Last week I discussed the root issue of not meeting your health and fitness goals due to having a negative mentality. This week, I am going to discuss the root issue of discomfort.
Here’s the thing, being unhealthy and overweight does not happen overnight. It is typically a long process of developing unhealthy habits and routines that we become comfortable and familiar with. When we start dieting and increasing our exercise, we rock this comfort boat we’ve been sitting in for far too long.
Let’s discuss the root issue of having a negative mentality. You have probably told yourself at least once that you need to be positive, stay positive, think positively or, even more likely, these words have passed your lips to be directed at someone else. Having a positive attitude has become an extremely popular phrase and key ingredient to success shared in the majority of if not every, self-help book. Knowing that we need to be positive is one thing, accomplishing it daily is another.
We have a tendency to be very positive on the outside yet very negative internally. I wonder if you put yourself down today, called yourself stupid / fat / ugly, or told yourself you couldn’t do something. If you desire to change, want more for yourself, or are looking to be more successful, you have to change your mentality first.
