Self-Empowerment - Painting Your Positive Mental Self

in Working

Let's get organized first. Begin by writing down what you perceive as your fitness problems and body challenges. Think of it as a personal contract that your life may very well depend on as you work towards that healthy and fit mind and body. Please do not skip this important initial step in our strategy. Just thinking about "it" is not nearly enough because our thoughts tend to run in circles. But by putting it in writing or sharing it with someone creates a sense of personal responsibility towards your goals. Thoughts are powerful but action creates results! We will focus on motivation a little later.

You truly want to succeed at this and so you begin by envisioning yourself, an image that makes you feel good both in the inside and outside. This method of visualization often gets a negative reputation like it is some kind of weird science. It isn't! What I'm talking about is mental imagery, positive thinking in your fitness recovery undertaking. You don't need elaborate equipment or technique for this mental exercise you just need to concentrate. It really takes work to make it effective. Let me help in the process by giving you a psychological, emotional and conscious target. It is up to you to make it work towards your own personal fitness achievement.

First of all, know that there will be challenges. We may zigzag to get there with our actions but if you are prepared, visualization will work Exercise Your Mind: Notice when and where you use the word "want." Pay attention to the actual things and events that are connected with this word. Let go of using the word "want." Several times a day just focus on your heart's desire. See yourself and "it" in the picture, experience having and interacting with the image, and feel gratitude. Once a day, spend a longer period of time, three to five minutes resonating with the whole experience, and send this energy out into the universe to pull and help push you. It's internal motivation, the motivation that is long lasting when practiced regularly.

Most importantly, you get immediate and continuous results, and spins off to other areas of your life. Most who have used positive personal imagery become happier, more assertive in their life's purpose and are more confident people as well as leaner people. And they stay that way.
