A negative mindset will impair your ability to reach a goal, any goal, like you would not believe. Planning is the expected part, especially when there is visualization involved. You may visualize how and where you would like to be in six months’ time. It may even boost your mood to think deeply about it. Visualization on its own can be mighty powerful. But execution needs to follow. And this is the barrier most struggle to overcome.
It is not that the execution may be painful, but rather the mindset towards it that plays a more significant role.
It is worth repeating a negative mindset will impair your ability to succeed like you would not believe. Quitting a plan is mostly a decision made after analysis or consideration. Not that stopping is inherently a wrong step to take as is often implied. Sometimes it is smart to focus your efforts elsewhere.
But if your goal is to successfully treat Type 2 diabetes and ensure your blood sugar levels are maintained in a healthy range – quitting is never a wise decision. And the reason most people stop trying is due to negativity, which is often self-inflicted.
If you are aiming to treat or manage this disease successfully, you ought to steer clear of any opinion or belief that hurts your ability to focus solely on succeeding. You need a positive approach to treat blood sugar – one that considers only success and acts according to that end. Remember the consequences you risk by not treating the disease successfully. Consider…
- the inconveniences,
- the possible emergencies, and the
- fact you are setting yourself up for a fatal event, like a heart attack.
Upon consideration of these facts, it is evident you need an approach to treat the disease. Why not devote your efforts to making it a positive one? Realize the basics…
- eating well,
- exercising, and
- controlling your body weight
are the most important steps you can take. So do them well. If you commit yourself to these, that is more than 90% of the work you have to do.
Understand this is all part of a commitment to living a better life – that it is much more than just preventing the complications of Type 2 diabetes. Take pride in working to be healthier. Push through the challenges and pitfalls so you can enjoy seeing the progress you are aiming for. Pushing through the challenges is how you have a positive approach.
Don’t dwell on the amount of time it could take, how difficult it can be at times, or the discipline required to stay on track. Do not invite negativity on yourself. If you want to do this badly enough, you will need to hold yourself accountable. Everything else will then fall into place.
Anupam Ghose, a physician by training, was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) in 2017. After the diagnosis of T2DM, he followed a low carbohydrate high fat (ketogenic) diet and reversed his T2DM within a year. Now he is on a mission to educate people and spread awareness about T2DM. Since he could reverse his T2DM following a ketogenic diet, now he is performing extensive research on ketogenic diet and expanding his knowledge on this particular topic. His main goal is to make people understand that the conventional method of treating T2DM is not very helpful and it is possible to reverse T2DM through diet and lifestyle modification.
