My most damaging "lie" that keeps sabotaging my lifestyle success.

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

The most damaging “lie” I believe sabotages my lifestyle success is “I can’t do this – it’s too overwhelming.” This is usually voiced in my head when I am too hungry, angry, lonely, and tired. I just can’t do this. So how can I, Lileen, turn this around?

I need to reflect daily, sometimes every hour or every minute on my thought process.

I need to learn to write things down (write down a grocery list and stick to it); eat healthy, small meals throughout the day to take away hungry feeling. Prepare for the next day!

Rest, reflect, revive myself with bubble baths, make a quiet time for myself and just do nothing, not even think!”

Call someone and speak a minute, friends you have not talked with in quite awhile. Engage in a healthy conversation with my spouse – talk about plans and keep positive.

Turn the self-sabatoging thoughts into healthy, positive thoughts and actions. Rather than I can’t do this – turn it into Yes, I can – chant it! Repeat it! Smile while doing it. Think about all I have accomplished. Know that I’ve climbed mountains to keep surviving. Yes, I can.
