  • Beating ourselves up never actually gets the results we want yet we do it automatically. 
Become aware of your thoughts and words.  See if you can see the direct link between your thoughts and the kind of life you live. 
Is giving yourself a hard time working for you?

  • You give up because it's too hard. 
But it's only hard because you are new to it.. just like anything else you learn. 
Everything you learn is difficult to begin with.  It's just now you might be older, you may have less support, your old habits may be a struggle to let go of.  The urge to keep doing what you've always done may be super  hard to resist.  You may lose friends transforming into the new you.  Ones that don't resemble the kind of person you want to become.
There's a lot that's difficult and hard and painful in growing.  But just because it's hard doesn't mean you should give up. 
Understand it will be hard but not permanently. 
What you're trying to achieve is permanent lasting results that will not come easy to begin with. 
But the pain will be totally worth it in the end.

  • What's the award winning story you tell yourself and others? The story you're so convinced its true that you not only believe it wholeheartedly but others believe it too.
That story you know off by heart and can find a way to use it in almost every way to stop yourself from living your best life.. you can use any other story you like and it  would be just as convincing. 
It's true. 
Keep your award winning story  but just as an experiment try on another story that empowers you.  That gives you every chance at the life you so badly want.  The story that says anything is possible because it is.  Tell this new believable story to others like you do the other one.  Convince others and yourself of this very truth. 
Try doing this for no less than 30 days
Why 30... well scientifically our brains need a month to turn a new habit and train of thought to stick.  But also if you only give it a week it's just not enough time.  And you might be inclined to give up and then you'll def not see the truth in the power of changing the story and seeing the results of that. 
Just try it. 
Notice how you feel as a result.  Notice what changes around you.  Notice any differences in the way you view the world.
You have nothing and I mean nothing to lose.

  • The power of repeating phrases like these for #anxiety can not be understated. 
If you fully commit to not only saying these but understanding and believing every word of it you will overcome #anxiety. 
Worrying is a trained habit.  A very well timed and perfectly running habit. 
You can undo the effects of over thinking and worrying by repeating and reminding yourself of these truths. 
Through commitment to this you will learn to focus on the now and not have the debilitating worry and symptoms that go with it.

  • It's super scary to make any changes in our lives.  We often stop and turn back because it feels hard and uncomfortable.. but be assured that these feelings are NOT markers or signs to give up.  In fact they represent the opposite. It's a sign that the change is a shift and requires new or undiscovered resources you haven't accessed before.  It's a sign you're growing outside your comfort zone and of course it's scary as hell.. if it always felt comfortable it wouldn't be called GROWTH.
So embrace the discomfort as a sign you're doing big and better things .. good powerful things for your life. 
Ride the discomfort knowing it won't feel this way forever...
It really doesn't... keep going

  • You can be anything you dream to be. 
What stops you? The story you tell yourself? The fear that screams louder than your dreams. 
Anything is possible.. you just gotter create a new story.
