How often do you find yourself focused on the things you do not do well? Are you beating yourself up for not making it to the gym on a consistent basis? Are you disappointed that you had that cheat meal? Such negative thoughts will influence our future decisions.
Why not focus on what we are doing right, NOT the things we have to change? Yes, you struggle to get to the gym 5 times per week but going 2-3 times per week for an entire year adds up! Maybe you had that cheat meal, but the rest of your meals are where we want them to be. Focusing on the positive does not drain you emotionally, it pulls you out of a rut and gives you hope.
A triangle is only as tall as its base is wide, and our potential is only as great as our mental strength allows. We certainly want to address the areas where we need improvement, but only after we have the correct reference point. So let’s build on what we do well and leave the negativity behind.
“The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.” – Winston Churchill
