For the New You, Focus on Happy
It may sound trite, but it’s useful: If you can find a way to feel good right now, regardless of what you want to accomplish, separate from all that you think you need to change, it will help bring about change, very positive change, in your life.
Assuming you want to improve your health, lose weight, stop eating something or start doing something, the best thing you can do to get on track right now is stop thinking about the problem.
Start focusing on happy thoughts, and I would imagine that the new you – whatever and whoever that is, will make you happy, so think about him/her.
1. Imagine yourself as the person you want to be, doing the things you want to do, looking the way you want to look. If this doesn’t make you happy, then you have been misleading yourself because there is no point to being that person if it isn’t going to make you happy.
So fixate on it, feel it, focus on him/her daily, hourly, constantly. Feel what it will be like to be that person, and if it makes you feel good – then think about it more and more and more.
2. Make a happy list every day. List on a piece of paper all of the things that you are proud of, happy about, grateful for.
You will be inspired to do something if you really do these “workins” consistently. You may spontaneously desire different foods; you may all of a sudden love exercising. You may find a new job, meet someone special, get introduced to someone or something that changes your life to ultimately bring every part of you – physically, mentally and emotionally in line with the happy you.
