You are capable of amazing things

I’ve lost over 50 pounds and have kept it off for years. Much of my advice for those who want to accomplish the same and then some doesn’t necessarily involve getting your food perfect or the perfect exercise regime.  To truly be successful with a weight loss or other health-related goal, it honestly starts in the mind. 
     I was inspired by this weekend’s “You are a Badass” calendar message.  
     You do have infinite greatness inside of you, yet, as the message suggests, many let their internal BS win over.
     Your belief in yourself has to be louder than the internal (and sometimes external) voices that suggest otherwise. 
     Too many folks let their failed past experiences lead them to believe that they’ll never be successful.  Thankfully, you are not limited in attempts that can be made at improving your health.  There is no one out there saying, “you’ve already tried 142 times, you are no longer able to try again.” 
     Like the message says, you have infinite greatness inside of you!  
     There is but one limitation though…and that is you.  You are your only limit.  The BS reasons you tell yourself why you can’t be successful are your limitations.
     Oprah Winfrey was told she wasn’t fit for television and is now a media mogul and millionaire (or dare I say billionaire?).  J.K. Rowlings was told her book would never sell and now she is one of the best-selling authors of all time and Harry Potter is all over the place.  Steve Jobs was once fired from Apple, then returned to help launch products that we now use everyday in many facets of our life.  Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team and went on to be one of the best basketball players of all time and kids love their Jordan sneakers.  Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper because he lacked creativity and it’s likely not very many people have NOT heard of Disney world or been there.  If they haven’t, they’ve likely watched a Disney movie. 
     There is nothing different from these people and you.  What you might be missing though is your ability to learn from failure, reflect on it, and work to improve and be just a bit more successful in your next attempt at what you want to improve.  As the saying goes, the only place “success” comes before “work” is in the dictionary.  You gotta do the work. A common saying in Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous is, “it works if you work it…work it you’re worth it.”
     My encouragement for you this week…ditch the BS and the beliefs that don’t push you forward and tap into your infinite greatness.
