Had a few ninjas PM me the other night.


There was a programme on BBC2 called ‘What’s the right diet for you’.


Nearly caught up on it.


Lot’s of interesting ideas, methods and approaches to weight loss.


But one thing that I noticed literally every 10 seconds was the terminology the people in the programme used.


Every single one of the volunteers (long term over weight people who’d struggled with losing weight) described everything they had to do in a negative way.


It was “hard work”.


They were “missing out”.


They were “on a diet”.


They were “going to try to stick to it”.


They “hoped they’d keep it up”.


They planned to “try to keep it going”.


And so on.


We’ve mentioned before that the words you use can drive you thought processes which drive your actions.


If you use terms and expressions like this, the thoughts that follow it will be setting you up for failing to complete the actions you want to.


Changing the way you describe things will be a forced action to start with.


But the more you do it, the more it becomes second nature.


And the more it starts to affect your thought processes and the actions that follow it.


Try changing the way you describe what you’re doing.


To things like:


“I look after myself”.


“I want to be healthy, have good energy levels, sleep and sex drive”.


“I like the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle”.


And so on.


You get the idea.


Look at the way you describe what you’re doing.


And have a think if there a better ways you could phrase it.



Much love,
