Are you a fit person? Are you a person who thinks you are awkward and physically challenged?
What internal messages to you give yourself every time you try something new that is physical? What messages can you give yourself to support the pattern of being a physically fit person?
For any physical activity or skill, your mind is in charge of your body. It makes sense. First if you start a walking program, your mind has to make the decision to start the activity. Then it is your mind that places that activity on your schedule and reminds you to get moving.
When something is very important your mind will focus on it and give you positive reinforcements that this is what I want and need to be doing.
To be successful with any fitness activity you have to believe that you have the ability and resources to accomplish the activity. If you first believe you can be an active fit person you will be successful in getting there.
Now your actions need to follow that belief by setting up a realistic schedule for starting and staying on a fitness program.
For starting a walking program you need to commit to walking everyday for a specific amount of time. The biggest mistake I think people make is setting up impossible goals for the first week, then quitting because they didn’t make those goals.
For your success, take one action every day. Be consistent with that action. Pay attention to the small results and how you feel about accomplishing that one thing every day.
Give your self credit every day for the one thing you did to more you towards better health. Then repeat that action again tomorrow and build on it.
Become the fit person you want to be, one day at a time.
Keep moving and have fun with it.
