Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Ian Wilson.

I’m a big believer in positive thinking, but positive thinking is not enough. You can’t just “think” that you will have a better body, you have to reflect back to where the problem started.

Here’s what I mean…

Visualize in your mind “how” your body came to be what it is now. Perhaps one day you started drinking a lot of soda and eating chips. Maybe you switched from eating a lot of chicken and broccoli to eating mostly pasta. You also may have cancelled your gym membership. Did your parents give you poor eating habits? Did your friends have anything to do with it?

In your mind, re-trace all the steps in detail, including the actions you took and your words/thoughts. Think about your external environment and people, places and things.

When you do this, it helps you fix the problem by taking action…the correct action. Hope and a positive mindset are helpful, but you shouldn’t solely rely on them…you also need to reflect and problem-solve on your own. Reflection will help you get the positive results you want.
