Positivity is necessary for fitness and for everything else in life
Far from the typical fitness article that we post is what you are about to read. Since Body Spartan lives by our tag line
Lead • Inspire • Motivate
it’s only fitting that we provide a way for you to improve not only your physique…but your frame of mind and ultimately unlock your true potential. How you ask? Through the #PositivityChallenge. Co-founder Priscilla Tuft and I were guests on the Jen Julius Radio show today and we were inspired to change lives.
Here’s my challenge to you:
For the next 7 days, let only positive words come out of your mouth.
The purpose of the #PositivityChallenge
Maya Angelou once said, “Words are things… They get on the walls. They get in your wallpaper. They get in your rugs, in your upholstery, and your clothes, and finally in to you.” Our belief is that no matter what is going on inside your head, if you let words come out of your mouth, they are spoken into existence…and become “things”. Your brain creates a neurological connection to those spoken words and you begin to believe they are true and concrete.
I’ll use my own experiences as an example. There was once a time, in my younger years, when I was quick to judge people. I think at some point, we are all guilty of this. There would be people in the gym doing exercises incorrectly and my friends and I would quietly snicker about it to each other. As I’ve become much older and (I’d like to think) wiser, I have completely changed my thought process. Now when someone gives me the nudge to look at a person doing an exercise incorrectly with the intent of snickering at them, I respond with something positive like, “Hey good for him for getting in here and trying his best. We all started somewhere.”
When I speak those types of phrases and positive words, it shifts not only my own mind set but that of the people around me that are hearing it. Speaking positive words about everything in my life literally causes a shift in my entire way of thinking and I have found that anger, rage, frustration, and stress have been replaced with love, peace, joy, and happiness – and the most important of these is success. Some call it Karma, others call it fate, I call it being in the vortex.
What is the vortex?
The vortex is where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships. If you are unfamiliar with the Law of Attraction, I urge you to read up on it. It’s the key to the success of Body Spartan and all that we have accomplished with changing the lives of those who are a part of our movement. The definition of the Law of Attraction from Wikipedia is:
The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim “like attracts like” which in New Thought philosophy is used to sum up the idea that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life.
Take into consideration that most celebrities and successful people have full realization of and truly believe in the Law of Attraction and the Vortex. Jim Carey, Steve Harvey, and many more discuss the Law of Attraction and manifesting your dreams into reality in the video below:
How can you set your intentions for success if you are plagued with negative thoughts in your head and surrounded by negativity in your life? I’ve found that it’s not possible. I’ve found that I cannot be in the vortex and be on the path to success, whether it be with fitness or business or life in general, if I’m in a negative mindset. In the Law of Attraction, like attracts like. Positive attracts positive and negative attracts negative. It sounds ludicrous to the average person BUT most people that are not average have experienced this.
You are not average.
You were meant for more.
You have the potential and the ability to be limitless.
I challenge you to start manifesting your dreams into reality and start attracting positive things and events in your life by taking the #PositivityChallenge
