You think hundreds of thousands thoughts each day. You talk to your self more than anyone else. You are your most trusted adviser and confidant. Many of the conversations that you have with yourself, you would never have with anyone else. In doing so you would expose the real you. The you that is filled with self-doubt, sadness, worries, hurts, and disappointments.
But this is not the real you at all. This is the you that our ego has constructed. The negative thinking that have been constructed by you, and accepted by you as truth. What is sad is that nothing can be further from the truth.
Let’s take a look and ask yourself, where did these false ideas about you originate? They mostly came from parents, teachers, people whom you work with and your friends. They might have planted the seed by saying something like “she is fat” and you have cultivated those comments to the point that they have become your truth.
You are allowing your entire life to be controlled by some obscure comments made probably many years ago. One important thing to remember, no one has the right or the power to dictate how you are. Only you know who you truly are and what’s in your heart.
When you were born, you entered this world without the burdens of your current negative belief system. You entered this world as a beautiful bundle of joy, filled with endless potential and possibilities.
The only difference now is what you give attention to. Let me ask a question. If you stopped all the negative thinking and all the negative talk that you currently have with yourself such as:
I’m too fat.
Why would anyone want to love me?
I always fail.
I will never be thin.
This list can go on forever,
How would you feel?
Do you think you would feel emotionally lighter?
Do you think you would be happier?
Do you think that you would feel more confident?
Now how do you think your life would change if you were to go one step further and change your self-talk by only speaking positively about your self and focus on only that your emotional state will become positive to the point that you will be able to accomplish anything.
Once you begin looking for the positive thing within you, you will be amazed to realize your greatness has always been there just below the surface. You have never been anything except that shining bundle of joy that entered this world years ago. It is very easy to uncover positive aspects of yourself by asking some questions.
What am I good at?
Who am I?
What is in my heart that only I know?
Who has benefited by me being in this world?
What do I like about my body?
Once you have answered those questions, your goal is to feel good now. Decide in the here and now how you want to feel. Tell yourself that you will always look for the good within you and appreciate that goodness.
You are probably asking yourself, “what does all this have to do with losing weight?” The answer is everything! Your emotional state of being is the valve that determines what you draw into your experiences. How you talk to yourself creates your beliefs, and program, your subconscious.
It is very important to ask yourself do you want your beliefs and subconscious programming to be based on false negative thinking. Or do you want your belief system to be based on the truth, that you are and always been a perfect being?
Start today and nurture yourself. Allow the joy and enthusiasm that you naturally had as a child begin to flow into your everyday experiences. And to celebrate each and every success no matter how small. Appreciate and love yourself in every opportunity you have. If you do this every day, you will see your weight begin to dissolve, just as your negative thinking will also dissolve for good.
