Your thoughts will shape YOU
Too many of us focus on the negative things we want to change:
"I'm fed up of being overweight!"
"I hate my bingo wings!"
"I'm sick of always feeling tired!"
"Why can't I get a flat stomach?!"
"I wish I didn't have to diet!"
And so it goes on....
Negativity breeds more negativity. The more you think about the bad things you want to change, the more they envelop your mind and take over, leaving you feeling depressed, dejected and downright fed up!
Instead you need to think with positivity. Grind negativity into the ground and kick it where it hurts! Let positive energy fill your body. Turn that frown upside down and give it a lift in the right direction - SMILE.
Tell yourself that you'll only focus on the GOOD, not the BAD. Turn those negative thoughts around. Act and think as if you already have what you want.
"I have an amazing flat tummy that looks great in a bikini!"
"My legs look great in my 'skinny jeans'!"
"I love how my shoulders look in my new strapless dress!"
"I feel great! I look great! I am great!"
As you say those positive phrases to yourself in your head right now they should lift you and make you smile.
Chances are, the negative thoughts are still in control, and you're frowning to yourself, telling yourself that you DON'T have that fab tummy, you DON'T have great legs, you DON'T have shoulders to die for....
STOP! Try again. Visualise yourself with the results YOU want. Not the results you "wish you could have if only..."
Visualise the results you WANT and the results you WILL HAVE. Forget everything else.
If you aren't happy with your body, believe whole-heartedly that were you are now is simply a place designed for you to see how much improvement you can bring with focus and positive energy.
Picture YOU in your ideal body - it doesn't have to be catwalk-thin or glam. Your body is feminine, in your eyes you look great - doesn't matter what others think, comparing you to the 'ideal'. They know NOTHING about your body. Let them worry about their own.
The more you can picture how you WANT to look, the more you will find the WAY to make it happen. Just like deciding you want a new car or a new house, if you want it with a PASSION, you will find a way to get the money together, to sell your old car/house. NOTHING will stand in the way of your DREAM and your GOAL.
SERIOUSLY - write down how you want to look and feel - NO JOKE.
Write it down and read it daily. Know, feel, sense and see how you want to be.
With such positive thought and concentration YOU will achieve your goals and look GREAT!
