Are you really who you think you are?

A lot of us think that we are our personality, but our personality isn't as fixed as we might think it is.

My understanding is that while we are born with a certain temperament, many aspects of our personality are just ideas, or beli...

 Two of the most self-defeating responses to change are: 1) “That won’t work because…”, and 2) “I tried that, it didn’t work”.

I coached a client who wanted desperately to get out of her current job.  The work environment was hostile, and this client, Jenny, was making...

A lot of times when I ask a client “What do you really, really want?” they tell me their dream and then follow it with a long list of reasons why it’s not going to happen for them.

For instance:

“I really want to get my Masters degree in nutrition, but it’s just so expen...

A couple of nights ago, I was watching a news story about a particularly awesome 94-year-old man who has been deliberately programming his mind for optimum health and happiness.  You can watch it here.

This guy is not “off his rocker”, he is as sane as can be, and he ha...

I was pretty much oblivious to the idea of having any control over my thinking until I was about 35 years old.  I really just drifted through my twenties.  I was successful at what I did, but I also just did whatever happened to fall into my lap.

I remember sitting in class when I was 15 and thinking about the year 2000.  I...

When I was about 40 years old, I decided to get my Personal Trainer Certification (I was also in graduate school and working full-time…timing, hello?)

BUT I was (and am) super passionate about fitness and healthy living and I really wanted to share that with others.

I remember sitting on my Mom’s lap [seriously] and crying at age 15 both because I had finally gotten my period and I was happy AND because I had finally gotten my period and I was sad.

I was super ambivalent about growing up.  I looked younger than my friends, and alth...

Something I hear *a lot* is some variation on “I’m 45 (or 35 or 55), so I don’t expect my body to look like it did when I was 20.  I know it just gets harder and harder to maintain your weight as you get older.”

Okay, I am all for realistic expectations!  BUT I’m tellin...

Here’s the truth:  If you hold negative beliefs about yourself and your ability to be fit, healthy, and happy, you are sabotaging yourself.  You are literally setting yourself up to experience an outcome that you do not want.

Have you ever heard of the psychological ter...
