Your Mind Believes What You Tell It (Brief)

If you tell yourself negative things about yourself or the world then that’s what you believe, and vice versa.

The mind works through stories.

You are always telling yourself a story about your life.

The key is to reframe reality in a more positive light.

Accept reality, but plan for a positive future

Like this: “I may be overweight now but I am eating healthy and if I keep this up I will be thinner.”

Like my daughter says: Live in the present. It's a journey. Enjoy it while you're here.
