There was a new study released that shows women critisize themselves more than 36 times per day. There is a book by Susan Jeffries called “Feel The Fear and Do It Anyways” it talks about your “Chatterbox”. You know that little voice in your head that is extremely critical of everything you do, how you look and how you feel.
We teach our students at Peak Performance Martial Arts about how to turn this “Chatterbox” off, in fact, we are very specific, you need to tell you little voice to “SHUT UP”. Our world is so negative, the last thing we need is to be negative with ourselves.
If you are having challenges in your life that are causing you a great deal of stress, all it does is just expand. There is a little saying that goes “what ever you focus on expands”. When you focus on self-doubt, all it does is expand. If you tell yourself that you are overweight and you will never be able to get in the shape you want, guess what, you won’t. On the contrary, if you learn to focus on the positive and set clear cut defined goals, then you will be able to fit in the bathing suit or pair of jeans you have always wanted to wear.
If you are unable to do it by yourself, then find a mentor to lead you to where you want to go, surround yourself with successful people and you will become successful yourself.
Best of Luck,
