Your mindset plays a big role when it comes to getting, and staying fit.
In the same way that an app on your phone is limited by the functions that have been programmed into it, your body is limited by the messages sent by your mind.
If you have the goal of changing your body for the better by dropping fat and increasing lean muscle, the first thing to do is to begin with your mindset. It’s a vital step in your quest for a strong, healthy and sexier body.
My experience has led me to observe that my successful clients abide by the following Positive Mindset Habits…
STOP BEATING YOURSELF UP
Most of us compare where we are today with where we ultimately want to be.
With a positive mindset you would look in the mirror and notice the improvements and progress that you’ve made towards your ultimate goal, NO MATTER HOW SUBTLE.
With a negative mindset you would look in the mirror and only see the gap between what you are today and what you ultimately want to be, and you’d beat yourself up about it.
To be successful with your goals, focus on positive improvements and every small step towards your bigger goal.
DO NOT EVER CONSIDER WHAT OTHERS THINK OF YOU
My best clients don’t care what others think of them. They are focused on their own journey and realize that the only opinion that matters about them is their own.
This small mental shift will help you maintain your focus and energy on your daily fitness goals, and you will resist the urge to compare your progress with others. Do not focus on what others are thinking about you.
The only opinion about you that matters is your own.
ONLY THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS ABOUT YOURSELF
Nothing good ever comes from thinking poorly of yourself. I simply can’t emphasize this point enough: Negative self-talk is one of the reasons that most attempts at weight loss fail.
Alternately, those who practice positive self-talk, by encouraging themselves with every small step made towards their goal, see incredible results.
Keeping a positive attitude about yourself helps you to get, and stay fit in the long run.
