I love this quote! It reminds me that no matter how hard I work or how many great ideas I come up with, without the right mindset I will never accomplish anything.
If I expect myself to succeed than I will succeed. Whether it be dieting or exercising or strengthening my relationships, I first have to think those oh so powerful thoughts that tell me to put int he work because I expect to reap the benefits from all that I have sown.
I have been working really hard on my body lately. I have gone through stents of changing my habits before but I never found any lasting success. I realize that it is because what I expected was unrealistic. I have noticed changes in my physical body this time. Even though it has been less than four weeks and I don't see the pounds melting away, I feel better. I have more energy, I am stronger and my stamina has improved. The most important thing is that I haven't given up. In the past I would have given up after a week without seeing the scale move in the right direction. Now I am fueled by my thoughts. I am armed with fact that I expect to see the results in time. I will be even more excited and proud of myself for being patient and putting in the work and discipline necessary to transform my body.
Having the right mindset is often the difference between failure and success.
