Hold That Thought

Dr. Wayne Dyer asserts, "There is a law in psychology that if you form a picture in your mind of what you would like to be, and you keep and you hold that picture there long enough, you will soon become exactly as you have been thinking."

Furthermore, "the imbalance between your desire for a healthy body that feels great and persistently unhealthy habits is not remedied by simply changing those habits. You must have a firm determination to learn the art of passionately believing in something that doesn't yet exist, and refuse to allow that picture to be distorted by you or anyone else. Truly, you are not what you eat or how much you exercise, but rather what you believe about the you that you're presently birthing in your thoughts."

"Keep reminding yourself, I get what I think about, whether I want it or not."

Wow! Those are powerful words to think about.

Your post reminds me of a quote from Henry Ford: "If you think you can or think you can't, you're right."

I'm going to hold on to an image of myself as a healthy and happy woman!

Great post - thank you!
