Step 1: Believe in the Possibility
Step 1: Believe in the PossibilityOct 30th, 2010 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Coach Nancy - The Way I See It..., Getting to Goal - Success Series
I’m often asked “how did you achieve such an awesome transformation?” I’m flattered when asked of course but I also tend to respond that anyone can do what I did if they try. But that, perhaps, is not what I should say.
You see I believe anyone can do what I did IF they believe in that possibility for themselves. I’m not saying that I encourage anyone to suddenly start spouting affirmations like “I am lean and toned” in the mirror – far from it. What I’m saying is allow the change you are after to be a real possibility in your future.
A real possibility is something you can hit but not guaranteed. A real possibility involves a significant challenge to hit. A real possibility is hard. But a real possibility is not impossible.
For me, I had once been fit.
Despite the fact that I had lost that fitness over a number of years while piling on fat, that memory of what I once was stayed in the back of my mind. Despite the fact that I had been told by medical professionals that my neck injury would require surgery and pain killers for the rest of my life, that ‘future’ never was something I could accept. My future always looked different in my mind.
So when I started out with P90X, that memory that I was once fit was there. I believed I could be fit again even though I wasn’t sure how far I would get. Honestly, I was not entirely convinced that P90X would work for me but I believed in the possibility that it could.
As each of you start with making change in your life, whether it’s getting fit with a great program like P90X or making a change in another area of your life, make sure you believe in the possibility of that successful change first. Then use everything you’ve got to make that possibility your reality.Google+
