The Power of the Mind
“Where I am today, is where my mind put me, and where I’ll be tomorrow, is where my mind will put me.”
If your reading this blog it is probably safe to say that you are trying to lose weight, or in one way or another you want to change your body. If that is you, then the first thing you must do in order to make a lasting change to your body is; you must change your mind, and you must change your way of thinking. In my opinion, we should all strive to be in complete control of ourselves and our lives. If that is what you desire then you must understand the steps necessary to get there.
In order to take control of your life, you must first take control of yourself. In order to take control of yourself, you must first take control of your body. In order to take control of your body, you must first take control of your mind, and to take control of your mind, you must first change your way of thinking. When you think about yourself, or your life, or your family, or anything in your environment, do you think as a pessimist, or as an optimist?
When you wake up in the morning what are the first thoughts in your head? Do you dread the idea of peeling yourself off that comfortable warm mattress of yours? Do you get exhausted just thinking about the exhaustion you’ll encounter once you get in to work? Do you think about the bills you can’t pay, the money you don’t have, the car that’s in the shop, the economy that’s going down the drain, the world that’s coming to an end? When you look in the mirror to put on your clothes, do you think about how fat you are, how your clothes don’t fit, or how out of shape you’ve become? Remember this “Where ever your thoughts lie, YOU, will be there lying next to them.”
“You are what you eat,” have you ever heard that saying before? Well I believe it’s more like “You are what you think.” It’s seems like the norm for of us to think of the negative in our lives. But then how is it that we could possibly expect anything positive to come our way? If you look in your mirror and think to yourself “I’m so fat!” Well I hate to tell you but, that’s probably not going to change, unless your way of thinking changes.
We need to see ourselves as that slim and lean person. We need to visualize us fitting into those tight clothes. We need to act as if we are already that Man or that Woman that we so desire to be. When you look in the mirror instead of thinking to yourself “I’m so fat,” think to yourself “I’m not that fat guy any more, this is a new me, and I am becoming the person that I was meant to be.”
When you step out of your house you need to be the new you. You need to get excited because you are a new person, and I guarantee people will notice the difference in you right away, and so will you. The mind is by far the most powerful muscle in the human body, hands down. However, a lot of us seem to be naive in this matter, and don’t really understand how much of an impact our thought process has on our bodies and on our quality of life. So my challenge to you all today is to change your way of thinking, and soon, you to can tap into the power of your mind.
