Who do you think you are?
What makes you act like you? Your Self-Image. Self image is like a thermostat. It keeps you within your comfortable zone. If you are below your temp, Self-Image makes you uncomfortable and turns up your power until you are within the right temperature. Likewise, if you are above your temperature, the Self-Image will cut your power, dropping you back within your zone. As long as you “act like you,” the Self-Image is satisfied and does not rock the boat. To change your performance, you must change your Self-Image and elevate your comfort zone.
Controlling that change in your Self-Image may be the most important skill you will ever learn. You can change any attitude you do not like. When the Self-Image changes, performance
At the end of the day, we’ll pretty much do what we think we’re capable of doing.
What's the saying: “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” Who said that anyway?
That’s good news right?or I guess it could be potentially bad news too. hmmm
Is your Self-Image is low?if so, chances are, so will your performance be. Nothing from nothing leaves nothing. That's the bad news.
Ready for the good news? You can change your Self-Image and, if you’re committed to elevating your performance, whether it's how you plan a meal, how often you exercise and to what level, you must change your Self-Image.
How you ask? You change it through imprinting.
Self-Image is created over years and years of imprints that come from real experiences and imaginary ones. Your thoughts, feelings, perceptions - yeah, all that. The good and the bad. Good. Bad. Good. Bad. Bad. Good. Bad. Bad. Bad. Good. Good. All imprints.
So where does that lead us? We must reshape our thinking. If you are overweight, it is likely that the cause is repetitive overeating. Repetitive change of your eating habits is the best way to bring your weight down safely. Rethinking and reshaping your mind about your relationship with food and with others and yes, even (especially) yourself.
If you have a poor attitude, it is likely that the cause is repetitive negative reinforcement. Repetitive change of your thinking habits is the best way to bring about a changed attitude.
If we want to re-wire our Self-Image, we need to quit reinforcing the bad and lean into the good. Stop right now talking about things you don’t want to see in your life, and start celebrating the good stuff!
Remember, your Self-Image is the CURRENT state of YOU. It is not the FINAL state. Be aware that you self-image is evolving in the direction of your imprinting... Nothing is going to change unless you change.
Here’s to your health to each and everyone of you! Let us retrain, rethink and reshape our minds so that the beauty and strength of our new self-image shines through and our greatest gifts and our greatest service is manifested to the world!
