What One Thing Would You Change About Your Body?

"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live."
- Jim Rohn
We can often look at successful people like Mariah Carey and Nicole Scherzinger and think they have got everything sorted, but little do we know that many of them have and still suffer from extreme body-image issues.
These issues often stem from underlying beliefs they have that their body isn't as it ought to be. They believe they wont be happy with themselves unless their body looks a certain way, sounds familiar right? We all may have experienced that at times and that's why our perceptions, beliefs and attitudes about ourselves are so crucial as you'll see in the video below...
A lot of people exercise or watch what they eat with the underlying aim of feeling comfortable in their own skin, and that is often to attain the physical appearance that we see on TV and in magazines. However, as the humbling video below shows, real change lies in understanding what our limiting beliefs are about ourselves and then beginning to develop new ones, not just what diet we are on. Changing your perspective of your body is one of the most important things you can do for your health and fitness!
