It is only with a compelling vision that anything is accomplished in life; whether it be sending a man to the moon, inventing the automobile or finding your motivation to lose weight. It all comes down to a compelling vision.
So what compelling vision do you have for yourself?
Where do you see yourself in 6 months, 12 months, 2 years, 5 years, or even 10 years from now?
Do you still want to be where you are right now? Or do you want more out of life?
If you want more out of life and you believe your weight is holding you back believe me when I say this: Your lack of a compelling vision of where you want to be is the only thing stopping you getting what you want in life.
No-one can stop you reaching your goals except you. Only you have the power to stop you.
If you want to turn your life around, start by visualizing the life you want to be leading.
I have a little notebook that holds all of my visualizations. They’re all stated in the present tense as if they are already present in my life, and they are all stated in the positive.
Do you have your visualizations written down yet? Do you re-write them every day to keep them alive?
You must. And the reason you must is so very simple. When you write your visualizations in the present tense you give them energy. And this energy goes out into the Universe and the Universe rearranges itself to make your visualizations real.
Let me give you an example of how this works.
Do you know anyone who is always totally miserable, and moans and groans about everything? Nothing pleases these people. Have you noticed how they always seem to attract rotten luck? They can never find a park, they’re always getting over-taxed and if a bird is going to poop on anyone’s head it has to be theirs!
That’s because the Universe is giving them exactly what they’re focussing on. If they’re focussing on everything being awful, then a whole lot of awful is what they’re going to keep getting. Its called the Law of Attraction.
And have you noticed how Little Miss Sunshine who walks around all day with a bounce in her step and believes the world is a beautiful and bountiful place always seems to experience the best luck ever? She always lands the job she wants, she always gets the guy she wants, and her souffles never flop! Again, that’s the Law of Attraction. The Universe is giving her exactly what she’s focussing on.
So why should it be any different with getting in the best shape of your life?
If you have a compelling vision of how you want to be, and you keep focussing on that daily, then why would the Law of Attraction not apply to you too?
If you’ve been following my blog posts I wrote a ridiculous one earlier on about how one of my motivations to lose weight was to look like Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. I seriously thought it was quite ridiculous, however, that’s what I wanted. If you want to read that post, click here.
So I wrote it in my Affirmations Notebook, I stuck a picture of her on my fridge, and I loaded another one of her as my screen saver. She’s around me all day long.
Well, here’s the crazy thing. I’m not even half way through my 90 day challenge and my stomach is starting to look like Lara Croft’s. I can see the abs forming. And my arms are starting to get ripped.
Now I’ll be the first to admit, I still have a long way to go before I look anything like my idol on the fridge. However, the fact that I can even see a hint of what I’ve been focussing on excites me to push a little harder, go a little longer, jump a little higher.
The Universe is giving me what I am putting energy into. That’s how the Law of Attraction works. Whatever it is that you want, just focus on it with all your heart and soul, with pure intentions and it will manifest in your life.
So find your motivation to lose weight, and create a compelling vision of how your life is by having achieved your goal.
