When your health unexpectedly takes a turn- for example an autoimmune diagnosis or and injury – there’s a lot of action you can take. You can go to a doctor, take medication, change your diet and much more. You go to work right away managing your body in an effort to get better.
But what often gets overlooked is managing your mind.
In order to stick with all the changes needed to have your health return to normal, you must have the right mindset. When you don’t have the right mindset, changes seem hard and you feel like you can’t stick with anything – even though you know it’s what you need to heal.
Your mindset is what makes or breaks the changes you need to make to get healthy and feel in control of your life again.
Do you feel like you know what to do, but sabotage yourself and don’t get it done?
Do you push yourself too hard and undo any progress you’ve made towards getting better?
Are you successful in your career and other areas of your life, but don’t understand why you can’t be as successful in getting healthy?
I took the same energy and mindset that got me far in life and applied them to my health issues when I was diagnosed with MS. But my “Get it done’ “Put my head down and go” approach that had worked so well in business didn’t work well when it came to healing my MS and losing weight.
Something wasn’t working. Something was off. I wasn’t able to heal my body with the same assertiveness that I used in every other area of my life. When I shifted my mindset, everything clicked into place.
Does this sound familiar?
The good news is you can change your mindset when it comes to your health.
You don’t have to stop excelling in the rest of your life in order to learn how to excel in your health. The even better news is that once you make this shift, you can go beyond normal to getting results in life you thought you were crazy to think about.
Managing your mind is that powerful.
