Fitness Motivation – Change Your Mindset

The problem with being fixed in your mindset is that you remain content with everything including your failures because you are too afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Your mindset is so powerful that it can hold you back from achieving things in your life.

We all want change. Right?

Well, wanting and thinking about change is not enough. You have to commit, and commitment can’t be only in your mind, you have to commit with an action. Once you take action, the magic starts and so does a shift in your mindset.

Here is a true story for you from a woman who was 40 pounds overweight:

For years I was 40 pounds overweight, but I didn’t want to really see it. If I did try a diet it was just to support a friend or spouse who was trying to lose. Finally, I realized I needed to lose weight for me, but just thinking that didn’t work.

After various “tries” with different weight loss methods, I finally “got it.” I realized that I not only needed to want to lose weight for me, but I had to work for it. I found a weight loss program and followed it! I also started off slowly, but began working exercise into my routine. It wasn’t easy, but once I made one small change and took action – starting taking short walks at lunch instead of taking a nap in my car – I knew I was headed in the right direction.

Once I took action, it took me less than a year to lose 40 pounds. By that time, I already had the actions (eating right and exercising regularly) as part of my life and my mindset had changed. I wasn’t just dieting, I was living a healthy lifestyle. I was able to keep those 40 pounds off (give or take 5 pounds) for three years. I recently slipped up and gained back ten of those pounds, but instead of just letting things go, I faced the issue and have started to refocus my efforts. In four weeks, I have lost five of those added ten pounds. Thanks to my previous change in mindset, getting back on track wasn’t as difficult.

Fitness Motivation – I WILL Do It.

This past weekend my wife and i were invited to her sister for dinner. After dinner we all headed to the couch to carry on talking and watch a bit of TV. All of a sudden my wife’s sister started shouting “Look look, I want to look like that, like that!!!… that’s the body i want, i wish i could look like that!!”.

The model she was talking about on TV was Bar Refaeli an Israeli model whom in my opinion has an incredible body.

How many times have you said to yourself “I WISH”?…

Well next time you find yourself thinking or saying “I WISH”, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Is this thing i wish for something i really want?
  2. Is this thing i wish for possible to achieve?

If your answer is NO, then forget about wishing for it and move on.

If your answer is YES then that means that you have a strong desire to achieve it. To achieve what you are wishing for takes action. You cant expect to wish for something and BOOM it arrives on your doorstep. You need to work for it. You need to commit to it and never give up.

Stop Saying i Wish and Start Saying i Will
