How Your Thinking And Your Attitude Shape Your Reality

What you think you become. Truer words have never been spoken. What you think is so important to building and living the quality life that you want.

If you always think I can’t do this or I am stupid then you are right. You can’t do it and you are stupid. You make that your reality. But if you change your thinking, your will change your reality and you will be able to do anything.

Believe in yourself! Encourage yourself! You have to understand that your thoughts shape your reality and if you think negative then you will get negative, but if you think positive then you will get positive.

If you want the life you have always dreamed of you need to change your thinking because if you stick with your old ways of thinking and your old attitude then you will get what you have always gotten.

Change your thinking and it will change your life. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer said it so well. I highly encourage you to listen to his work and read his books.

The Sad Truth Exposed on Catfish the TV Show

It’s a sad reality that today people feel so badly about themselves that they hide away and live their lives as someone else on the internet. And they go online and Catfish others. Instead of learning to love themselves and accept themselves as they are and working on changing their lives to be happier they prefer to just pretend to be someone else. They believe that this is the only way they can get love. This is so sad and simply not true.

You need to love yourself first! When you truly love yourself you will transform your whole life! When I watch MTV’S Catfish I am always blown away by the pain, sadness and loneliness that everyone on that show seems to be living in. It’s no secret that being plus sized in a society where anything above a size 6 is considered fat is no picnic but you’ve got to rise above that! This is the life you have. It’s not a trial run, you get one shot at it so go out there and really live it! Don’t go online and catfish people. Be yourself, love yourself and live your life!

Wentworth Miller Fat Shaming. Enough Is Enough!

Wentworth Miller fat shaming – again.

Today Wentworth Miller became an Internet meme due to an old photo from 2010 in which he had gained weight after his days as Michael Scofield on Fox’s Prison Break were over. His response to this most recent attack on his person was both beautiful and sad as he talks about the painful time in his past and how he overcame it.

Wentworth Miller is a class act, handling the situation with such grace you want to applaud him. He also uses the situation to urge people who are struggling with depression to get help. I myself had lived with depression for many years and also sought solace in food. It got so bad that I weighed nearly 400 pounds. I got help and learned to love myself and turned my life around. Although this attack is senseless and cruel I love how Wentworth Miller handled it and hopefully he inspires people suffering in silence to get help.

Shame on you body shamers of the world. And Wentworth Miller, thank you for speaking up for those who need it the most.

One of the Most Important Things You Need to do to Lose Weight!

Michelle Sigouin Weight Loss JourneyOf all the changes that I have made in my life, the one that people are interested in the most, is my weight loss. Maybe because it’s the most visible (to the eye), change I’ve made in my life. Maybe because everybody wants to lose weight. I don’t know, all I know is that everyone wants to know the secret to my success.

They want to know what I eat, which diet I follow, how many calories I eat.They want to know if I go to the gym, what exercise program I follow etc… And they are dumb founded when I point to my head and say “The most important thing I did was I changed what’s going on up here” and that’s why I’ve been able to lose weight but most importantly it’s why I’ve kept it off!

You see, excess weight is not the problem, it is the symptom of the problem. Let me put it this way – you eat too much bad food and you don’t exercise. So most people think, ok, to solve this, I need to eat less, eat better and move more. Problem solved.

Not really. That’s really a band-aid solution, because you are not going to the root of the issue. The real problem isn’t that you eat too much, it’s why you eat too much. The problem is what’s going on in your mind. It’s the beliefs that you hold, it’s the thoughts that you have, in short, it’s the conditioning of your mind.

You have behaved in this way for so long, that it is now your normal operating procedure and if you want to change the results you are getting in your life, you need to change the ingrained behaviors you have. You don’t do this by depriving yourself of food for a short while of time, you reprogram your mind to think a certain way and then you will act in a certain way and then your results and your life will change.

Work on yourself and you will change your entire life. Once you tackle your mind and start to reprogram your long held limiting beliefs you will no longer continue the same behaviors that led to you gaining weight. Then you can explore new healthy avenues to lose weight and you will see amazing changes in yourself. And not only will you start to lose weight, but you will keep it off. No more yo-yo dieting and starving yourself, you will lose the weight and keep it off forever!

If you are ready to change your life and lose weight then these are the tools that you need to do that.

Read the following books :

Louise Hay – You Can Heal Your Life

Wayne Dyer – Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life,

Tony Robbins – Awaken The Giant Within

Go to YouTube and watch seminars and videos by Louise Hay, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and Tony Robbins

Start to work on yourself. Follow the exercises and programs they talk about and really apply yourself and you will never be the same person again. You will lose more than weight, you will lose the thoughts and beliefs that have been holding you back in life.

You can do it!

The Sad Truth Exposed on Catfish the TV Show

The sad truth exposed on Catfish the TV Show

For those of you who don’t know what a catfish is. A catfish is someone who pretends to be someone else online by using false information, usually to pursue a romantic relationship.

On MTV’s Catfish the TV Show, the hosts, Nev and Max help people who have met someone online discover the truth about them and bring them together.  For the most part the people they are helping are being catfished and the person they thought they were in a relationship with are not who they said they were.

For the most part, the person doing the catfishing was not trying to be malicious, they were simply looking for love and they felt that they could only do that if they were someone else. This sad truth jumps out at me with every episode that I watch. Pretty much every catfish on the show has no self-esteem, no self-love and no self worth. They don’t like themselves, and they don’t believe that they, as themselves, are worthy of love and so they pretend to be someone else and go looking for love,

I find it really sad that so many people think so little of themselves. But it’s even sadder that instead of working on themselves and learning to love themselves, they choose to escape their reality online and in the process hurt other people. It’s become so common that the term catfish has been added to the dictionary! It’s crazy!

Sadly, most of the catfish on the show are overweight women and this really hits home for me because having been an overweight woman my entire life and having suffered from low self-esteem for the better part of 28 years I completely understood the pain and emptiness these women feel. I’ve even been in an abusive relationship because I didn’t love myself enough to get out.

I wish that these women would learn what I finally learned, that no amount of love from another person will fill that hole in your heart. You need to love yourself before you can ever hope to have the love of someone else. Love from another cannot make you whole and if you don’t learn to love yourself, you will never be happy and you will never experience real love.

Loving yourself is the most important thing that you will EVER do! It is the best gift that you will ever receive. Loving yourself will change your life. You will be happier, stronger and more confident and you will attract people to you with your energy and your whole life will start to change. Loving yourself is the first step towards leading an amazing life. You won’t need to go online to escape your real world because your new world will be better and more amazing than any online world could ever be.

If people started learning to love themselves they would find that what they were looking for online all this time was inside them the whole time.
