The ones who think they can, and the ones who think they can't are both right

Now I’m not into the law of attraction or any of those other hocus pocus theories.

 

I believe in good ol’ fashioned hard work.

 

Just a lot of positivity thrown in.

 

When people come to the gym, the first thing is start getting their mindset right. So simple things I will look out for, when someone says “if I lose this weight” I always change it to when. Someone may say “I can’t because…” I’ll stop them dead in their tracks and make sure the next thing that comes out their mouth is positive.

 

I believe the way you do anything is the way you do everything.

 

If you start your journey being positive thinking you can achieve anything you want, then you will.

 

The thing people will always say once they come in and hear a trainer being more positive is “oh you’re so positive with everything.”

 

I’m not expecting people to be positive coming in and trying out a new regime or something completely new on their first try.

 

However, this is where health and fitness can have such an amazing impact on the rest of your life. Not only will you have more energy to run around, have a great body that will turn heads, but you will also learn discipline and positivity.

 

Once you become a more positive person your relationships change, your attitude completely changes with it.

 

The great Henry Ford said once “if you think you can do a thing, or you think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”

 

Your positive thinking is a massive debate in the world of quantum physics.

 

In a study about how the universe was created, scientists went back and forth as to whether it was particles or waves. In the end they did a test and found that the guys who believed it was waves the test showed the waves to be right. The ones who thought it was particles, the test proved it was also right.

 

The test almost changed in accordance to what they were truly thinking.

 

While there is no scientific way to prove positive thinking, there are some strong arguments for it.

 

While I don’t believe in the law of attraction, I do believe you attract people from your presence. No one wants to hang around a guy who is always moaning about work, the weather, his job, his wife…

 

You want to be around positive people.

 

But take that into any area of your life. That’s where you will see a difference.
