A Powerful Technique For Being Your Best

Every diet or approach I tried followed the same pattern. There was a list of “bad foods,” things I couldn’t eat, and I’d avoid them like poison. Then there were “good foods,” the stuff I was allowed to eat freely, so I’d fill my fridge and my stomach with those approved items, trusting that as long as I did my part and followed the program, it would work. But it didn’t. It never works.
The pattern was the same every time.

Every night, I would visualize my goal, and then the next day things seemed to fall perfectly into place to help me achieve that goal, just like clockwork. Fast forward two and a half years. I’d reached my ideal weight and ideal body. I write about how to do this in my book, Visualization For Weight Loss.

The first thing is to get your mind into the more powerful, highly programmable state of SMART Mode. All you need is to find imagery that relaxes you simply and relatively quickly.
STEP 2: MAKE AFFIRMATIONS
You can use an affirmation to make any desired change you’d like, whether it’s to change a habit, belief, or food choice; break an addiction; or anything else.
