Is it true that what you think about all day long is what you will become?
Do you think that if you visualize yourself as someone with a fit, trim body, and as someone who loves to eat fresh fruits and vegetables and minimal processed food, that you can truly become this person? The answer is yes, to both!
Whatever you focus your mind on the majority of the time is what you will create.
If you tend to focus on your overweight, or your love of fast and processed food, or your intense dislike of physical exercise, then you will create more of the same in your life. On the other hand, when you focus on the person who you wish to become, and the traits that such a person would hold, then this is what you will become.
Your mind is one place that you and only you have complete control. You can choose to exercise that control and focus on what you do want in your life, rather than what you do not want. A simple way to get started is to write down 1 – 5 outcomes that you wish to achieve in your life.
Assuming that one outcome is weight loss, then write down all of the benefits that you see yourself receiving from losing weight; the good feelings that you imagine you will have from losing weight, and the traits that you believe a fit person possesses.
The benefits, good feelings, and traits of a fit person are all things that you can focus your thoughts on. The more often that you do so, the easier it will be for you to take action and become that fit, trim person that you want to become.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by retraining your mind how to think. At the very least, you will be thinking more positively and will feel better about life. Try it out yourself, and see where you get!
You Are What You Think

What you impress upon your mind, you’ll inevitably become.
It’s a psychological law that whatever you desire to accomplish
you must first impress upon your subconscious mind.
Your inner thoughts can cause you to be rich or poor,
loved or unloved, happy or unhappy,
attractive or unattractive, powerful or weak.
Relentless, repetitive self talk will change your self image.
You’ll affect your subconscious mind with verbal repetition.
Constant repetition carries conviction.
When you change your values you’ll change your behavior.
Start thinking of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.
Self suggestion will make you the master of yourself.
You can become whatever you want to be.
If you believe you can, you can.
