You Must Believe You Are That Person.
We all have identities of who we believe we are. Our thoughts and behaviours are in line with this identity. We can attempt to shift thoughts and behaviours through affirmations and habits, but until you shift your identity you will not make major headway.
You don’t get abs and then become the person that has abs.
You become the person who has abs and then you get the abs.
The process of reaching a goal is always more important than the goal itself.
Your identity, beliefs and actions determine what you have. Not the other way around. That’s why the journey is so critical. It’s the mindset shift. Without realising the need to appreciate the journey goals become hollow and short-lived.
Start believing you’re the healthiest version of yourself, you’ve already reached your goal, and think about the habits you have and decisions you’re making. Once you believe you are that person, your actions and behaviours will follow. And when that happens, your physical appearance will reflect that.
Change starts from the inside.
