Limiting Mindset #10
“I’m afraid I may fail.”
One of the questions on our new client paperwork is this:
What would prevent you from starting our program today?
Obviously, there could be many answers to this. Yet, one of the most common responses we see is:
“Fear of failing – again.”
The first thing we can say about this is that we understand. It’s a very common fear or apprehension in MANY areas of life … and certainly when it comes to weight loss! But, here’s what we have to say about this very prevalent LIMITING MINDSET …Read More
“It TAKES TOO LONG to lose it!”
There is NO DOUBT about the fact that this is a limiting thought for many.
We are NO DOUBT a quick fix society.
Yet, so often we hear that slow, progressive weight loss is always best. This automatically LIMITS many people. They simply opt to not start – especially when a person is already in that “Too much to lose” limiting mindset #6. But, you need to THINK OUT OF THE BOX HERE TOO!
Let us share a fact here: It is really NOT always the case that it’s going to take a LOOOOONNNGGG time to reach your fat loss goals. Those who think out of the box may actually find that there IS a way to safely and effectively lose weight rather quickly.Read More
“I Will Do This PRIVATELY On My Own.”
There is absolutely NO doubt about it: the challenge and frustration of struggling with your overweight is VERY personal. Because of that, many people like to make the fixing of it personal as well. If they can figure it out and succeed, that’s great!
But let’s admit it: it is difficult to lose weight on your own! It almost comes back again to the whole toleration thing we wrote about earlier. Sometimes, besides providing helpful direction and counseling, other people who are concerned about your health and who are focused on coaching people to lose weight and overcome their weight challenge do not tolerate us getting off course as much as we may allow ourselves to do!Read More
“It’s Uncomfortable to Change.”
We are continuing our series on LIMITED or unhealthy thinking when it comes to fat loss. We covered several weeks ago this truth:
Many people’s biggest challenge to changing their waist line lies right between their ears!
It is our belief that by sharing these limitations of thought, it may help you do what 1000’s of others before you have done: Expand YOUR thinking about weight loss! Eliminate These Limiting Mind Sets and SUCCEED in YOUR Fat Loss Journey! It does not matter HOW you have thought about that possibility up till now. It only matters how you think and what you do moving forward! So, let’s continue on …
This Limiting Mindset goes right along with the last one we discussed! Many people struggling with their weight or with their health overall tend to want to say: It’s uncomfortable to change.
But, hold on! It’s uncomfortable to stay the same, too! Isn’t it?Read More
“I have too much to lose”
This is perhaps THE biggest LIMITING THOUGHT that prevents significant weight loss. This thought process is almost as bad as saying something like “I’m just a lost cause” …. “I’m too far gone … “It’s hopeless”. Well, we are here to tell you: It is NOT hopeless!
