You’ve undoubtedly heard the phrase, “You are what you eat.” Most of us agree with the sentiment, and some of us put into practice healthy eating habits. But it’s not just our stomachs that need a well-balanced diet – our minds do too.
Muhammad Ali – the world’s undefeated, legendary boxing champion – spoke to the importance of a positive mindset. “It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen,” he said. Ali, (coupled with his natural athletic abilities), THOUGHT his way to success in the boxing ring. He lacked the muscle of his opponents. He lacked the stature of his opponents. Yet he outweighed them all with the strength of his transformative mindset.
Our mental diet consists of:
- Things we watch
- Things we listen to
- Things we read
- With whom we spend our time.
Life Tip #1: A steady diet of junk food will have unhealthy consequences for both our bodies AND our minds. Eat and think HEALTHY!
