In my quest to help myself and all of you maximize the time we spend training, I'm constantly searching for ways that will help all of us create behavior change that sticks. My research always seems to come back to the words we use to frame our world and the way we experience it.

The words we tell ourselves are so powerful that they become part of our identity. We call ourselves "fat" or "lazy" or a "failure" or "unreliable" or "slow" so often that we believe it. And, then when we start a self improvement plan... a new eating style, a workout program, preparation for a race that is months away... that voice in our head starts to sabotage our efforts.

In this episode, we talk about setting intentions, the words we use to frame our reality, why willpower doesn't work, how to set ourselves up for success, and some ideas for how to "fake it til you make it." 

At the end, I give you an assignment that will help you take control of your dreams by transforming the way you think about yourself and your goal.
