Weight Loss Tips - Deflect Self-Sabotage

 Deflect Self-Sabotage

It’s often easier to pinpoint sabotaging behavior from others than it is to identify
it in ourselves. Through extensive personal development training, we’ve learned about the powerful, yet stealthy role our own subconscious plays in determining our success in any endeavor, including weight loss. You can be subconsciously resisting success and not be aware of this self-sabotaging condition.

The best way to identify and remove subconscious resistance to your success is to monitor your emotions. Your emotions reflect your thoughts. When you experience negative emotions, you’re disallowing your success. When you
experience positive emotions, you’re allowing your success.

Here’s a list of emotions to post on your wall. Be aware of how your thoughts trigger certain emotions and consciously adjust your thoughts to upgrade your emotions to the positive range every chance you get.

From Ask and It Is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks

Positive Emotions
1. Joy/knowledge/empowerment/freedom/love/appreciation
2. Passion
3. Enthusiasm/eagerness/happiness
4. Positive expectation/belief
5. Optimism
6. Hopefulness
7. Contentment

Negative Emotions
1. Boredom
2. Pessimism
3. Frustration/irritation/impatience
4. Overwhelm
5. Disappointment
6. Doubt
7. Worry/blame/discouragement

Learn how to use your emotions to achieve your weight loss goal! This tip can be your secret to success. If you’re happy and positive when you work out and then maintain that upbeat feeling throughout the next 24 hours, your subconscious will do everything it can to keep you supportive of yourself as you work towards your goal.

If you expect your hard work to pay off, it will!
