Don’t put yourself down!
No-one can give us as hard a time as we can give ourselves. As soon as we decide to do something difficult such as giving up smoking or losing weight, a little voice inside our heads starts to tell us we won’t succeed, it’s too hard, we aren’t strong enough. And that’s before we have even started!
Every person who smugly tells us that it is simply ‘mind over matter’ and ‘down to willpower’ just puts another nail in the coffin. We are already convinced that we will fail before we have begun.
