269: Are You Using Tools Or Weapons?

Dec 13, 2016

At first glance, this question, “tools or weapons?” doesn’t make much sense.

But, after a conversation with Faith, we recognized that she has the ability to use her choices & her thought as either tools or weapons.

She can beat herself up for a choice, effectively using it as a weapon against herself.

Or, she can learn from that choice and create a more informed strategy for next time, using it as a tool.

She can use her thoughts of guilt, frustration and regret about putting weight back on as a weapon against herself or she can use them as a tool to empower & encourage her.

So – your thoughts and your choices – are you using them as weapons or tools?

There’s so much other great stuff in this episode including thoughts on:

  • Are you making this too hard?
  • Faith’s advice to anyone who is struggling to get started
  • The value in the struggle might be greater than the struggle in the success
  • How to become more mindful of your choices

This is a value-packed episode! Don’t miss it!

Are You Using Your Thoughts & Choices As Weapons Or Tools?

Here are some of the highlights from today’s episode:

  • Is that thought or behavior a weapon or a tool?
  • It’s not as hard as you’re making it
  • There is likely more value in your struggles and setbacks than you’ll ever find in your success – look for the lessons!
  • Why you should let go of “good food” “bad food” associations
  • Why you’re probably not as “all or nothing” as you think you are (and tell yourself you are)

Final words from Faith:

Do the next thing that makes you feel better. Then do the next little thing & keep doing it until you don’t feel so bad anymore.
