The Power of Your Thoughts

The Power of Your Thoughts

Why is it that so many people exercise and diet year after year but remain overweight and lacking in muscle definition? They go through the motions, thinking that health and strength and fitness success is merely the combination of the right exercises and the right foods. Although that is definitely part of the route to success, the truth is that you cannot get the results you want, much less stick with the right exercises and nutrition program, unless you begin with the goal clearly defined in your mind.

The whole key to making miracles happen in your life, whether in your fitness or your career or your marriage, begins the exact same way—with your intention. This is the power within you that makes any of it work. First, you establish order through mentally picturing what it is that you want to achieve. Then you add power, life, vitality, radiance, and passion to the mental image by breathing life into it.

We become what we think about with deep, vivid emotion. To merely think a thought does not give it transformative power. But to think a thought backed by an abundance of passion, enthusiasm, and positive, life-affirming emotion puts it into the realm of the extraordinary. And when that happens, it’s “look out world,” because here you come.

This is the way of the transformed life. You, and you alone, determine what you want in life—and you alone, with faith, courage, and perseverance, will make up your mind that nothing will prevent you from reaching your goal. You’re going to get it! And you’re going to win. Guaranteed.

Resolve to stop thinking negative thoughts such as “I can’t—there’s too much for me to overcome.” Start saying “I can! I will! Nobody will stop me!” Each day is a new day and a new start, so make yours happen positively.

Refocus your life priorities and make fitness a dynamic part of it. Then put your heart and soul into your workouts and you can achieve goals that are beyond your wildest dreams. Without it, you can achieve very little.
