We all need to be reminded of this. Sometimes we are our own worst critics.
As a coach sometimes I will hear people say “I’m not very strong” or “I suck at pull ups” or I’m awful at whatever it may be. This sets the wrong tone right off the get go. We have to remember that we ALL have to start somewhere. Even the greatest athletes had to start somewhere. Maybe you can’t lift 200lbs, but I guarantee you can lift more than when you first started. It’s important to keep a positive mind set and remember how far you’ve come! Progress is progress even if it is slow.
Sometimes we look in the mirror and aren’t happy with what we see. We think negatively to ourselves or might even comment something negative about our own bodies.
It’s important to think:
Would you talk to a friend the way you talk to yourself?
I’m sure you wouldn’t tell your friend something hurtful. If you wouldn’t say it to a friend then you shouldn’t say it to yourself.
Staying positive in all aspects of life will make you a happier person. When positivity exudes from you, people can feel it. It can change the environment you’re in and make others feel happy to.
Make it a goal: wake up and tell yourself three positive things and watch how your life changes.
