Today I want to put all of our food and exercise knowledge aside and talk about the one thing most people forget about when they are on their fitness journey. That thing is your MIND. My mind?! You mean we aren’t going to talk about food or work-outs on a diet and fitness blog? Not today. And that is because your mind is the third and final component needed to maintain a healthy, fit and energetic life style.
I want you to think of the thirty minutes of your day you spend BEFORE your work out. How do you spend those thirty minutes? Are you driving from work to the gym? Are you relaxing at home in anticipation of having to work out? What do you spend your time doing thirty minutes before you enter your gym. Chances are your doing something that doesn’t take much energy. Now I want you to take those thirty minutes and apply your mind. We as humans literally have the power to re-wire our brain chemistry. When we start thinking positive we attract positive out comes. This is because of The Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction in a nut-shell is when positive potential becomes noticed when a conscious effort is being made on an imagined out come. This causes our vision’s to become energy, which is then attracted and manifested into your reality by anticipating the positive to manifest. If you believe, your energy matches the frequency of your vision and it becomes your reality. In other words, a conscious being creates his or her own reality by always focusing on something in a positive manner and allowing it to occur. If you do not expect it, it will not occur, and if you anticipate the failure than you will fail. It’s simple.
So every day when you have the thirty minutes before your work out, I want you to visualize yourself as your best, strongest, most fit you. How do you want to transform your body? Do you want to be able to run four miles with out stopping? Do you want to loose 20 pounds? Do you want to be able to do 30 push-ups by a certain date? VISUALIZE. Picture yourself as you wish to be. All while your visualizing this say to yourself out loud positive affirmations. Things like: “I am happy, healthy and strong. Each day, my body improves. I feel light, I feel quick, I feel energized.” Anything that is positive, say. But you must truly believe your goal is achievable. While you say these things and visualize yourself, you must also feel the positivity inside. You have to feel it and believe it or it won’t work. If you let the fear and negative thoughts creep in then you will only attract more fear and failure. Think of the feeling you will have when your happy with your body. After all, your an actor, you should be able to produce this feeling and hold onto it while you execute your positive affirmations.
Now you may think this is all “hokus-pokus” but what do you have to loose? Try it. Try this in all aspects of your life not just your journey on fitness. Try it with your career. “I am a talented actor. I am getting auditions. I am booking auditions. I am making money. I am successful.” Do this everyday and watch how you start to attract more positive situations and people in your life.
THINK POSITIVE. ACT POSITIVE. BE POSITIVE.
