Three important elements for a healthier life are VERY simple.
Breaking It Down
: the attitude that you have towards your life – it’s the way that you react to situations, and to people, based on the assumptions and the beliefs that you have learned
: the beliefs that you live your personal life by – your beliefs will make you react the way that you do and cause your expectations to remain within a certain way of thinking
: the behavior that you have towards yourself and towards others – it is how you implement the attitudes that you have adopted towards situations and people
When you positively change your attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors you open the door to a whole new world of possibilities and views.
Better health is going to depend on your ability to change and be willing to learn new ways of thinking and doing things.
One of the techniques that you can adopt to change your behavior is to model your personal beliefs on someone whom you admire and respect. When you find someone who is healthy and successful in a way that you define health and success take a look at what they are doing and how they are doing it. Then take notes.
Also, evaluate who you are hanging out with. If you find that you’re spending time with unhealthy, negative people you need to rethink the company you keep. This doesn’t mean that you have to necessarily leave those people alone in your life. It just means that you need to start surrounding yourself more with positive, healthy people and surround yourself less with the unhealthy, negative people.
So what’s holding you back?
You need to find out what it is that is holding you back from flourishing in your personal life. This means that you have to work with your belief system:
- Identify beliefs. You’re only as successful and productive as your most positive beliefs. Be willing to make changes.
- Limiting beliefs. The more you limit your beliefs the less likely you are to succeed in life. Limiting your beliefs is only placing a limit on your success. You need to expand your beliefs so that you can find the winning attitude that will help you achieve the health and happiness that you want. The one that you deserve. Get rid of the beliefs that are limiting you from reaching your goal of personal health.
- Empowering beliefs. Stick with the beliefs that will empower, motivate, and encourage you.
- Changing beliefs. Changing your beliefs takes time and a change in your overall attitude. Heck, half the battle is knowing you need to make changes. The other half is taking the steps to make those changes.
Getting out of your own way
You can take control of the way that you think and the way that you behave. This means that you have to change the way that you “talk” to yourself as well as change the tone in which you say things to yourself. We all have a way in which we mentally talk to ourselves. You have the ability to change any negative talk to self-talk that is positive and supporting. It all comes back to that inner confidence and knowing that you can achieve your goals by making positive changes.
Only you can change the way that you look at things. Changing your physiology is in your power. When you believe in yourself there are no limits and all your goals are in your reach. The way you think is all based on your attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.
Take the time to access your attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors so that you can determine what you need to alter, discard, or replace so that you can move forward in your personal life and achieve the health that you want.
Believing in yourself
It’s easier said than done sometimes, but one of the most important things that you can do is “believe in yourself and who you are.” When you have the inner confidence that tells you that what you’re doing is the right thing you can reach ANY goals that you set for yourself. When you believe in yourself you’ll see your health start to improve.
When you believe in yourself you can accomplish not only the achievements that you’ve already defined for yourself, you can achieve those as yet unrecognized goals. When you have a strong personal belief system you’ll approach every area of your life with confidence and assurance. You’ll instinctively be able to deal with any situation that comes along in both your personal and your professional life. In relation to your health this means that you’ll be able approach your life with the self-reliance that says you know what you’re doing and that you like yourself.
