The goal to improving one's life begins internally. By addressing the quality of your mental state—whether fear, doubt, anxiety, depression—you can achieve a positive self-worth and improve your quality of life. It all begins with you!
All of us, at one point in our lives, have wondered if we are able to make the decisions or choices that will turn our lives around. Can I begin that work project I have been putting off? What about the diet that will help me lose weight and get healthy? Can I salvage the marriage that’s ripping at the seams? What do I do after losing my job? The hardest part can be taking that first step toward such a goal, and the fear can be overpowering.
That is the goal of InnerFitness. Former Mr. Universe, Nordine Zouareg, learned that while his outer self was chiseled out of stone, his inner self was crumbling. Rather than giving up, Nordine looked back on his life and actively reflected on the emotions that affected who he had become. From that point forward, his goal was not only to improve the quality of his life, but that of others.
During such self-exploration, he noted five key issues to personal improvement. They are:
- desire to fight
By exposing these five basic issues which hold us back, Nordine shows how to be empowered, have emotional clarity, and consistently choose freedom over fear, success over self-sabotage, confidence over insecurity, and courage over passivity. In essence, retraining your brain from “I’m not enough” to “I’m good enough.”
InnerFitness explains how to manage your inner voice—the one which tells us we’re not good enough, that we cannot succeed. By taking such steps, like celebrating victories (large or small) and seeing failures only as temporary and instructional, you will be on a path to loving yourself for who you are…which is the first step to a happier life.
