality of your life be? Theses are all great questions to ask yourself to light that fire deep inside.
So light the fire right now and look at that inspiring picture every day to keep it burning!
