Change

What are your beliefs about change? Do you believe that you can change what you need to change in your life?

I like what Henry Ford said-"Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right."

A good example is weight loss-if you want to lose weight and keep it off, you have to fundamentally change the way you think about food-in other words, is food fuel or is it for pleasure only? Do you eat more when you are depressed or bored? If you think of food strictly as something that makes you "feel better", you may lose weight on one of a number of diets, but you will gain it back quickly-why? Because you did not change your beliefs about food.

So.....successful change starts with your belief system.
