-A holiday inspired note to my fitness friends-
It’s quite obvious that most of what we do in this life is mental. The secret to success and happiness is visualizing what you want and going after it full steam ahead.
The theory is that everything we do is 80% mental and 20% physical. This means we have to train our brain to perform and our body will follow suit.
Ever notice that if you want something bad enough, you get it?
Ever met a thin person who claims they can eat whatever they want and not gain weight?
Ever known a person who is constantly trying new things and seems to always be successful at them?
It’s a mindset.
Changing the way you think changes the way you live. Putting positivity and gratitude into the world will allow you to receive it back.
Live with a grateful heart and dream your goals into reality.
For those of us who push through long work days, tough workouts, have families, have time-consuming hobbies, or are just constantly running around- our souls need a reward.
Around the holiday’s stress starts to pile up, food intake increases rapidly, and a lot of the time we start to feel pretty bad about ourselves.
Find excitement in shopping for others. Give back to those who may be in need. And for heaven’s sake, eat those cookies you’ve been staring at all day!
Most find in their journey to a healthier life that they can put in work, keep their nutrition on point, and still cheat without consequence as long as they stay in the correct frame of mind.
Because they believe they can. They know it won’t hinder their goals. They are convinced they will bounce back. They know how well they eat, how hard they push in the gym, and how much they deserve to feed their soul.
Try this in your daily life. Turn a negative mindset into a positive one and watch your life flourish. Take charge of your destiny. Dream big. And never, ever, give up on the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
