Change the way you view yourself

How you view yourself controls how you treat yourself and your body. If you think of yourself as...

  • Disgusting
  • Weak
  • Worthless
  • Devoid of will power
  • A failure
  • Unworthy
  • A bad person
  • Only human

Then you are setting yourself up for failure. You are guaranteeing that you will treat yourself badly emotionally and physically.

If you think of yourself as...

  • Strong
  • Capable
  • Full of potential
  • Smart
  • Loving
  • A good person
  • Succeeding
  • Proud member of the human species

Then you will start to treat yourself better. When you treat yourself better, your body and mind become stronger and you will be more likely to kick an unhealthy habit and achieve your goals.
