The body achieves what the mind believes. A powerful and true statement. Did you know your mind can create physical reactions and changes in your body? Your mindset sets the tone for your day and impacts your emotions.
What you tell yourself about yourself truly makes a difference in your life.
A simple way to think about this is by asking yourself if you are you saying more positive or negative things to yourself throughout the day. If you notice yourself saying negative things more often than positive ones, it can be a big contributor to your mood and your overall health and wellbeing.
Sometimes we can be overly critical about ourselves, whether its our intelligence, appearance, success, or lifestyle. Have you ever put yourself down and then realized if you actually took a step back and look at how far you've come, you should actually be proud? It's interesting how seemingly a small change of perspective can make a big difference!
By creating a space of love, appreciation, gratitude and joy we are able to more fully enjoy life and also make room for more of what we want to come into our lives.
It can be helpful to start writing down 3 things you are grateful for every morning.
I love the quote "The Body Achieves What the Mind Believes" by Napoleon Hill because the body listens to our thoughts!
If you are able to start the day with gratitude and love for all of the things that you appreciate and bring that loving energy into your day, your day will go more smoothly.
On the flip side, if we only tell ourselves we are heavy, will never change, and we will always be stressed, then we will stay stuck there! Our body listens to what we tell it.
I encourage you to focus on what you DO want so that you bring more of what you do want into your life.
Do you want to feel lighter? Think of yourself as light. Visualize it. Picture it. Imagine yourself feeling as you want to feel. Do you want that job or promotion? See it as already happening. Feel the feelings and allow yourself to get excited!
I have found that journaling brings me into this place of visualization and creating what I do want to happen. Here's my favorite journal below.
As you write your thoughts, you may begin to notice that some of these thoughts are feelings rather than reality. Being intentional and taking a good hard look at these thoughts can offer some insight into whether limiting beliefs are holding you back from achieving your goals and dreams.
Are there any things that you have visualized that came to fruition? Comment below!
