"You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose."

We become what we think we are....

I may be repeating a post here....  Sorry if I am.  I am passionate about this subject!  I can remember typing this but can't find the blog...  it is probably recent and I am just missing it!

~*~*~*~

We become what we think we are.

Our subconscious minds are very powerful and also very dumb.  They do not know right or wrong, good or bad.  They take what we say and think and bring forward related thoughts and words.  And actions.  Our minds assume what we think and talk about most is what we want most.  Oh and our mind doesn't pay attention to words like 'not'.

I was told once (a long time ago) that our sub conscious mind is like a juke box.  We can choose what to play, but it is all there waiting.  Every single thing we have seen, heard, felt, tasted or smelt. 

As a teenager my sister had anorexia.  I was a healthy 55kg (121lb) teenager.  She was a tiny 35kg (77lb).    I felt FAT.  I really believe that part of the reason I became fat is because I felt fat.

In my 20's I got to goal at WW.  For many reasons I did not stay there and since then I have started WW many times but not stayed with it to get to goal.  Most times when I started I thought about the 'failures'.  Self fulfilling?  I think so.

I can choose which of memories to 'play'.  I can choose the words and thoughts I use.

Thoughts become words
Words become actions
Actions become outcomes

What outcomes are your thoughts driving you towards?

What self talk will you use today?

I choose to remember the confident teenager, the person to who got to WW goal.
I choose to focus on becoming a slim, confident, fit, healthy, sexy woman.

The rest can get dusty in my memory banks :p

Hi fiona.
Good post.
I am always on about your inner tape.
very important to replace thattape with positive ones.

I agree! It's so important to think positively, because whatever we think, we become. You are so right! I need to remind myself of this more often so I can think thin! :) J/K- I have seriously been thinking a lot lately about my attitude and how to be more happy, and I know it starts in my mind before anything else. Thanks for the great post!

So very very true Fiona! Even at my (grown up) slimest and fittest, I believed I was FAT and hence as soon as I took my hand off the wheel, so to speak, I attracted more FAT to myself. This is an incredibly vicious cycle that I need to escape. I have all the tools but need to implement them on an ongoing basis. Not as easy as I wish it were.
