In the same way that an app on your phone is limited by the functions that have been programmed into it, your body is limited by the messages sent by your mind.
If you have the goal of changing your body for the better by dropping pounds and increasing your muscle tone, the first thing to do is to begin with your mindset. It’s a step that far too many well-meaning folks skip in their quest for an improved, healthier body.
My experience has led me to observe that my successful clients who experience the most amazing changes in their body composition and energy levels are the ones that abide by the following Positive Mindset Habits…
1) Positive Mindset Habit #1: Stop Beating Yourself Up
Most of us compare where we are today with where we ultimately want to be.
If you’re bigger that you want to be with the goal of one day getting back to your ole’ self again, what runs through your mind when you look in the mirror?
With a positive mindset you would look at yourself and notice the improvements and progress that you’ve made towards your ultimate goal, no matter how subtle.
With a negative mindset you would look at yourself and only see the gap between what you are today and what you ultimately want to be, and you’d beat yourself up about it.
To be successful with your changing your body, focus on positive improvements and every small step towards your bigger goal.
2) Positive Mindset Habit #2: Do not EVER consider what others think of You
My best clients don’t give one hoot what others think of them. They are focused on their own journey and realize that the only opinion that matters about them is their own.
This small mental shift makes a huge difference when it comes to getting results.
Maintain your focus and energy on your daily fitness goals and resist the urge to compare your progress with others. Do not attempt to decipher what others are thinking about you. The only opinion about you that really matters is your own.
3) Positive Mindset Habit #3: ONLY Think Positive Thoughts About Yourself
Nothing good ever comes from thinking poorly of yourself. I simply can’t emphasize this point enough. Negative self-talk is one of the reasons that most attempts at fat loss and body changes fail.
On the flip side, those who make a daily practice of positive self-talk, by encouraging themselves and focusing on every small step made towards their goal, see incredible results.
Keeping a positive attitude about yourself will help you change your body for the better. It also helps you to keep it healthy in the long run.
