Here’s an important question.
What’s the biggest lie you tell yourself that keeps you from having the life, the body, or the health that you want?
Maybe it’s something like one of these.
“I’m too busy to exercise and lose weight.”
“I’m just lazy and can’t stick to anything.”
“Nothing ever works out the way I want.”
These kinds of self-assessments are so common that there’s a term for them: self-limiting beliefs.
We all have them.
They’re all B.S.
And you can overcome each and every one.
Our beliefs come from our thoughts. And while you can’t choose whatever thought crosses your mind, you can choose which you grab onto and worry about, which ones you build into big scary monsters – when they would’ve just drifted away into nothingness if you’d let them.
Instead, hold onto the positive beliefs you have about yourself. And if you don’t have any of those, then look at yourself objectively until you find something that makes you feel good about yourself.
You did well in school…
You volunteer at a non-profit…
You used to love to run every day after work…
Whatever it is, nurture that positive belief and repeat it to yourself whenever that nasty self-doubt starts talking in your head.
It’s up to you what you focus on. So, choose what will set you free from negative self-lies and guide you toward positivity and growth. Say it out loud. Write it in your journal. Tell a friend, family member, or coach.
This might take repeated effort. But you know what? You’re worth it! And we are here to help you create new healthy habits and beliefs about yourself.
