Jedi Mind Tricks!
Step 1 – Identify the behaviour
For you your problem might be that you simply eat bad food and don’t exercise enough because you don’t value yourself….
It might be that you feel like money is evil and therefore you blow it away too easily for fear of ever having too much…
Once you’ve identified your behaviour and why you do it you can move on to step 2.
Step 2 – Allow yourself to change
There are a number of ways to do this. My personal favourite is through a simple affirmation.
Start with the phrase “I will allow myself to…” and take it from there. An example might be “I will allow myself to make exercise and healthy eating a daily habit so that I can feel great about myself and the example I’m setting for my family and friends by being healthy, happy and confident!”
Simple! Changing your life doesn’t need to be a complicated process.

How to use your affirmation?
The best way to use your affirmation is first thing in the morning to say it out loud while writing it down. This will use your 3 major ways of learning (audio, visual and kinaesthetic) and therefore will be most effective.
However I also understand that some people can’t find 60 seconds in the morning to ensure the rest of their day is productive and fruitful (sarcasm) so if you’re short on time the second best method is to write it once and place it on the sun visor of your car. Every time you pull up at the lights simply flip your visor down and state your affirmation out loud! J
Once you start using your affirmation every day I guarantee you will see an improvement in your life!
What have you got to lose?
Your job right now is to schedule 10 minutes where you can sit down and have a go at writing your affirmation – it’s 10 minutes very well spent J
Dedicated to your fitness success,
PS: If you still haven’t scheduled the 10 minutes – DO IT NOW!!!!
PPS: Your life doesn’t get better by chance – it gets better by change!
