Six Failures Followed by a Success at the End
You’ve tried losing weight before and failed miserably. Why try again?
Or, maybe you can’t even count how many times you’ve failed at losing weight. Why in the world would you want to try again? What’s different this time around?
Maybe nothing. Maybe everything, though.
It’s important for folks to know that I had never been successful at losing weight prior to January 2009. I can count six “major” tries at losing weight in my lifetime, all of them abandoned within a week. I had doubt, as I always did, that this time around would actually be the time that I finally succeeded and lost weight.
That doubt is poisonous. You’ve got to get rid of it.
The more you dwell on your past weight loss failures, the more it encourages failure this time around. You have got to believe that this time is your time to shine.
As the saying goes, fake it until you make it.
