Love Thy Self
August 22, 2016
I kid you not
This is what we are going to talk about
You see last week I had one of my clients reach out to me about her negative self-talk
And how she thinks this is actually what has been holding her back,
Why she has failed in the past
And in this one statement I could feel the pain
The realization of what she had been doing
And in this moment it broke my heart and gave me great joy, all in one moment
Let me explain
It broke my heart because I got it, I understand this pain, if you have seen yourself in a certain light for so long, it is really difficult to change that point of view or even believe that you can change at all.
It gave me great joy at the same point because once you realize this is what you are doing, half the battle towards making a change has happened.
Now I can see when people are holding themselves back with negative talk
It becomes very clear, very quickly
And this is the big but
Most people can’t handle being told this and if you do tell them, they wont make the change
However, with encouragement and patience, if you come to the realization yourself, well that is when the magic happens.
Because you can’t force anyone to this point
It is the same with anything health and fitness and making a change if you aren’t ready
It won’t happen
Plain and simple
So today, I want to give you a nudge
To turn and look internally
To take note of the words you use when you are talking to yourself
(Don’t worry you’re not crazy, I might be, but you’re not for talking to yourself. Trust me I’m a mad man)
But seriously do
Are you using negative self-talk
You cannot lose the weight
You are just a fat person and you will fail
Even as simple as you can’t do that it’s just not you.
These things are crippling
Focus on positive,
Not only can you lose this weight
You are going to!
No questions asked
Believe it with everything you have
And I think you will quickly notice some dramatic changes in how you feel and how you respond to your training and diet.
That’s it for today
Until next time,
