Dieting - The Options - Lose 10 Pounds Easily

by Scott Edwards

When thinking about the changes we'd like to make in our lives, we usually have a picture of what that change looks like. We may visualise great trips away, having a large family home, a luxury car and perhaps a well respected position. It's probable we'll view our figure differently - with less body fat and a more toned physique.

Whiling away such thoughts is useful. Knowing what we want to have is essential to determining how our lives might be. With no destination in mind, we'll get no-where.

However, we have to be prepared to make some changes, prior to having all these brilliant things. As Albert Einstein said, "Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is the definition of insanity." Or put another way, we'll carry on having what we've always had if we carry on doing what we've always done.

We need to not only massively change the way we do things, but also massively change the way we think. Only then will we make big steps forward in what we have. Knowing that there's going to be a deal of exertion to do to get the things we want to have isn't a great revelation. We're familiar with the elementary truth that to get, we first have to give. Interestingly though, the work itself isn't the only criteria for achievement.

We accomplish success by embracing the thoughts and behaviour of a successful person - assuming the characteristics and values of a winner before we've actually become one. So the individual who's goal is to lose 30 pounds in the next 12 months has to become conscientious about nutrition and prioritise a certain amount of time to exercise each week.

The exercise must take priority over fun with friends. Success dictates that reward will follow effort. Slimming with a positive attitude brings results in faster and makes the whole discipline much easier.

Achievement isn't the luck of the draw! We have to build the attitude of an achiever to act as a deterrent against the hits, doubts and criticisms that may be aimed at us.

We can connect with positive achievers by watching films and reading biographies of others who've overcome challenges on their path to success. A common philosophy seems to be apparent each time - their beliefs and attitudes were strong from the start. By concentrating on becoming the person we need to be, the effort we have to do will be more enjoyable and bring us the things we want to have much sooner.
