It may be you have heard people state that to get fit and remain that way takes a good deal of willpower and hard work. Regrettably, this will actually discourage a number of us since even though we understand this, the thought of making the sacrifices necessary turns us off. You may identify with this although you may not be naturally lazy, you merely lack a real purpose to be focused. If we can learn to change the way we think, we will begin to act differently and this is something we can educate ourselves to do. If you want to be fitter, learning how to visualize may hold the key and we will now see what this requires.
If we talk about visualization, to many people this is simply about seeing a picture of what you want and to focus your attention on this. You may have discovered that what happens is that your thoughts begin to jump from one thing to another instead of staying focused. In your mind, you must also put in some strong feelings that will come from what fitness will really mean to you and your life. Absolute clarity is needed for this since it needs to be your vision and not influenced by others. At this point, identify emotions that this aim will then give you. You want to have an emotional anchor that you can use that makes you feel as if you have attained the weight loss or muscle gain you desire.
There are DVDs and CD’s that you can use to help you accelerate the process and you can learn about being hypnotized as well. The main objective is that you begin to notice the way you feel as the vision you now have is very clear. It is possible to improve both your body and mind by having a clear image in your head of what your aims are as you are working out. A subtle change will begin to occur as you automatically regard fitness as part of your life and self-discipline is no longer called for. Visualizing the way we have described will help you break through the self sabotage that may have kept you from sticking to any exercise program.
The benefits of learning how to do this, is that it can be applied to other facets of your life. Business goals or attracting a partner may all of a sudden seem possible as a direct consequence of the effect that fitness has on your life. As the way you look at yourself changes, the thought of not keeping fit will not enter your mind because you will be focusing on on all the opportunities that are available to you.
The benefits of being fit and healthy are there for you and if you can visualize it, you can make it happen.
