Our language is a window to the mind.
In other words, what we say gives huge insight into how we think about and approach challenges.
We all have challenges - albeit each one unique to ourselves.
But there’s TWO very distinct types of mindset - one which will all but guarantee we don’t succeed at something.
The other, all but guarantees that we WILL succeed eventually.
Those mindsets “show up” in how we speak about our situations.
The examples below are filtered through the goal of losing weight - but they can easily be applied to anything else.
Language type 1: Reactive
Thinking like this - and thus speaking like this - is to believe that the problem isn’t solveable.
It’s to believe that you are not responsible for changing your situation.
It’s to believe that it’s the fault of your circumstances.
It’s to believe that you can only solve your weight loss problem, once SOMETHING ELSE changes.
Language type 2: Proactive
Thinking like this - and thus speaking like this - is to believe that you and only you are responsible for losing weight.
It’s to believe that it’s down to you and nobody else, to change your situation.
It’s to believe that you have lots of things you can control and change.
It’s to believe that you can only solve your weight loss problem, once YOU change something about how you view and act ton your current situation.
If you catch yourself thinking or talking like the first example, push yourself to adopt the mindset and language of example 2.
You don’t have to know HOW to solve your weight loss problem straight away.
But you DO need to believe and accept that it’s down to you.
Once you accept that - that’s when getting help from others to support you comes in :-)
