Free Your Mind — And Results Will Follow

I talk to people all the time who want to get in better shape, lose weight, or embrace a healthier lifestyle, want to do a triathlon, or get faster at racing.

And it’s amazing how often they follow up their desire with a list of reasons why they can’t possibly succeed.

  • “I’m just big boned, so there’s nothing I can do.”
  • “I was terrible in gym class, so I know I’d just fail again.”
  • “Everyone in my family is heavy, so I just have to accept myself like this.”
  • I’m so slow, I’ll never be able to get fast”
  • I’m too old, it’s too late”

It goes on and on, and it’s natural, to a degree. BUT IT DRIVES ME CRAZY! Because I know what nonsense it is.

These are all examples of self-limiting beliefs that too many of us have.

They hold us back and keep us stuck. And the only way to break through is to investigate these beliefs, ask where they came from, and then see how you can challenge them.

Ask yourself “Is it really true?”

Do what you want to do, not what these lies keep telling you about yourself.

One example: Let’s say that your parents and siblings really are overweight. That means nothing about you. Maybe they also overeat and never exercise. Maybe they don’t want to change their lives.

But if you do, you’ve got to identify the chains around your brain, take them apart, and embrace the reality that you got this!

You really do.

And if you know you can’t do it on your own, I’m here to help. Hit reply and let me know what’s coming up for you.
