Do you want to know how to lose weight and keep it off? The best way to start is to ask yourself where your focus lies! What do you focus on as you go about your day. Do you spend your time thinking about the things you want and desire or do you spend more time thinking about what you don’t want?
If there is any area of your life where you have a problem you probably, like most people, spend quite some time talking about what you don’t want or what you don’t like about the thing that is causing you pain.
If you are like most people you may say, “I don’t want to be fat,” or “I want to stop eating chocolate,” or “I want my wife/husband to stop being critical.” The majority of people spend their lives talking about those things they definitely don’t want and yet…
One of the most basic psychological rules in life is, ‘you always get more of what you focus on.’ In each one of the examples above, your mind has to focus on what you don’t want in order to make sense of what you said – the fat body you don’t want, the chocolate you want to stop eating and the critical partner who upsets you.
Because the subconscious part of your mind is both naive and primitive in it’s understanding it believes that the fat, the chocolate and the criticism is what you want. Talking about what you don’t want reinforces the image you have of yourself as a fat, out of control, chocoholic and seeing yourself in this way leaves you feeling helpless, hopeless and unmotivated.
