Your mindset plays a big role when it comes to getting and staying fit.
In the same way that an app on your phone is limited by the functions that have been programmed into it, your body is limited by the messages sent by your mind.
If you have the goal of changing your body for the better by dropping kilos and increasing your muscle tone, the first thing to do is to begin with your mindset. It’s a step that far too many well-meaning people skip in their quest for an improved, sexier body.
My experience has led me to observe that my successful clients who experience the most amazing body transformation results are the ones that abide by the following Positive Mindset Habits…
1) Positive Mindset Habit #1: Stop Beating Yourself Up
Most of us compare where we are today with where we ultimately want to be.
If you’re overweight with the goal of one day being a at your goal weight, what runs through your mind when you look in the mirror?
With a positive mindset you would look in the mirror and notice the improvements and progress that you’ve made towards your ultimate goal, no matter how subtle.
With a negative mindset you would look in the mirror and only see the gap between what you are today and what you ultimately want to be, and you’d beat yourself up about it.
To be successful with your body transformation, focus on positive improvements and every small step towards your bigger goal.
One thing we’ve introduced into our classes to help our stars become more positive about themselves is we get them to do 5 pushups if they put themselves down (i.e. “I’m too old”, “I can’t run”, “I always get injured” etc).
On the flipside, I’ve got to do 5 pushups myself if I get all judgey about their unhealthy eating habits or lack of exercise.
Why not try yourself?
2) Positive Mindset Habit #2: Do not EVER consider what others think of You
My best clients don’t give a stuff what others think of them. They are focused on their own journey and realise that the only opinion that matters about them is their own.
This small mental shift makes a huge difference when it comes to getting results.
Maintain your focus and energy on your daily fitness goals and resist the urge to compare your progress with others. Do not attempt to decipher what others are thinking about you, because the only opinion about you that really matters is your own.
3) Positive Mindset Habit #3: ONLY Think Positive Thoughts About Yourself
Nothing good ever comes from thinking poorly of yourself. I simply can’t emphasise this point enough: Negative self-talk is one of the reasons that most attempts at weight loss or anything else for that matter fail.
However, those who make a daily practice of positive self-talk, by encouraging themselves and focusing on every small step made towards their goal, see incredible results.
Keeping a positive attitude about yourself will not only help you lose the weight, it also helps you to keep it off in the long run. You really do become and create what you think of most.
