Have you ever noticed how your past has a way of sneaking into your present, holding you hostage, and blocking the path to your dreams? It’s as if previous “failures” are relentless gatekeepers, reminding you of every time you tried and didn’t quite succeed. But here’s the thing: living in the past is a barrier to achieving your aspirations regarding who you want to be in the future.
When you fixate on those past attempts at weight loss, you’re reinforcing memories and beliefs around failure. The more you replay those narratives, the deeper they become etched in your minds. It’s like trying to run towards the future with your feet stuck in quicksand.
So, how do you break free? Shift your focus from the rearview mirror to the road ahead. One powerful way to do this is by creating a vivid vision of yourself as you want to be in the future. I’m not talking about vague wishes here; I’m talking about strong visions. Visions that include how you feel, visions that pull in emotions, sights, sounds, and even smells.
Imagine stories of yourself hiking through forests, exploring vibrant cities, traveling to far-off lands or simply playing on the floor and running around the playground with a child or pet. Picture yourself feeling strong, vibrant, and free. Live in that future, make it as real to you as those past memories that hold you back. Why? Because when you create these detailed visions, you’re forging new pathways in your brain. You’re telling your mind, “This is the reality I’m aiming for now.”
The past may have been a part of your journey, but it doesn’t define your destination. So, let go. Embrace the power of envisioning your future, and watch how it transforms your present.
Your future you is waiting, and she’s closer than you think!
