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

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.

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 […]Continue Reading

Today I’m going to help you understand why you worry so much, why worry leads you to overeat, and how to fix this habit. Come and join me in this coaching session. Are you a worrier? You’ll know if you are! Worry is a negative emotion, and it doesn’t just come upon you. It comes from a negative thought that you have created in your own mind.

Be honest. With so many different diets out there and so many plans to choose from, don’t you sometimes wish someone would just give you exact advice about what to eat?
