Do you question if what you’re doing to lose weight is working. Whether your commitment and sacrifice is helping to achieve your goal. Nobody likes to waste their time, energy and especially money on things that will only bring them disappointment.
We all have fears and doubts, but where is our level of confidence at? Usually pretty low if we can’t keep motivated, if we can’t see a brighter future, if we can’t see ourselves achieving our goals.
Why is that? A regular reason is that we over-estimate what we can achieve in the short-term and under-estimate what we can achieve in the long-term. What does that mean? Basically we get demoralised when we don’t achieve our goals overnight, but can’t see with committed action that we will get there in the long term.
It’s easily said that we should have courage, and act despite our fears and doubts. But how do you have courage, and act in faith when you’ve never experience this before?
Belief in your own abilities is the only way that you will overcome this. How will you achieve this? You need to convince yourself that you can do what you want to achieve.
Your self talk, that is, how you talk to yourself, is a very big reason why people succeed or fail. Many people are so negative towards themselves all the time. Do you know anybody like this? Maybe yourself?
You can’t just decide to change your self talk, and then just change it. It’s a habit that has been formed, rehearsed and practiced over a long period of time. So changing your self talk isn’t going to happen overnight. But with consciousness to what you are saying to yourself and not accepting negativity towards yourself, you will start to change and become better for it.
If you want to learn to change your self talk, look to read a copy of Emmet Fox’s book: The Seven Day Mental Diet: How To Change Your Life In A Week. This book is great for understanding and changing your self talk.
Another way is to find success stories of people achieving their goals. It’s a great way to re-motivate yourself when you become low and distressed. One great success story for weight loss https://www.vox.com/2015/7/7/8877041/losing-100-pounds where a man lost 100 pounds (45kg) in weight in one year. Click on the link and read it for yourself. Inspiring.
There are many other success stories like his out there. Just search “weight loss success stories”.
Another way, could be that you use a hypnotherapist to help smooth the path so that you can take action easier. Or you could purchase a hypnosis product to listen to daily, to help change your mindset for weight loss. Both of these methods work, the growing testimonial and scientific evidence that hypnosis has proves that it isn’t just witch doctor voodoo. Hypnosis is a legitimate method for changing your mindset and beliefs on a subject.
You owe it to yourself, to be healthy, to be fit, to live life.
