Positive thinking works!

One of the things that I want to remind you is that you need to think positive.  You have to get out of the “if/then” thinking.

What does that mean?  Well, an example of this is “If I weigh X, then I will feel good.”  Do you find that you do this?  I know that I have and even now, will have to catch myself not to do it.

Stop focusing on then and focus on NOW!  Live as if you have already achieved your goal.

When you start living as if you have acquired these things than you can begin to enjoy the progress that you make instead of waiting till then.

When you feel yourself slipping back into the if/then thinking, change your mental dialogue and get back on track.

YOU can do it!  I BELIEVE in YOU!

The Waiting Game

"If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything, is ready, we shall never begin." ~ Ivan Turgenev
Wow! That's a powerful quote, don't ya think?  When I read it this morning, I immediately thought about all the times that someone said they would join me in a weight loss group, going to the gym  or the time when I thought that I couldn't start a workout program for what ever reason.  I was too busy making excuses and not taking control of my life.
One thing that I've learned over the years is that if you want something, I mean TRULY want something, you won't wait for everything to be ready.  You'll have your goal and you'll decide that now is the time to commit and you will succeed.
