Have you thought of the difference between saying I have to versus I choose to? Like, say you are thinking you want to live healthy and fit this week and you go out to lunch with some co-workers, do you say I have to eat this or that or do you say I am choosing to eat this or that today?
Hmmm there is a HUGE difference in the two statements.
Thinking that when we say I HAVE TO we are working from the willpower mindset which as Coach Abel states is a self-weakening and self-depleting mindset. Instead we can approach our choices as just that OUR CHOICES and then we are working from an "I CHOOSE TO" mindset which comes from the power we have within us, our self-discipline and character.
Today as you are going about your day I want you to pay attention to where your mindset is. What are you saying to yourself? Is it 'I HAVE TO' do this or that or is it 'I CHOOSE TO' do this or that?
Then you can decide if you are working from a willpower or self-depleting, external power source or from self-discipline and self-control where you are working from an internal and self-sustaining energy source.]
It is YOUR CHOICE - I have to versus I choose to.
