One very important aspect to making big changes to attain personal improvement in all areas comes from the physical aspect of the way a person looks. Many people derive a large percentage of their feelings of confidence and self esteem from the way they look in the mirror.
When a person sees a slim, great looking figure looking back at them in a full length mirror, their self esteem is naturally enhanced because they can see how good they actually look.
What You See is What You Feel
But what if a person is overweight and unfit? How does that translate to feelings of self esteem and confidence when they view themselves in the mirror?
The short answer in most cases is that image erodes a person’s self esteem making them feel less successful and less confident. This can create a snowball effect leading to low self esteem and lack of confidence in social situations where these qualities are necessary to enable the person to elevate their status either socially or in their work.
This is not desirable but can relatively easily be turned around by the person taking action and the necessary steps to lose weight and improve their fitness and health levels.
How to NOT Lose Weight
The usual method that people adopt to lose weight is to read some weight loss tips in the hope of getting some ideas on making the process as easy as possible. Then they start a diet and hope the change of diet and what they eat will result in a slimmer, better looking body.
The reality is that in many cases, the diet does not live up to expectations. The person gets downhearted quite early on, especially after only realizing a small amount of weight reduction. They give up and claim the diet didn’t work and that for whatever reason they can’t lose weight.
This is of course a lame excuse for what the reality is, which is the person didn’t try hard enough to lose that weight. Relying entirely on even one of the best diet programs to lose the weight for a person is passing the buck and not taking responsibility for their own well being and appearance.
The only way to make this work is to take responsibility and be prepared to work hard at causing their body to lose weight and become fitter. This means also doing more than just starting a propriety diet plan.
How to Achieve an Amazing Figure
Losing weight is only part of the desired outcome, as the true desire is to have a great looking figure that reflects a slim, fit and well toned physical appearance. This result is necessary to improve poise and deportment and improve confidence and self esteem.
It can only be achieved by eating a healthy diet and exercising daily. In short it means taking the bull by the horns and getting physical.
A great figure is achieved by hard physical work but there is an element to getting mind involved in this that can increase the effectiveness of the physical work immensely. The first step is to elicit the motivation to achieve the desired result.
Be Positive, Be Successful
Developing a positive mental attitude is essential to success. That’s because by creating a mindset that does not leave any room for any outcome other than success, success must be the end result!
A success mindset can be created even where it does not exist. A person can do that by utilizing self suggestion and continually reminding themselves that, “I can” to such an extent that the suggestion takes root in the subconscious mind.
When a suggestion forms and becomes rooted in the subconscious, it must become that person’s reality. It creates a level of faith in a person’s ability to achieve their goal that cannot be shaken and when a person has this faith, then success must result because from faith comes the determination and persistence necessary for success to be realized.
