You start the diet or exercise program and already believe it’s not going to work for you, so you don’t put in the level of effort necessary to actually make a change.
I can tell you from experience that this limiting belief is not true. Yes everyone is dealt a different hand, but no matter what hand you were dealt you can improve it.
You can work on it. You can make yourself way better than someone else that was dealt a better hand just by continuously putting yourself in an environment that will help you grow in the direction you want.
Holding the nurture mindset is much more helpful for weight loss. And this is applicable far more than just in the area of fitness.
The last thing I want to do is give you an exercise to help you break these limiting beliefs that are holding you back.
Take a piece of paper out and write down all of your beliefs that take power and control out of your hands.
“I’m predisposed to obesity” “I”m not athletic” “I have a weak upper body” and whatever else comes to mind.
Then write down the consequence for having such a belief. And the last step is to dispute it with a more objective and empowering belief.
A full example would be to start with the limiting belief that I have bad genetics and will always be fat.
The consequence of accepting such a belief is that I will feel guilty and doomed that nothing will help, and this could make me live out the rest of my life unhealthy and unhappy with my body.
Then the objective truth is that anyone can get in shape. There are people worse off than me who have made complete transformations. There’s no excuse.
