Those limiting beliefs are holding you back

It´s incredible how much we can all accomplish in our life, we all have amazing capabilities, abilities, talents to live a happy and fulfilled life, a life we are proud of but it´s also amazing how most of us never get to live to our full potential. And the reason why we don´t accomplish as much as we could is because of limiting beliefs, if you get rid of them your life will be amazing.

Our beliefs start with an idea that is repeated over and over which can come from our family, friends, society, our neighbors, our environment, after repeating that same idea over and over it creates a belief that is kept in our subconscious mind. With negative and painful experiences the belief is created almost automatically as a way for our subconscious to make sure that we remember that event and avoid it at all costs.

When we´re kids almost everything we see and hear we take it as a fact and while we´re growing up we develop most of the beliefs that rule our life nowadays, if someone told us that we´re not good enough, that we don´t deserve to win, that money is hard to get, that we´re obese and we´ll never be lean, etc; if we hear all those negative comments over and over and over we start thinking of them as being real and they become beliefs that are now part of our subconscious.

There´s a big problem with our beliefs and that is that they create our life, if we are having success in life that means that our beliefs are right and positive, but if we´re not living the way we want that means that our beliefs are wrong and negative and they are the root of the problem.

We know that we need to take the right action that lead us to our goals but our habits, actions, beliefs and values need to be in harmony and since most of the time our subconscious mind is guiding us, our actions go towards our beliefs so if we have the wrong beliefs our habits and actions are going to follow those wrong beliefs we have in our mind even when we know consciously that those actions won´t get us closer to our goals.

Our brain is lazy so it will do everything it can to avoid pain and avoid using energy this is why beliefs and habits are important for our brain, they allow it to stay safe and keep energy. Our brain will ignore everything that doesn´t align with our beliefs, this is why when we decide to start something new like a fitness program our mind gets us all the excuses of why we shouldn´t be doing it.

Our thoughts conscious and subconscious create our reality so we may have set our goal and we take action every day but if it´s so hard for us to stay focused and it takes a lot of effort to take action, then some negative thoughts or limiting beliefs in our subconscious are holding us back. In this case our thoughts are controlling our life so what we need to do is take control of our life by taking control of our thoughts, once we are able to control our thoughts we can eliminate or get pass any limiting belief and develop a strong mindset that will lead to success.

Here are some steps you can follow to take control of your mind and start changing or eliminating limiting thoughts:

1. Identify negative or limiting beliefs.- You need to identify the beliefs that are keeping you stuck. For this you need to ask yourselves if that belief is helping me become the person I  want to be and is it helping me live the life I want to live? Is this belief taking me closer to my goal? If the answer to this questions is “no” then we´ve found a belief we need to change.

2. Decide the new beliefs you want.- You need to make sure that the new beliefs you choose help you grow and become the person you need to be to accomplish your goals.

3. Self-aware.- You need to be aware of your thoughts and when a thought or belief that you want to change comes to your mind realize that it was part of your old beliefs and it´s not part of the new ones, accept that in the past that belief was part of your thoughts and beliefs and it guided your decisions and actions but not anymore and, bring to your mind the new belief you want to replace the old belief and the one you´re working on to be part of your life.

4. Repeat the new belief over and over.- Repetition is key, you need to think and remember your new beliefs over and over until they get to the subconscious mind.

Changing beliefs or eliminating limiting beliefs is hard, it requires attention and being present and aware so work on one belief at a time, choose the one that will have a bigger impact, if you want to lose weight and get in shape you can start by taking a walk of 5 to 10 minutes in the morning before you go to work or late night after you come back home, or you can take a 10 minute walk after lunch or dinner or both if you can and say to yourself that you deserve to be lean, you deserve to be in great shape.

Do this tonight before you fall asleep, think of something you are grateful for and feel the emotion of gratitude, once you feel the emotion maintain it while saying to yourself that you deserve to be lean and in great shape. Tomorrow when you wake up feel grateful for the amazing day to come and repeat to yourself that you deserve to be lean and in great shape. As you go through your day remember those phrases and when a negative one comes to mind replace it with a positive one, and start visualizing yourself being lean and in that amazing physique you want.

The subconscious mind, how it is controlling your life.

In the last mindset post we talked about the conscious mind so today we´ll talk about the subconscious mind.

If you´ve been doing visualizations and affirmations and you still don´t get what you want or you aren´t living the life you want yet, you may be thinking that all those exercises of visualizations and affirmations don´t work. Let me tell you something, they do work but the problem lies in your subconscious mind, when you do those exercises you´re concentrating or focusing on your goal in a conscious way for a specific amount of time, it may be a couple of minutes in the morning or at night but for the rest of the day your subconscious is controlling your thoughts, emotions and beliefs and this is the reason why you haven´t achieved your goals.

Our subconscious mind is a huge memory bank, it doesn´t matter how old we are it can remember stuff from kinder garden and many more memories across our entire life but there are some rules or guides to which information will be stored and which we´ll be forgotten. It stores so much information every single day and we can be sure that if it´s something important we won´t forget it.

So with this I think that it´s clear for us that it´s job is to store information and with this it comes a problem, our subconscious will make sure that we act or respond the way we were programmed, that program comes from when we were born and grow up by our family, teachers, friends, school, neighbors it comes from people around us and our environment. When we were growing up our subconscious stored a lot of information and now years later it will make sure that everything we do and say goes according to that information it stored years ago.

This is why we can do visualization and affirmation exercises in the morning and when we get to school or work we will do the same things and follow the same routine, our subconscious is in control of us the problem is that the reason we´re doing affirmations and visualizations is because we want to change something in our lives this means that our subconscious information is not aligned with our goals.

We´ve been running a program which we can call routine and habits which our subconscious mind has stored and memorize for years and this routine keeps us in a comfort zone and every time we want to get out of that comfort zone we feel fear and discomfort because we´re doing something that has nothing to do with the information that our subconscious has stored.

The good point is that the subconscious doesn´t think it only stores information, obeys commands from the conscious and make sure that our reality goes according to its information so what this means is that we can change the information that it has stored so that we get to a point where our subconscious stores the information that we´re giving it through our conscious mind and that our reality aligns with what we want and what our subconscious has stored.

The way to do this is by changing our thoughts consciously over and over until they become part of our subconscious but, when we concentrate on our goal or the thoughts that we want our subconscious to store we need to add emotions to them also we need to do them over and over, it doesn´t matter if we´re visualizing or if we´re making a new healthy choice we need to do it over and over and our brain will try to get us back to our old thoughts and activities, the moment you feel fear or worry or your brain starts sending you all kind of excuses don´t listen, just keep making that new choice and focusing on that new thought, with time your subconscious will give up and store that new information while eliminating the old patterns and this is when you can start changing your life.

This is how new habits are developed by repeating the new choice over and over, it takes time and it won´t be easy but it will be worthy. We can do the same with our thoughts just make sure that the thoughts you want to install in your subconscious are the same, sometimes we keep changing options over and over, take one thought and make it as clear as you can, keep visualizing it and add emotion to it.

It doesn´t matter what we want to accomplish, it doesn´t matter if we want to achieve a fitness goal, get a better job or completely change our life we need to have our conscious and subconscious mind working together in harmony, we need to take control of both of them and exercise them the same way we exercise our muscles. We need to install new thoughts on our subconscious and the way to do it is by being aware and conscious of our thoughts.

One simple exercise you can start doing today,

1.- Take a goal you want to achieve, be clear and sure of that goal,

2.- Create an image on your mind of what you look, or how your life looks like once you´ve already achieved your goal and visualize this image on a visualization exercise,

3.- The rest of the day pay attention to the thoughts on your mind and make sure that all of them go according to your goal, make sure those thoughts are positive.

Try to be aware of your thoughts the entire day, the more you think a certain thought the faster it will become part of your subconscious. Being present is key if we want to be able to take control of our mind.

The conscious mind! Start living consciously

Knowing how our brain works is key if we want to make the best use of it and if we want it to work for us and help us achieve our goals. We´ve all heard about the conscious and the subconscious mind. We need to train our mind the same way we train our muscles. Our conscious mind can change our life, by being present we are able to make better decisions and focus on what matters, focus on what we really want and that´s the key to start living the life we want.

Have you wonder why you don´t achieve your goals even when you do your meditations, affirmations and visualization exercises every day?

Our conscious mind is the one we are aware of, it´s our thinking mind, our creative mind, it has a limit capacity and it´s amazing at doing one thing at a time. You may have heard that some people are great at multi-tasking but, none of us actually is good at it when we concentrate all our attention on the task we have at hand we get way better results, our conscious mind is amazingly powerful at concentrating and working on one activity at a time so if you want to be more productive and also lower stress, stop multi-tasking.

Every day we are aware of what´s happening around us , at the office or school, at the neighborhood, may be in some country far from us thanks to the news and we are aware of ourselves, how we feel in that moment and everything we need to do. There´s so much going on, there are so many distractions and we´re not being able to concentrate on what matters to us.

Our conscious mind can only focus on one task at a time and it can only hold one thought at a time, this is important because most of our thoughts are negative and they are the same negative thoughts every day repeating over and over and since our conscious mind can only hold one thought at a time this is the key and secret to changing our life.

With this we have a more clear idea and can understand why it´s so hard to change habits, to change thoughts and create the life we want, we may do our visualizations and affirmations exercises in the morning or at night for a couple of minutes but after that we start our day and from that point on everything is a routine, habits and systems that we can do with our eyes closed so, when we´re driving to our job or school we need to be aware of what´s going on around but since we´ve been driving for some years now it is part of our subconscious so we can also be thinking of the meeting we´re having that day, the email list that keeps getting bigger, all the work left to do, how our we´re going to pay the bills, etc.

So as you can see we put some work and time by visualizing and thinking on what we want consciously a couple of minutes a day but, for the rest of the day other thoughts take control and those thoughts are completely the contrary of what we want to achieve and those contrary thoughts are the ones we´re thinking for the most part of the day this means that our conscious and subconscious mind are not working in harmony and this is the reason why we don´t achieve our goals.

If you want to change your life you need to start living being aware and present in the moment, being able to concentrate all your thought and energy on the one task at hand, this way you´ll be living consciously, thinking and creating the life you do want.

We need to make a constant effort to concentrate on our goal and positive thoughts and keep repeating them over and over and when life get´s in the way which happens to us every day we can´t let our subconscious mind get in the way and take us back to our old thoughts and habits.

We need to take charge of our conscious mind and one way to do it is by being aware, being present, being in the moment and concentrating all our attention on the task we´re doing, also make sure that when a thought comes to us it is positive and related to what we want to achieve, stop letting your mind wander on negative stuff every time a negative thought comes to mind just change it for the opposite and positive one.

Here is a simple exercise you can start doing right now to start taking control of your conscious mind:

1.- Take one activity that is going to give you the fastest results or the one that is more important to get done,

2.- Take all distractions away, if you´re working on a computer close all internet tabs, documents and programs you don´t need for the task you chose to work on, if you need to keep your phone close to you (just in case of emergency) keep it, otherwise turn it off or put it in silent mode,

3.- Work on that activity or task for 45 minutes straight, concentrate all your attention and energy on that activity, (set an alarm for 45 minutes)

4.- When you´re done take a look at how much you accomplish.

When you do this exercise make sure that those 45 minutes your mind is completely focused on the task you are working on, if you get distracted and your mind starts to wander just bring it back and concentrate on the activity.

If you do this exercise over and over and make it a habit you´ll see that with time it´s easier to stay focused and concentrated on the task at hand and you are more present on what you are doing at every moment, this makes it easier to stay focused on the right thoughts so that we are able to change our life.

Now you know that our brain can be very complex and if we don´t know at least the basics of how it works we won´t be able to create a plan that can help us achieve our goals.

The importance of small achievements

6_foto tree goals

How many times have you think about setting small goals and then refuse to them because you think those small goals won´t get you anywhere?

Most of us don´t have the confidence and believe that we can achieve amazing things in life, for so many different reasons we´ve been losing self-confidence and we no longer believe in ourselves, we´re not accountable any more.

When we want to live a better life we know we need to change something but if we set big goals we won´t achieve them and we feel even worse, we can´t start with a big goal if we don´t have self-confidence and if we don´t believe in ourselves so what we need to do is start small.

When we set small goals like doing 20 minutes of exercise every day is a huge step that will give us amazing results, when we are able to stick with this goal we can add another one like giving up all junk food, now those 2 smaller goals will have a huge impact on all aspects of our life.

When we start seeing progress, when we see those results showing up and when we are able to accomplish those smaller goals or achievements we increase our confidence, we start believing in ourselves and that will give us everything we need to set bigger goals knowing that we can do it.

We need to start small and keep building slowly, this way we will achieve greater goals than if we try to start with something big when we´re not accountable, when we don´t believe in ourselves, when we don´t believe we can´t do it and we deserve it and when we´ve lost self-confidence.

We want to develop a mindset that can help us get through life and live to our full potential, we want to develop or replace old bad habits with good ones that make it easier for us to live an amazing life so we need to think in the future, in long term not short term.

We´re looking for results that last even if they take longer to achieve not for faster results that won´t last long enough. We need to think of the future, long term but work short term what I mean is that we need to keep our focus or keep remembering our finale goal but put the hard work, time, effort, dedication today to build the habits we need to sustain our results.

Building confidence and believe takes time and the way to do it is with small accomplishments, setting goals that give us results every week or two so that we can see progress.

If we have a big goal in mind chances are we can accomplish it if we believe in ourselves and that confidence has increased. What we need to do is set an ultimate date to achieve your finale goal and start working backwards dividing that big goal or finale goal into smaller goals we can achieve each month and week.

Once we have the smaller goals or weekly goals we need to focus on them, work as hard as we can always remembering of our finale goal.

How our emoionts affect our reality

18 How positivity lowers stress

Welcome back to our site! You may be asking what is all this about emotions and creating the life you want so keep reading…

We´ve all heard about the Law of Attraction and we´ve all heard so many time that it doesn´t work and for some people it do work. Many people talk about thoughts and creating a mental image in our mind of our goal but not so many talk about emotions and how this is the secret to achieving our goals.

Our thoughts and emotions need to be in harmony if we want to attract something to our life or manifest (I don´t really like this terms of attracting or manifesting, I´ll tell you why later to get deeper). We may be visualizing a clear image in our mind of our goal which is sending a frequency but we may be sending a complete different frequency through our emotions and this creates noise, we´re sending 2 different and maybe opposing frequencies or energies and that´s why we don´t achieve our goals.

In the last post we learnt how to change our beliefs and thoughts now that we have the right beliefs and thoughts and that we a aware most our day we need to start working on our emotions. All negative emotions like fear, anger, frustration, resentment, revenge are very low frequency. We spend too much time feeling this emotions and that´s what we attract, every time we get mad, angry, frustrated and start fighting or disagreeing with someone we are allowing this emotions to take control of us. There are 3 positive emotions that we need to focus on which are:

1.- Gratitude

2. Love

3. Joy

This 3 positive emotions carry a high frequency and this will not only make us feel good, we start attracting positive situations and people to our life, suddenly our life improves in all areas. When we feel this positive emotions over and over and over we are elevating our frequency and it attracts situations and stuff that make us feel those emotions, when we combine those emotions with our goals it´s a lot easier for us to achieve them.

There´s less resistance and it feels like everything is falling into place and we are in the right path so we get more motivated to put the time and effort needed towards our goal until we get the results.

If we are able to live with those 3 emotions all the time, the entire day our life will be completely different, for this to happen we need to be aware at the beginning to change our thoughts and emotions every time we´re feeling a negative one until positivity becomes a part of us. We get to a point where we´re loving and enjoying every single moment of our lives, we´re living the present and we are grateful for all the amazing stuff coming to us.

It doesn´t matter where you are or what you are doing right now, take a couple of minutes to think about everything you are grateful for and think about everything and everyone you love, feel the love and gratitude in all your body. Now try to maintain those amazing feelings for the rest of your day and tomorrow when you wake up do this little exercise.

How our beliefs create our life

7_volcan

Have you ever asked yourself how much those our beliefs can impact our life?

For the most part of our lives our subconscious mind is the one getting us through life using our believes and values as guides.

A belief is when we accept that something is true, we´re sure and certain about it, there´s no doubt for us that it´s true. It starts with an idea that is repeated over and over which can come from our family, friends, society, our neighbors, our environment, after repeating that same idea over and over it creates a belief that is kept in our subconscious mind. With negative and painful experiences the belief is created almost automatically as a way for our subconscious to make sure that we remember that event and avoid it at all costs.

There´s a big problem with our beliefs and that is that they create our life, if we are having success in life that means that our beliefs are right and positive, but if we´re not living the way we want that means that our beliefs are wrong and negative and they are the root of the problem.

We know that we need to take the right action that lead us to our goals but our habits, actions, beliefs and values need to be in harmony and since most of the time our subconscious mind is guiding us, our actions go towards our beliefs so if we have the wrong beliefs our habits and actions are going to follow those wrong beliefs we have in our mind even when we know consciously that those actions won´t get us closer to our goals.

Our brain is lazy so it will do everything it can to avoid pain and avoid using energy this is why beliefs and habits are important for our brain, they allow it to stay safe and keep energy. Our brain will ignore everything that doesn´t align with our beliefs, this is why when we decide to start something new like a fitness program our mind gets us all the excuses of why we shouldn´t be doing it.

Developing a though mindset and changing our beliefs is that first step when we want to change something in our life

Steps to change our beliefs:

1. Identify wrong beliefs.- We need to identify the beliefs that are keeping us stuck. For this we need to ask ourselves if that belief is helping us become the person we want to be and is it helping us live the life we want to live? If the answer to this questions is “no” then we´ve found a belief we need to change.

2. Decide the new beliefs we want.- We need to make sure that the new beliefs we choose help us grow and become the person we need to be to accomplish our goals.

3. Self-aware.- We need to be aware of our thoughts and when a thought or belief that we want to change comes to our mind realize that it was part of your old beliefs and it´s not part of the new ones, accept that in the past that belief was part of our thoughts and beliefs and it guided our decisions and actions but not anymore and bring to our mind the new belief we want to replace the old belief and the one we´re working on to be part of our life.

4. Repeat the new belief over and over.- Repetition is key, we need to think and remember our new beliefs over and over until they get to the subconscious mind.

This 4 steps look very simple but doing them requires effort, take your time and start with one belief at a time, you may one to look for one certain belief that is causing a negative impact in different areas of your life so that when you replace that belief with a good one the positive impact will be seen in different areas of your life.

Now that we know the impact that our values and beliefs have in our lives and we know the steps we need to follow to change them find a piece of paper and pencil and go through the 4 steps and start changing your life now!!

The importance of developing the right mindset.

00 Intro

Mindset is everything if we let our mindset control us by having a weak mindset and the wrong thoughts we will keep struggling for the rest of our life. If we don´t like something on our lives right now we need to change something and that change begins with our thoughts and beliefs.

Our life is based on daily habits, rituals and routines and those are created by our beliefs and values which we learnt since we were born and growing up from our parents, family, school, society and everyone around us. If everyone around us believed that money is hard to get, that we need to work so hard, that we need to have a safe 9 to 5 job, that rich people are bad, etc; those same beliefs were installed in our brain. If people around us told us time and time again that we´re not good enough, that we don´t deserve to achieve big goals, that we are lazy and everything we do is wrong those beliefs get installed in our brain and those are the ones controlling our life today.

Our thoughts create our reality, what we think we become with this in mind it´s clear that we need to be really aware of our thoughts, beliefs and emotions because they can pull us back which is what happen to most of us, it´s not that we´re not capable of doing something or that we don´t deserve it, it´s our beliefs and thoughts the ones holding us back so we need to change those thoughts and beliefs and develop the right strong mindset that keep us moving forward and this is the hardest part.

Developing the right mindset comes in 2 parts, part one is about thoughts, beliefs and emotions, part two is about focus and discipline.

We all have negative and limiting beliefs which are the ones keeping us stuck where we are and pulling us back, in most cases the reason why we don´t achieve our goals and dreams is because of limiting beliefs and thoughts that were installed in our brain years ago and today they are the ones controlling out life. In part one we eliminate those beliefs and thoughts by replacing them with the right positive ones that go according to the life we want to live.

In this day and age there is too much stuff that takes away our attention from what matters, the ability of focus and concentration is necessary to achieve anything but nowadays is so hard to focus and concentrate on the things that matter most and we waste too much time on social media, Tv, news Netflix, criticizing, blaming or complaining, etc. In the second part we develop an intense focus, concentration and discipline towards our goals where nothing external can take us away from what we want.

We need the right beliefs, emotions and thoughts and also focus and discipline to achieve our goals, when develop this type of mindset we are able to achieve amazing stuff in our life, our potential is incredible but we need to develop a mindset that help us live to that potential and that´s our goal. It takes time to develop this mindset but it is worthy, with time you´ll see that you can achieve the impossible.

Developing the right mindset is hard and takes time, since our brain wants to stay in a comfort zone, a place where it knows what to do and doesn´t need to work that much every time we make a different choice to create a new good habit it will try to pull us back with all kind of excuses and reasons why we can´t but we need to ignore this thoughts and keep going with our new choice until it´s a new habit.

The moment we start developing the right mindset by practicing the tools and exercise we share with you in this site our life gets better, it won´t be from one day to another but just in a couple weeks (if we´ve been consistent with our practice) we start seeing amazing results so this is not only to achieve a fitness goal like weight loss or get in shape, it´s about maintaining and improving those results but also improving our life.

Give your life meaning and purpose

Your life will change when you find your purpose, we´re all looking for fulfillment and the way to feel fulfilled is by helping other people. Once you find out what you love to do and how you can help people doing what you love you´ll live happier and you´ll wake up motivated.

Most people live waiting for Fridays and pay days and they hate Monday mornings as if it was the worst, people talk terrible about their jobs and that they have to go to work to pay bills but we spend most of our time on our jobs. Many of us have 9 to 5 jobs 5 to 6 days a week so we only have left 1 or 2 days to spend with people we love doing what we love. This is not real life.

We do not come to this world for Fridays and weekends or just to pay the bills. Most people live waiting for Fridays, for weekends, for Holidays, when we have the time, when we have money, when we find that amazing person, when we find love. We´re always looking for the perfect time, for the perfect moment, but while we´re waiting… time pass by, one more day is gone, one more month is gone, one more year is gone.

There´s not a perfect time, there´s not a perfect moment. Start living today, start enjoying today, be happy and have fun today. Find that person that makes you better, who supports you, who share your dreams and goals. Enjoy every moment of life, travel, meet new people, visit new place, spend time with people you love and you enjoy spending some time together, make that call to your friend or family, forgive that person. Buy that car you always dreamed of, buy that jacket or those shoes but don´t get too obsessed with money.

It´s not only about the money, the fame or any other stuff money can buy. It´s the freedom you have everyday to do what you want to do, to do what you love to do, feel the passion and enjoy every single day. Do it now.

Ask yourself, how do you want to live the rest of your life? how do you want to be remember? You need to know what you want to do with your life, knowing your values and what´s important to you will help you find your purpose. What´s important to you? What do you care about? Is it nature? Is it justice? Is it security? What are the values you live by? They may be honesty, integrity, friendship, discipline.

What inspires you and motivate you every morning? An easy way to give meaning to your life is to follow your heart, do what you love to do when you do the things you love to do you enjoy the time and good things start coming your way. You´re not stressed and you´re not focused on negative things. If you find ways to help people by doing what you love you´ll feel amazing, you´ll feel a sense of satisfaction.

To live a better life, to live the life of your dreams and starting living your purpose you´ll need to get out of your comfort zone, fear will hit you so often that you would want to give up. Following your heart and living your life with purpose means going against what most people tell you to do. So you need to be prepared to go the road alone. There´s nothing to be afraid of, if lives´ meaning is positive, inspiring and motivating, if you help thousands of people you´ll feel amazing.

Let´s change people’s life, lets help people live healthier and happier. I´ll be so thankful if you share this post, you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

Working hard is just half of the puzzle, you need to work smart, knowing what you´re doing and why you´re doing it is highly important.

You can work as hard as you can but if you´re not working right you may be headed on the wrong direction, having a clear goal or target is the first step, then knowing what you need to do to hit that goal and creating an action plan with the proper tools that are going to lead you to your goal is working smart.

You need a plan that´s going to lead you to where you want to go, otherwise you´re just wasting time and energy and in times like the ones we´re living now where we want results as fast possible you need to be sure that all the hard work is going to give you the results you want.

Yes it´s possible to get amazing results and to get them as fast possible if you work hard and if you work smart, working smart means that you have a plan or program based on the best tools to achieve your goal, working hard means that you put in the effort and intensity needed on your workouts and you make healthier choices for your diet.

To work smart you need the right information and what works best for you, there are different tools or strategies you can use for cardio and resistance training and for your diet, any of this tools will not give the same results to two people, our bodies respond different to macro nutrients ratios and exercising so it´s important that you know how your body responds and what works best for you so that you can design a program for your specific goals.

Changing your routine or adding some variation to your workouts will keep the workouts challenging but you need to know when and how to add variation so that this changes don´t affect your progress. There´s so much information out there and it becomes hard to know what´s right and wrong, I´m sharing with you the right and most effective and efficient tools you can use to get to your goals, but do your research and try out by yourself every single tool I share, it´s the only way you´ll learn and understand how things work.

Information applied is power, that´s where you get the knowledge you need to change your body, to change your life and to help people around you. It´s the only way to work smart, to know that you´re doing the right thing that will lead you to your goal.

Don´t stick with what you read in one place or what someone told you, do the research, read as much as you can then apply what you read. You need to be careful with what information you try by yourself because there are so many myths and wrong information that can have negative effects.

Never stop learning, exercise and nutrition are key for living healthier, knowing how to fit both of them into your lifestyle with the freedom to enjoy and have great times requires discipline in the beginning.  If you work smart, if you know what you´re doing your results will come.

Let´s change people’s life, lets help people live healthier and happier. I´ll be so thankful if you share this post, you can follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube.

The problem with instant gratification

30 The problem with instant gratification
views
203

In a world where we can have too many things instantly, we have light instantly just by turning the switch on, we can watch movies just going to Netflix or turning on the Tv, we can watch our favorite tv shows in our computers, if we´re looking for a specific product we can go to Amazon and buy it and we can have it on our door tomorrow.

In this same way we´re looking for instant results or instant gratification in whatever we do, we want to lose weight fast and we want results in one week, we want everything fast and we don´t even think on the future, what matters to us is this right moment, we change or give up some reward in the future for smaller pleasure we can have right now.

The fitness industry takes advantage of this, they sell fitness programs to help you lose as much weight as possible in a short period of time even when it´s not healthy and when you stop following the program you gain all the weight back and more, you do more harm to your body. They also sell so many different magic pills and powders which aren´t healthy either and most of them don´t work.

What you can when you have a goal is stop for a couple of minutes and think if the choice you´re going to make is going to get you closer to your goal or if it´s only going to give you instant pleasure, once you realize that ask yourself if you are willing to take a step backwards from your goal for just a couple of minutes from that instant reward.

In many cases we don´t think about the future so we make most of our decisions based on short term so what matters is that moment, and the next week, next month or a year from now or out of our thoughts.

If you have a goal you need to consider that there will be many choices every day that can keep you closer to your goal or can take you backwards and those choices are made based on your goal, a bigger reward in the future that will give you a lot more pleasure and fulfillment or an instant pleasure.

Many of us are so impatient that are not willing to wait enough time for a bigger reward and are not able to think ahead of time. Realizing that the best things in life take more time is a way to keep us focused, if we really want to achieve something big then we need enough time, we need to work hard and at the end will feel accomplished. If we let our thoughts and emotions trick us and we choose instant rewards instead of bigger rewards this will affects our journey and our results, those instant rewards are the ones taking us away from achieving our goal.

When you set a goal, or if you are working in one right now, are you willing to do whatever it takes and give it enough time until you achieve it? or do you let your mind trick you and you choose the instant rewards? this makes a huge difference, this may be the reason why you´re not seeing progress.  If you get some fat food or junk food just for the instant pleasure this may be the reason why you´re not losing any more weight. Do you have a winning mindset that will help you eliminate all junk, processed and fast food for as long as you need so that you get that superhero physique you are looking for in 12 weeks, 4 or 6 months for now or you going to let it get you back time and time again for the instant pleasure of some junk food?

It would so much to me if you share this post with your friends and family and if you follow me on Twitter and Facebook, together we can help millions live a better life.
