What happens to some people who wins millions of dollars on lottery? They eventually end up losing it all, and sometimes find themselves more broke than before, knee deep in debt. Why is that happening? They haven’t developed the right mindset – the mindset of a rich and wealthy person. A businessman or entrepreneur that has earned a lot of money has developed the right mindset by becoming someone else, and therefore he/she can handle being rich and having lots of money.
In the same way you have to develop a mindset and a philosophy about your relationship to food, about what to eat, what not to eat, moderation, self control, awareness, learning, exercise, your attitude towards yourself and the world around you. This includes a process where you have to work with yourself to get from the state you’re in, to a state where you wanna be. A state in which you feel good.
What you want regarding your weight is not actually a lighter body. That is relative. Compared to a rhino you are really light, don’t you think? What you really want is a change of state. You want a change in how you feel.
You want to feel good
Your ultimate goal of weight loss is foremost to change how you feel about yourself. You want to feel powerful, attractive, healthy, full of energy, vibrant and alive! You want to be able to live your life to the max. To be able to do that, you have to work with yourself. For something to change, you have to change. It doesn’t matter if it comes to wealth, health, relationships or weight. First of all you have to get the foundation of your weight transformation cemented. You must now WHY you have to lose weight! Otherwise you will not be able to continue when the going gets tough, and you will slip right back to your old patterns. Maybe that’s why you failed the last time you tried to lose weight, you didn’t really know why you had to lose weight, you just saw that you had become fat and was shocked by the truth. The foundation of all success is to have a written goal and a powerful why.This is where the most people fail.
Right now you may be tired, totally lacking in energy, disappointed with your self, all puffed-up and you are feeling unattractive. That is means a lot of pain to you.
Everything we humans do is either to gain pleasure or avoid pain. The way you are today, the amount of weight you have gained and the physical and mental condition you are in right now, is caused by the things you have done either to avoid pain or gain pleasure, either consciously or unconsciously. Contemplate this and you will find it very true.
