Stop wishing and start reprogramming

24/01/2010

“In order to change you must be sick and tired of being sick and tired”


Over the years I’ve read thousands of books and attended countless seminars on subjects such as goal setting, success, achievement, happiness…you mention it, I have done it!

I learnt a lot. I mean, I memorised the stuff, but never really put it into practice.

I used to wonder why after so many hours studying, so much knowledge, I wasn’t making things happen in my life.

The truth was, I was not able to achieve anything because back then I thought I wasn’t an “achiever”. I thought certain people are the type of people who accomplish a lot in life, and that I was not that type of person.

To support that belief,  all I was really doing was daydream  now and again about certain things I thought would be nice to have in my life. But I wasn’t doing anything to get those things.

And as my dear mum says: dreaming nice things is great, but only while your asleep.

While awake, you must do more than daydream.

The thing is, deep inside, I used to think that the things I wanted were unattainable for me. That they were ok for other people to have, but that they weren’t really for me.

Part of the excuse why I didn’t take action was my childhood programming. Part of it was pure laziness. I was too comfortable for my own good.

I had learnt that your beliefs about yourself and the world determine your behaviour, and consequently the results you get in life.

But I didn’t really know what this really meant, or how it applied to me.

I didn’t even know that limiting beliefs can be shed, just like snake skin, and that you can adopt new more useful ones, that will allow you to move forward swiftly, and live the life you really want to live.

It was only when I discovered nlp and hypnosis that I learnt how you can do this really quickly.

From personal experience, and from coaching clients, I now know that in order to speed up this process, it helps that  you are really fed up. That you have  just had enough of your present situation. And that change is the only way forward for you.

You have to want something so badly, that the thought of not having it doesn’t even cross your mind.  And if it ever does, it totally and utterly repulses you to the point that you will do anything, whatever it takes, to get what you want.

Think about this for a second…

Most people who seem to naturally lead a healthy lifestyle will tell you things like: ”It’s part of who I am”, “I couldn’t live any other way”, or “There’s no way I’d ever eat that/do that”

This is because when you have made the decision that this is the type of person you really are, you get so much pleasure out of everything it involves, that the thought of not being healthy is just unfathomable.

This is the way I think now. Things that in the past used to be a chore, are now an intrinsic part of my everyday life.

I do them naturally and almost unconsciously, because I reprogrammed my mind so I could be the person I wanted to be.

Making decisions around food are not a struggle, but very quickly and easily made.

I don’t force myself to exercise. I look forward to it.

I am not a slave to the scales. And I don’t waste any time and energy feeling guilty, bad, or focusing on what I don’t like about myself, or what I don’t want.

Because that is not how a truly healthy and fit person behaves.

If you too want to make some big lasting changes, then you have to stop wishing, hoping, daydreaming you were slimmer, healthier, fitter…

You have to believe you already are those things with every single cell in your body, from the very core of your being.

Believe in your mind, and your body will follow.

It’s not about forcing yourself to believe though. It’s about reprogramming your mind so you can become the person you want to be.

Do this and you’ll be  supersonically accelerating the process of looking the way you want to look, and feeling the way you want to feel.

If you want to achieve your goals this year you need to STOP DOING THIS

04/01/2010

If you are making resolutions and you are thinking about all the things you want to stop doing, like…

I have to stop drinking so much, I must give up chocolate, I should stop smoking, I shouldn’t spend that much money, I need to lose weight

Then stop, because it is not going to work for you.

You may have heard the saying “whatever you focus on you get more of”.

This means that if you focus on what you don’t want, you’ll get more of what you don’t want.

So, if for example,  you want to lose weight, and you are thinking things like:

I hate the way I look, I feel so heavy, I look horrible, I have huge thighs, my tummy looks disgusting…

Then you are probably also thinking:

That’s it, I can’t have bread any more, I am not allowed to eat chocolate, I shouldn’t eat pasta, I have to stop eating take aways, no more cake for me…

Then you have to realise that all you are doing is making it even harder for yourself, because you are focusing on all the stuff you don’t want.

If you are spending all your time thinking about all the things you don’t want, can’t have and shouldn’t do, then when are you thinking about what you do want?

Before you can make any changes in your life, you must change your mindset. You must change the way you think.

Otherwise, no matter how much you wish for something, how much you hope it happens, you will not get it.

Your mind doesn not recognize all the don’ts, shouldn’ts, can’ts… you are thinking.

It only recognizes positive commands.

So, when you say things like “I can’t have chocolate”, your mind processes “have chocolate”.

When you say “Don’t eat those fries”, your mind recognizes “eat those fries”.

And then you try and fight that command with will power alone? Pretty much impossible.

Unless you stop focusing on what you don’t want, you are wasting your time and setting yourself up for disappointment.

You must stop cluttering your mind thinking and talking about what you don’t want.

Want to feel great and lose weight? Avoid these foods!

29/12/2009

People tend to think about food in terms of what it does to their bodies, i.e. it makes you fat, it keeps you trim… many don’t stop to think about the effect food has on their minds.

Food can make you full of energy, positive, razor sharp focused, clear minded, motivated, relaxed… or it can make you feel like crap, chronically tired, depressed, anxious, negative…

The following foods are so bad for your mind, and body, that I really can’t see any reason to eat them.

Not only do they have close to zero nutritional value, but they also give your body a nice dose of harmful toxins.

Avoid these at all costs and start to feel boundless energy and zest for life. Not to mention the slimming effects…

MICROWAVE POPCORN

Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid, in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize  and migrate into your popcorn.

In fact, getting rid of your microwave altogether is probably one of the best things you can do to improve your overall health.

WHEAT

Many people buy wheat bread as opposed to white bread because they believe it is more nutritious.

What they don’t know is that wheat is often contaminated with toxins and no matter what the form, wheat, whole wheat, cracked wheat, sprouted wheat… they will all be capable of causing the same problems including: celiac disease, IBS, rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, infertility, and developmental delay in children.

Intolerance to wheat is far more common than doctors typically recognize. The human body hasn’t evolved to digest it. Wheat, and nearly all other grains, convert to sugar in the bloodstream, and rapidly accelerate aging and chronic illness in most people.

Most of us should limit or avoid wheat altogether.

SUGAR

An average doughnut will give you about 200 to 300 calories, mostly from sugar, and few other nutrients.

It will throw off your blood sugar and won’t stay with you so you’ll be hungry again soon.

Apart from the numerous negative physiological effects of sugar, which I won’t mention here, it can cause a rapid rise of adrenaline, hyperactivity, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and crankiness. It can reduce learning capacity, and increase in delta, alpha, and theta brain waves which can alter your mind’s ability to think clearly. It can  also cause depression, increase your risk of Alzheimer’s disease, worsen symptoms of ADHD, and even cause antisocial behaviour.

One can of soda, for example, has about 10 teaspoons of sugar, 150 calories, 30 to 55 mg of caffeine, and is loaded with artificial food colours and sulphites. The diet varieties are also problematic as they are filled with harmful artificial sweeteners like aspartame.

Studies have linked soda drinks to osteoporosis, obesity, tooth decay and heart disease. Plus, drinking all that sugar will likely suppress your appetite for healthy foods, which paves the way for nutrient deficiencies.

If you regularly drink soda, regular or diet, eliminating it from your diet is one of the simplest and most profound health improvements you can make.

FRENCH FRIES & CHIPS

Potatoes are bad enough when consumed in their raw state, as their simple sugars are rapidly converted to glucose that raises insulin levels and can devastate your health. But when they are cooked in trans fat at high temperatures, all sorts of interesting and very unpleasant things occur.

Anything that is fried, even vegetables, has the issue of trans fat and the potent cancer-causing substance acrylamide.

Foods that are fried in vegetable oils like canola, soybean, safflower, corn, and other seed and nut oils are particularly problematic. These polyunsaturated fats easily become rancid when exposed to oxygen and produce large amounts of damaging free radicals in the body.

These oils can cause aging, clotting, inflammation, weight gain and even cancer.

Due to its high saturated fat content, coconut oil is extremely stable and is not damaged by the high temperatures of cooking. This is why coconut oil should be the only oil you use to cook with.

ORANGE JUICE (AND ALL FRUIT JUICE)

Fruit juice has about eight full teaspoons of sugar per eight-ounce glass. This sugar is typically a fruit sugar called fructose, which is every bit as dangerous as regular table sugar since it will also cause a major increase in insulin levels.

Many commercial orange juices are contaminated with mould from damaged fruit that are processed. So if you drink commercial orange juice regularly you will be exposed to these mould toxins.

This doesn’t mean that you should avoid fruit, just fruit juice. When the fruit is intact and whole, its fiber will somewhat moderate the release of fructose into the bloodstream as well as somewhat moderate insulin release.

Avoid  eating these foods and start to notice a surge in energy, mental clarity and a slimmer figure, in as little as 7 days.

If it doesn't grow in a field..

Start feeling great right now and let me know all about it!

Let music lift you up!

25/10/2009

Music has always been a huge part of my life. I believe in the amazing power of music: music can heal a broken heart, it can bring people together, it can make us dance like no one is watching, it can can make us jump like crazy… it can also bring back memories of the best moments of our lives.

When I was little my dad used to play tapes of classical spanish singers on long car journeys. Us kids used to sing in the car until we fell asleep with exhaustion. Later on, at about 10 years of age, I discovered Michael Jackson, and Tina Turner. I was completely in awe of them. Even though I couldn’t speak English at the time, I learnt the lyrics to many songs by writing what I heard down on a piece of paper and memorising it.

At age 16 I joined a heavy metal band as a singer and guitar player. We played concerts and even recorded a demo tape. I loved getting immersed in the music, and for a long time it was my whole life.

In my twenties, as a fitness trainer, there was nothing I enjoyed more than teaching an exercise class to the right music and getting everyone involved and loving it.

Now, I sing mostly in the shower, and my taste in music is infinitely wider. But still, nothing lifts me up like a good tune! And this one by young Tinchy Strider and N’Dubz is of my latest favourites!

Whether I want to get motivated as a coach, for a training session or for a night out, I can always count on music!

What are your favourite tunes and why?
