Mental Images - What You
Think is What You'll GetBy Victoria Johnson,
Global Health & Fitness Motivational
Your mental images
manifest in your physical world. Here are some questions you need to ask
1. How can you become
lean, fit and healthy if all you think about is gaining weight and eating your
favorite unhealthy food?
2. How can you
possibly be successful if all you think about is failing or losing?
3. How can you
possibly make more money if you focus on being in debt?
4. How can you
possibly get a better job if your energy is spent thinking about how much you
hate your current one?
"As a man thinketh in
his heart, so is he" - Proverbs 23:7
When I was obese, most
of my mental brain energy was spent thinking about food. I would read those
women's magazines that had food advertisements in the first 20 pages. I would
stand in line at the supermarket waiting to buy my high-fat, sugar-loaded items
and salivate over the artistically designed foods in those beautiful gourmet
magazines. When I watched television, I would sit completely still during every
food commercial drooling all the while my mind was ingesting the images.
I became what I
ingested, thought about and studied. I became a storehouse of excessive
calories. I became what I thought about... fat! If I was ever to experience a
change, I had to change. I had to methodically change:
My Mental Fuel (Fuel
is energy) what you give energy to grows!
My Mental Images (instant brief
snap shots of yourself)
My Thoughts (meditations of images)
Pictures (complete life like scenes of yourself)
My Choices (decisions) and
ultimately My Actions (every physical movement)
You see, in life,
everything counts. Therefore you must count everything.
Sow a thought, reap an
Reap an action, sow a habit...
Sow that habit, reap a
You are where you are,
right now at this moment, because of your consistent thoughts, images, and
actions, which is the composite of your habits.
From this day forward,
if you want to change your future, you must change your Mental Fuel.
In order to achieve
your ideal body, your ideal state of thinking, your optimum level of health and
performance in all areas of your life you must change your mental diet. You
must get rid of all negative, self defeating and destructive material,
conversations, unnecessary relationships, images in your home and
thoughts with empowering images by changing what you read, what you watch on TV
and the Internet. Change the music you listen to. If you're depressed and you
want to get to a higher more invigorating state, don't listen to sad "poor me"
drippy songs. Put on some high energy moving and grooving music. Put on what I
call great memory music. You know, the music you played when everything in your
life was awesome. Let your mind take you back there to that place. Soon you
will feel powerful again.
"esreveR" your order
of thinking. (Reverse Type)
You do this by asking
yourself empowering questions. You are a unique individual. You have your own
picture of success. If you don't... GET ONE!

Never look back at
your past mistakes. That's why they call it the past! You know what didn't
work, you know where your strength is. Call upon it. Develop your own success
program. Each of us have our own ideal image of success!
Start now. Go out a
buy a magazine that reflect your destiny and only look in that direction.
Forget your past, believe me, everyone is tired of hearing about it. Look to
your future see your reaching, see your journey. We are all on a journey
through this life... Maybe we will meet along the way. I hope I see you at the
