Focus on Wins

Episode 286: How To Find And Focus On Wins Every Day

By Cookie Rosenblum

So today we are continuing our discussion from Episode 285, of why we tend to focus on the negative, why we should focus on the positive, and how to do it. Because this is something we all need to hear. When you aren’t at your goal yet, and I ask what you might be thinking about how you are doing, you might say: • I’m not doing anything right! This is not true. • It’s just a perspective that your brain leans toward, like taking the same streets to work every day, you go that way automatically. • You might […]

Episode 285: Stop Focusing On What’s Wrong, And Start Focusing On What’s Right

By Cookie Rosenblum

Do you do this? Someone gives you a complement and you deflect, saying: yes I did do that well, but look at this other thing I did. You shrug off the good things you do and focus all the time on what you didn’t do or what you didn’t do well You make light of the good things and you shine a bright light on things that are not going well. You constantly think about what isn’t going well. What you did wrong. Any misstep you made. You pretty much ignore anything you did that was right, went well or […]

Episode 284: Are You Bored with Thinking About Food?

By Cookie Rosenblum

You might be taking breaks from your Project You because you’re telling yourself you’re tired of thinking about the whole subject. Or you are bored with the subject of weight and food and eating. Some signs of boredom you might be experiencing: believing that thinking about food will lead you to overeat, tired of planning what you will eat, tired of thinking about the fact that you need to eat several times during the day, tired of the whole subject, thinking you’ve been working on this long enough and if you don’t have the results you want, and you want […]

Stop Avoiding Failure

Episode 283: Want Weight Loss? Stop Avoiding Failure!

By Cookie Rosenblum

When you’re trying to stop overeating, do you hold on tight and think you should avoid failing at any cost? If this is what you’ve tried in the past, you probably know by now that it doesn’t work, and it’s certainly not sustainable. Yet most of us think our goal in life is to do anything to avoid failing. When we learn anything that’s new to us and our brains, we need to know that failing is a part of learning. The big mistake you make when you fail is not the mistake itself. It is your assumption that failing […]
