Have you ever started a diet and knew deep down that you would not be able to stick with it? Perhaps it was too calorie strict, eliminated too many of the foods that you like or just wasn’t the right diet at the right time in your life. One thing is for sure, if you have doubts about your ability to succeed with a diet that is a good indication that it will not work for you.
In order to achieve something as difficult as changing your diet, you must first believe that it is possible. You need to affirm these beliefs by making positive declarations about the success of your diet program. By repeating these affirmations you train your brain to think to shrink.
Once you harness the power of affirmations, you will wonder why you never thought to include them in your program before. Your brain is waiting on the stimuli, you just need to fill it with positive, powerful thoughts that focuses on success. You can easily do this by repeating affirmations of goal driven self-talk that will help you to take action.
Begin your day with affirmations to empower you for success. All you need is about 5 minutes of private time to repeat your affirmations. Do this every day until it becomes a habit. Drive out any negativity and put obstacles in their place. Fill your mind with positive messages of what you will do that day.
Some examples are:
I will eat only healthy foods today.
I will exercise for 5 minutes longer today.
I am stronger because I exercise.
My clothes fit me better because my body is changing.
No matter what your goal, daily affirmations can help you attain success. Every great act begins with an idea. Affirmations will help to take those ideas and start to shape them into a reality. If you believe it, you can achieve it. And that’s the hardest part of the challenge.
Your ability to believe in yourself is the key to your success. While you know for a fact that people can and do lose weight, there is self-doubt within you that says you failed before, be careful you might fail again.
Stamp out that self-doubt! Get rid of those negative thoughts! You can succeed this time. You can make it happen. But you first must believe it is possible. Think it, believe it and achieve it!
