So as part of my study of Thinking into Results, I have to look at the results and outcomes in my life that I don’t want and correct them accordingly. Two specific things I wanted to change were:
1. I love biscuits. If I were heading to a deserted island, Oreos would probably be first on my essential’s list. Naturally, I have a big sweet-tooth. Thus far that hasn’t served me well.
2. Apart from cycling and dancing, I often can’t be bothered to exercise daily. It’s just not that fun and so I don’t do it.
What was suggested I do was write out a full description of my current results i.e. my lack of exercise and my annoyingly sweet tooth that’s had me addicted to biscuits and other sugary treats. I described in detail how this makes me feel too.
Afterwards I wrote out exactly what I wanted to see happen. I wrote down that I eat raw foods about 70% of the time and that I consume a variety of fruits and vegetables. I stressed how good I feel when I look into the mirror (clean skin, well hydrated, strong and athletic, etc.).
Once I wrote out this positive description, I burned the negative one and I took pleasure in watching it burn to pieces. Symbolically, I was getting rid of the results I didn’t want and destroying the old way of doing things.
Since then, I’ve been reading my positive description almost everyday and already I feel more conscious and proactive about leading a better lifestyle. For example, I make sure that I have one big smoothie per day as well as a large bowl of salad. It’s been a week already and the changeover has felt pretty effortless.
It’s equally empowering burning old habits because I know that if there’s something I want to change in my life, I have the power to do it!
