Beliefs are the commanders of our mind; they influence our feelings and actions. We are what we believe we are, and we do what we believe we can do. So, if you believe you can, you will. If you believe you can't, then you won't. In other words, if we believe something is true we literally go in the state of its being true. Beliefs are the most powerful forces for creating the state of ourselves.
If you read my earlier blog “Mind Your Way to Successful Weight Management,” then you know I believe the the power of positive thinking in achieving your goals. However, you cannot just wish or desire to be healthy and fit and have it happen. You must to create your vision of yourself and see yourself in your mind's eye as healthy and fit.
BUT, you still need to take it to the next level. You have to Believe You Can and Believe You Will achieve your vison of yourself as healthy and fit. This takes awareness of your thoughts, feelings and actions. It takes self-assessment and it takes a consious effort to change your beliefs about yourself and your ability to change thoughts and behavior patterns. You can do this by identifying negative, unproductive thoughts and changing them to positive, productive thoughts and repeating and practicing them over and over again. This takes commitment and practice. The investment is worth a lifetime of the joy of living in your vision of being healthy and fit.
