BLOG OF THE MONTH: CAROLYN HOOPER
When I look back to the way I used to live my life, I am grateful everyday that I decided to get into fitness. Sure living fit has changed my body, but a change in my mind is where needed the most help.
I always receive comments from people saying they wish they had half the will power, determination and dedication that I have. This amuses me because I used to not be able to make myself do anything. Everyone makes excuses, it is a natural human tendency. I STILL run through the list of why I should not do something - like "I'm too tired", "I'll just work extra hard tomorrow", "Eating this won't effect me that much", etc! Now I just choose to overrule these thoughts - and you can too!
Your mind is a wild animal unless you learn to control your thoughts. Your mind can take you as far as you want to go in life or you can decided to limit your existence and waste all of your potential. You choose.
In my past I had suffered major substance abuse. I would do anything to drown out the war going on between my ears. I did not like the person I pretended to be, and it manifested in the way I looked at myself in the mirror. So I did something about it!
To transform yourself inside and out is painful. Straight up. But the pain of change is only temporary, where the pain of staying where you are, drowning in unhappiness, lasts a lifetime.
If you do not have something in life that you are working towards, you're dead! Everyone has a dream. You may have forgotten about it or considered it impossible. I have proof that if you decide to go after something with everything you've got, envisioning success in every moment, regardless of what you see or feel in the natural - you can achieve anything!
You can't just snap your fingers and change your way of thinking, you need to start small and practise on little things. In the moment that you have the opportunity to either decide to do something that brings you closer to your goal or to decide to make 10,000 excuses why you should avoid the choice that you know you should make, tell yourself to shut up and win that moment. As you increase the moments that you win as apposed to giving in, eventually you will wake up a different person.
I challenge you to first become aware of how you are thinking, then become aware of the dumb excuses you are making in your head, then practise overruling them.
I believe in you!
