One of the biggest deterrents people face when they want to achieve any goal is lack of belief that they can do it. The power of belief is important, whether you’re developing a business, focusing on fitness or simply want to feel better. Belief in a doctor or medicine is half the cure and so is belief in yourself when you want to accomplish a goal. If you believe you can do it, you’re halfway there to conquering your goal.
Are you afraid to try?
One of the reasons people fail to believe in themselves is that they’re afraid of the results. Sometimes, they’re afraid they’ll fail again and failure certainly doesn’t feel good. If that’s you, think of Thomas Edison’s quotes, two of which are my favorites. “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” The only failure is lack of trying. Don’t let fear get in your way.
You need to believe that change is good if it makes you healthier.
People often sabotage themselves or people they love if they think something will change the dynamics in their life. If you’re worried what will happen if you look and feel better, change your focus to having a higher energy level. Focus on what won’t scare you or face it with the knowledge that you actually control how you feel and looking better won’t change a thing except your energy and health. Find out what stops you from believing in yourself and address it.
The power of belief can help you achieve fitness or block you.
Everyone has a belief system that guides the through life. If you’re a mom, you may think that doing something for yourself is selfish and all your free time should be devoted to your family. If that’s part of your belief system, stop right there. YOU OWE IT TO YOUR FAMILY TO BE FIT AND HEALTHY. Staying fit means you have more energy and time to devote to them. It also means you’ll be a better role model.
- Do you have family members that put you down when you tell them about your fitness program? Don’t tell them. Our apps let you change your eating habits and workout in the privacy of your home. Only you have to know.
- Are you worried that you might injure yourself because you’re so out of shape? It’s one reason we create a workout that’s personalized. Take it easier when you start and you won’t suffer from sore muscles that make you quit.
- Schedule your workout at the same time every day and make it an appointment. If you’re changing your eating habits, get rid of food that’s sabotaging your efforts and stock up on healthy snacks.
- Become the role model for your children and family. If you’re the family cook, don’t tell everyone it’s healthy, just cook and serve healthy meals. Get the kids involved when you exercise and get them in the habit of moving more.
