Standards are built from expectations you have of yourself. The higher the bar, the more positive those behaviors will be. So if you don’t look or feel as good as you think you should, change your mindset and start thinking more positively.
If you are not happy about something, change it! Instead of saying, "I don't have enough energy, and I'm not as toned as I want to be!" your attitude should be, "I can’t wait for my legs to be tight and toned again" or, "it’s only a matter of time until I have strong arms again and can lift things more easily."
Here are a few ways you can work on adopting a more positive attitude: Compliment yourself more often. You may have areas of your body you don't love, but there are things about you that are unique and fantastic and beautiful. Be grateful and remind yourself of the powerful attributes you own.
Believe in yourself, and believe that whatever you want to accomplish can happen. It’s only a matter of time. When you convince yourself that whatever you want to accomplish will happen, it usually does.
