On the top of my mind today are many things. One of which is WHY some clients really succeed vs. all the others who get mediocre results. The biggest difference is their THANKFULNESS!! The ones who look for, push into acknowledge and are THANKFUL for every little change that they see or feel, they are the ones who get more changes and BIGGER results.
The clients who complain, find excuses and don’t celebrate the small successes….those clients don’t get the results they desire.
Gratefulness, Thankfulness, Positive outlooks lead to RESULTS! Focusing on what you can do, Focusing on those who encourage you, Focusing on the small wins, Focusing on never quitting, Focusing on the blessings that you have, etc… One of my current clients Denise of California, she has had amazing success and has lost over 50 pounds in the past 5 months! I attribute much of her success from her thankfulness. She was thankful from day 1, constantly positive, being grateful for the opportunity that was ahead of her and every day since she’s pushed into being thankful. She’s endured many HARD days along the way. She’s been lonely, upset at the scale, she’s worked through weight loss plateaus but SHE’s Remained Thankful!! That’s the key to her success!
Be thankful for all the little things like:
- Today I woke up without that sludge feeling
- Today I don’t have any allergies
- My headaches have gone away
- I can see some shape in my arms
- I can wear a fun workout outfit now
- I have enough stamina to do a full 30 mins of cardio now
- I can lift 10 pounds more than I did a month ago
- My daughter said I look slimmer
- I am happier and less stressed
This concept of Gratitude and Thankfulness spills over into every area of life. If you are thankful, God wants to give you more! It only makes sense! When my kids say thanks and act truly grateful for the meals I cook , it makes me want to do it more often. If they don’t say thanks, or complain that it’s not their favorite, it makes me regret doing it and makes me limit my cooking.
You are in charge of your attitude about things. Get GRATEFUL, Be THANKFUL!! Always push into what you have and what you can do and what little things you toward the goal. Look for the tiny signs you are heading in the direction you desire and BE blatantly overly thankful and GRATEFUL for them!! Journal about them, Give praise about them, Boast about them, Get excited because you are on the cusp of your goal. God will keep giving you more and more if you are truly thankful!!

Today, I decided that it’s been far too long since I seriously blogged/journaled. I used to every day (see the ARCHIVES) and I became quite a good writer and typist because of it. Now I can’t seem to even type 2 words without errors…sheesh. If you don’t use it you lose it. I am thankful that I can regain that ability, and already after typing this I feel progress!!
