Negative beliefs are like a virus, working away behind the scenes and steering our decisions without us even realizing it. So many times we hear women saying, “I can never look like that”, or “that body is unrealistic”. Even in comments on athletes’ social media pages. When you see a photo of an amazing body, it’s real, it’s not a painting! That person exists, so by definition, the body is realistic.
The problem is, negative beliefs put a limit on what we can achieve. So what someone is really saying when they make statements like these is, “my beliefs won’t allow me to achieve a body like that”, because you can’t achieve something until you believe it.
Today Gloria was chatting with a Bombshell who is 44 years old, has lost 95lb, and is preparing to compete on stage this year. Is that realistic? You bet it is, because she believes it!
The best beliefs are those that accept the unrealistic as possible. That’s when amazing things happen, barriers are broken, and limits vanish. Everything is unrealistic at one time, until someone does it. From now on, don’t be realistic, be limitless!
