Like you… I have failed in my diet before.

Okay, you started your diet 5 days ago, you are following through like a focused ninja.  Then your boss loads your desk with a pile of work to finish by the end of the day. So you run to the vending machine and grab a bag of Doritos and a can of coca cola and you eat them compulsively…when you’re done… you feel better… next… you feel miserable and you hate yourself because you didn’t accomplished what you had set out for yourself.

Stop hating yourself and thinking you’re a failure! You are a human being! Shake off the dust and turn things around.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, 
but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

1-Let go of the past.

What’s done is done. Let the past be where it belongs IN THE PAST.

2-Identify the lesson.

Everything that happens is all part of a learning experience. We are here to learn with our mistakes. Every difficult moment in our lives is accompanied by an opportunity for personal growth.

3-Stop the negative attitude.

Negative thinking creates negative results. Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story. The mind must believe you can do something before it’s actually happen.

Think you have the power over your hungry stomach and over the pain. You want to look amazing don’t you?

4-You are responsible for your current situation.

Take accountability for your mistakes and weakness.

You are the only one who can directly control the out comes of your life.

5-Focus on your goal!

Keep in mind what results you want. Make a wish board and write down the changes you want to see in your body.

6-Be specific with your goals.

When you set new goals for yourself, try to be as specific as possible.  “I want to lose twenty pounds” is a goal you can aim to achieve.  “I want to lose weight” is not.

7-Concentrate on doing instead of not doing.

“Don’t think about eating that chocolate donut!”  What are you thinking about now?  Eating that chocolate donut, right?  When you concentrate on not thinking about something, you end up thinking about it.

8- Maintain self-control and work on it for real.

If you want a real second chance, you’ve got to be willing to give it all you got.  No slacking off!  This means you have to strengthen and maintain your self-control.

Remember, life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile.  Achieving your dreams can be a lot of work, even the second time around.

Be ready for it!
