You have some goals you want to reach.
Complete a 5K?
Feel more confident when you walk into that meeting?
Be able to lift your kids (without hurting your back)?
Be around for your kids when they have your grandkids?
Lose 20 pounds?
To reach those goals you have to change your habits.
And to change your habits you have to believe you can, right?
This past week I learned a powerful technique to changing your beliefs and I want to share it with you:
Whatever habit you are wanting to upgrade, write what you need to believe concerning it.
For example -
GOAL: Complete a 5K
HABIT: Run/walk 4 days each week according to training plan
BELIEF: Exercise is important to my life and I am able to stick with the training plan
BELIEF STACK: Write out 50 reasons that belief is true. Yes. 50.
The first 10 or so will be easy to write out…
“I have followed a walking program before.”
“My kids want to walk with me a couple of nights/week.”
“I like how I sleep better when I exercise.”
But the power comes when you have to dig deep to get all the way to 50 reasons. And sometimes you have to turn an excuse into a reason.
“My work is so busy that I don’t have time” becomes “I come up with creative solutions while I run, so I actually work faster.”
