This week I’m writing to you about a topic that might seem a tad bit “woo woo” but can truly have an impact on your headspace regarding fitness and your tangible results.
Have you ever heard of affirmational deficiency?
You have likely heard of affirmations and in particular positive ones.
ie: I’m whole perfect harmonious and happy.
I am a loving kind present friend.
But did you know that we can affirm our present situation and continue to create more of it if we are not careful about how we view it.
For example, if I am focusing all my energy on the 10 lbs I want to lose, I might continue to create a situation where I’ve got 10 lbs to lose.
If I’m thinking a lot about how I wish I had more energy rather than focusing on the energy I do have then I am going to continue to be aware of the lack of what I have vs the what of what I do have.
I hope this makes sense.
When we want more of a thing (ANY Thing) the first step is to place focus on how much of it we already have.
Now this can be easier said than done when we are in a bad way…if my whole body aches and I’m exhausted it is easy for someone else to tell me “just focus on what feels good”. I mean guess what jerk, nothing feels good…right? But there is always something positive we can find.
As you are going forward with your fitness and health journey find EVERY win (it doesn’t matter how small) and celebrate the heck out if it. Ring that bell. Brag it up. Tell us about the thing you are proud about accomplishing. Find every reason to be grateful for all that is going well.
You’ll notice that more and more things will be moving in the direction you want…
