Believe it or not, we all tend to live our lives with voiceovers. That’s right – we all hear an internal voice (in a non-crazy way) that plays again and again in a loop. These voiceovers, also known as “self-talk”, can either push us to greater and greater accomplishments, or they can hold us back and make us fearful, or make us feel bad about ourselves.
If you ask highly successful people, they will tell you that their internal monologues empower them and push them to achieve higher and higher levels of success. That’s why it’s important to modify your internal monologue with some of the best weight loss motivational quotes. Let’s discuss why they work, and which motivational quotes will serve you best.
Choose Empowering Self-Talk
The good news is that we can choose what we tell ourselves. As much as many people would rather not believe it, many of the negative results they experience in their lives are at least partially due to the internal statements they keep repeating to themselves.
For example, saying to yourself ‘I can’t afford it’ only serves to ensure that you will actually not be able to afford much. Saying to yourself, ‘I am a loser’ will only push you further down to a downward spiral of self-doubt, low energy, indecision, bad decisions, and even more self doubt.
If you want to break the downward motivational cycle you find yourself in when trying to lose weight, make more money, move forward in your business, or working through challenges in your relationships, you need to repeat more positive internal dialogues. Internalize the following motivational quotes, and see yourself reach higher heights of accomplishment in all aspects of your life.
Weight Loss Inspirational Sayings
‘I Am Who I choose To Be’
This is a great quote for people looking to lose weight because it emphasizes the power of choice. You are overweight because you chose certain priorities – you chose a certain lifestyle. It doesn’t pass the blame. Once you appreciate this and once you believe it, you can choose certain actions that will help you lose weight.
You can choose to live a more active lifestyle. You can choose to consult with your doctor about health issues or medications that might be impacting your weight gain. You can choose to eat less. You can choose to feel better about yourself so you don’t drown out your low self-esteem with food.
The key is realizing and acknowledging that you have the ability to choose. This in itself is a form of taking action. You position yourself to taking the positive actions that can make your weight loss efforts successful.
‘My Outer World is a Reflection of My Inner World’
When you repeat this quote, you zero in on a very important principle: you can control your outer world and your actions in your outer world based on how you control your thoughts. This is powerful because you stop empowering things that you have no control over.
For example, you have no control about what other people think, but you can control how you think. By repeating this quote over and over, you can put yourself in a position where you can choose to think empowering thoughts that lead you to take empowering actions. These actions enable you to not just slim your waistline, but feel more in control of your life in general.
The truth is that you are in control of your life. You are always in control. By taking full control over your decisions, you can start making choices that can lead to a slimmer you, and this can lead to even stronger feelings of being in control which leads to even more positive action. Get on an upward spiral instead of a downward spiral of feeling sorry for yourself, feeling you’re not in control, and feeling trapped by other people’s expectations.
