The Tips You-Can-Use Series to make lasting change and dominate your life in 2018!
At this time of year, people are setting resolutions, talking about “quitting this” and “stopping that” with thoughts of “I can’t have” and “I shouldn’t”.
No wonder 80% of resolutions drop off by February with only 8% of people achieving what they set out to do! That’s a horrible approach to getting what you want.
You cannot grow by playing small.
New Year Tip: Focus on what you can ADD.
Presenting a goal to your mind in the form of quitting, losing or stopping, can’t, don’t or shouldn’t – makes you want whatever you’re trying to avoid even more. It also limits you and creates resistance and restriction. YUCK!
Human nature is to want more, be more – to expand! (not live smaller)
Example – approaching weight loss by telling yourself “I shouldn’t eat so much” or “I can’t have a cookie” creates a feeling of limitation and keeps your mind focused on what you can’t have or shouldn’t do.
Not very inspiring or empowering.
So instead of trying to quit or stop something, focus on healthy things you can add to your life.
“What do you like and enjoy, that’s good for you” – that you can add starting right now?
Write a list of all the healthy foods you love to eat, activity or movement you love to do – or whatever goes with your desired outcome. (Money, time, family and so on)
Focus on what you “can have” and “can do” and fill your day with those actions and focus points.
“I can eat more veggies”
“I can add more movement today”
“I can plan my meals for healthy eating”
Your day will be filled with thoughts of all the things you CAN do and CAN have!
Never underestimate the power of thoughts and how you position your mind.
Thoughts create a feeling.
A negative thought creates a negative feeling = You feel small, powerless, stuck.
A positive thought creates a positive feeling = You feel strong, powerful, possible.
With the right focus and approach, you will expand your power for success in 2018!
What can you ADD that you like and enjoy – that’s good for you? Drop it below!
Happy New Year with all the bells and whistles and everything you want for your life!
