How you feel plays such a huge part in your weight loss journey.
Your emotions can propel you to new heights. When you feel amazing, it feels like there’s nothing in the world that can stop you.
But your emotions can also drag you down.
They can take you to lows that feel almost impossible to recover from. That’s when addiction, whether it’s booze or food or whatever, rears its ugly head again.
I want to talk to you about getting control of your emotions.
I want to talk about tapping into those good feelings that push you forward.
This is something that the great Tony Robbins calls "state management" and it’s such a powerful tool.
It’s all about learning how to access the emotion that you need at a certain time to create a certain outcome.
I’ll be honest.
I’ve been terrible at this in the past.
But the irony is that this is what makes me a good coach. I’ve had to learn all of these techniques over the years just to get myself right.
And that means I know they work. I’m living proof.
Now this technique is as relevant in the office as it is in the kitchen. I use these techniques to tap into and access that emotion that’s going to stop me from eating that ice cream or whatever it is.
Here’s what you do.
First, close. Clear your mind of anything that’s floating around in there.
Now visualise yourself up on stage at the TJM conference. You’ve hit your goal weight and you’re about to collect your award.
You walk out on stage and the crowd roars for you. They’re amazed at how good you look, how much you’ve achieved, because you stuck at it.
I want you to really feel it.
Then, open your eyes.
How good do you feel right now? That’s the positive emotion that’s going to help you keep pushing.
It’s going to keep you away from the snacks and the comfort food because you can make what you visualised happen.
I believe in you.
