Give yourself a Compliment or Gratitude Every Day
By now I don’t need to tell you the importance of self-love and body positivity when it comes to achieving your goals. The more you believe in yourself and love yourself, the more likely you are to achieve your goals—because you’ll be achieving them for the right reasons. Putting yourself down or feeling like you’re not reaching goals fast enough will make you feel like a failure instead of motivating you to work harder. The secret to achieving any goal is to realize you already have what it takes to be your best RIGHT NOW. In fact, the only thing keeping you from being the strongest, healthiest version of yourself is your own belief that you’re not already there.
How to Accomplish It:
- Start a gratitude journal. Write what you’re grateful for about your body: how your thighs are so strong, how you can run so fast, or even just that you’re healthy and alive.
- Stare in the mirror and give yourself a compliment. Look for the good in yourself, and tell yourself you’re beautiful for a million other reasons besides the way you look. Eventually, you’ll start to believe it.
- After every workout, make it a habit to silently say “thank you” to your body for working so hard and getting you through the workout.
