Why do we beat ourselves up?

Leading performance psychologist and Chairman of the Human Performance Institute Dr. Jim Loehr said:

"Your mindset puts a lid on what you can achieve, because your body hears everything your mind says and acts accordingly."

If you go to a restaurant, you wouldn't order your least favourite dish, would you?

Yet when it comes to our thinking, we humans have a habit of choosing the most unsavoury thought patterns that don't support what we want to achieve.

If beating ourselves up worked, we would all have a six-pack, a fat wallet and a permanent grin.

When we align our thinking to our vision, move our mental cursor to what we want, and stay on the right page, the universe has a habit of falling into line and producing unlimited quantities of success.

Thoughts can be like X-rays; choose the right ones and they'll go through anything.

Think positive, speak positive, you will do positive.
