Self Belief and Goal Setting
Positive thinking evokes more energy, more initiative, more happiness.
It is said that whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right. Why is it so important to understand this when trying to achieve your goals??
Put simply, everything that you believe is what happens to you. If you believe you can’t achieve something, you’ll find reasons why you can’t. If you believe you can achieve something, you’ll find things that reassure you that you can.
Believing you can’t do something is negative, and believing you can is positive. Positive beliefs bring positive energy, people, feelings and reassurance. It gives you the focus and determination to keep going.
So, if you find yourself struggling to start, or remain consistent on your fitness journey (or any other goal you’ve set for yourself), then look inside yourself and see what you truly believe deep down. Do you believe you can achieve it? Or does it feel like the goal you’ve set is too far out of reach? If so, then your goal setting is the first thing you need to work on.
Maybe your goal is so big in the beginning that you can’t imagine yourself reaching it, so you need to break it down into smaller, achievable pieces in order to bring about the natural belief that you can get there. You want your goal to inspire you, but not overwhelm you.
If you believe something is impossible, you will make it impossible. So it’s really quite simple, if deep down you know you can achieve something, then you definitely will
