“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he” – Proverbs 23:7
Your mental images manifest in your physical world. Here are some questions you need to ask yourself:
1. How can you become lean, fit and healthy if all you think about is gaining weight and eating your favorite unhealthy food?
2. How can you possibly be successful if all you think about is failing or losing?
3. How can you possibly make more money if you focus on being in debt?
4. How can you possibly get a better job if your energy is spent thinking about how much you hate your current one?
“When I was obese, most of my mental brain energy was spent thinking about food. I would read those women’s magazines that had food advertisements in the first 20 pages. I would stand in line at the supermarket waiting to buy my high-fat, sugar-loaded items and salivate over the artistically designed foods in those beautiful gourmet magazines. When I watched television, I would sit completely still during every food commercial drooling all the while my mind was ingesting the images.
I became what I ingested, thought about and studied. I became a storehouse of excessive calories. I became what I thought about… fat! If I was ever to experience a change, I had to change.”
