I love this 🧡 (jacked from @journeytopersonalgreatness - always inspiring!)
I often have to coach my self to stop making up stories in my head about what’s true, what’s possible, and what matters.
Intellectually I know the mind is powerful, but in my human experience the dialogue and conflict between the big and small parts of me is constant and very real.
Sometimes I win those internal debates and sometimes I lose.
I look at my strong idols and think - how could I ever hope to get even close to that?
And then I remind myself - stop hoping, and fucking go after it.
ANYthing is possible, and all we have is time. So stop assuming you’re not as capable, stop telling yourself stories about why something can’t be or why you can’t change or how you’re deficient in some way, and stop worrying about how you look to other people, because nobody’s watching you anyways.
Instead, redirect that mental energy into imagining what winning at the next level feels like, visualizing how you’ll crush that PR, and put in the work that you know creates success. Be open minded that the best case scenario is just as possible as the worst, and that you just might surprise yourself.
Coaching that mental flexibility is probably THE most critical element for me
So I’m gonna take a nap now, and then I’m gonna go to the gym, and doubt my limits HARD
