How to Do What You Never Thought You Could Do

Recently I heard something that really got my attention. “The three most important areas of life are: our thoughts, our words and our actions.”

I know this is true from personal experience. When I was overweight I used this method to help me start losing.

I started thinking more positively about myself. Instead of looking in the mirror and telling myself I was fat, I looked in the mirror and told myself how hot I was going to look after I lost my weight.

Then I started telling everyone about my goal. “I’m going to lose 20 pounds.” I told everyone, my parents, friends, enemies, and even strangers at the gym. Speaking it out loud made it final. Speaking it out loud made it MINE. (Note: I didn’t say, “I want to lose 20 pounds.” I said, “I AM going to lose 20 pounds.” There’s a big difference.

Then of course, I started working toward my goal. There’s something about telling everyone you know about your goal that actually makes you do it. It’s accountability in the worst and best way! So…

Is there something in your life you want to do? Some goal you want to accomplish? Some sin you want to overcome?

  • It all starts with your thoughts. Focusing your thoughts can bring huge changes in your life. Start thinking about what you want to do.
  • Then you speak it. Speak whatever it is to anyone and everyone who will listen.
  • After you’ve done those two things, you take action. Do what you’ve been talking and thinking about doing, and don’t worry about failing.

I know that if you can master those three areas of life nothing can hold you back.

Is there something in your life that you want to accomplish, or change?

Think it, Speak it, Do it!
