Can 68 Seconds of Pure Thought Create Extraordinary Fitness Results?
Have you ever fallen off the wagon? You've made a commitment and absolutely did great for awhile and then all of a sudden it was gone! The motivation stopped and you did not continue with it.
Last year I was going to the gym and I was consistent, consistent, consistent. Every day the first thing I did was get up in the morning, put on my shoes, my gym outfit and off I would go. And I remember thinking, "This is so good. I will never be that way again!" Thinking about the way I was before I started because I was starting to get really good results. And then all of a sudden I stopped; a day here, a day there and all of a sudden it stretched out. I made excuses, you know, it's too cold, too dark, it's this, it's that.
Today I was thinking about why that happened and I believe what it was, was that I lost the vision. Because when I went to the gym, I wasn't going there to lift weights and run on the treadmill. That part didn't excite me. What really excited me was the thought, and it sounds really silly, it was the thought of walking along a Mediterranean beach in a really smoking bikini and I was getting amazing results. When I lost touch with the dream, I lost touch with the motivation to continue.
There are a number of different things in my life that I am working on right now. Part of it is the 68 seconds of pure thought that Abraham Hicks talks about. The Law of Attraction says that if you think of something often enough and you generate pure focused thought with the emotion that you feel when you feel really good about something, that will carry you forward and also help to attract those things into your life. So I decided, I am going to give this a shot again, partly because of my trip to the Camino de Santiago next year. I want to be in really good shape just from a fitness and health perspective.
I am going to focus and get back at the gym on a very, very consistent basis because it has been a little haphazard in the last week or so. So join me on my blog. I'd love to have you follow along with my progress.
