Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - It's not who you are that holds you back. It's who you think you're not.

SparkPeople's Comments

We often have a distorted view of ourselves and our capabilities. Don't put yourself in a box--people can change! Just because you were a certain way in the past does not mean you have to continue to be that way now or in the future. Your life is in your hands, so mold it however you want to!

I like this. Here's to not thinking of what I was but who I am and continue to strive to be.

This one hits me, too. I hold myself back quite often, and it's sad. Perhaps if I remember that it's who I think I'm not that is holding me back, I can push through and think, "Hey, why not me, too?"

This was me a long time ago. Then I realized I needed to change for the greater good . I was going nowhere as I was so I found Spark People and everything changed for me. I finally knew who I really was.

I have this on my bulletin board and I read it every day. It really starts my day off on the right note.

I am truly held back every day by what I "think" I'm not. I'm trying to alter a long pattern of negative thinking and it's not so easy!

This moves me and makes me recall the video I saw today and how you are to give yourself positive reinforcement. It's so easy to say I'm not a runner, I'm not strong, I'm not going to the gym today....
