Read this quote on manbicep.com this morning and had to share it.
A new member started coming to my classes after the New Year. She was going hard core and coming at 5:15am. We all welcomed her. She told us that she is usually good for 2 weeks and then she quits. "Well you won't do that this time", we told her...we encouraged her every morning. What I wish I had said was this:
"You must change your thoughts. You have already allowed yourself to quit after 2 weeks. If you want to change that cycle you must change your thoughts...create a new mantra. You don't have to quit after 2 weeks."
Sure enough we didn't see her again after those 2 weeks. I bet she loved the way she felt when she was working out. I bet she hates seeing her bank account each month when $40 is deducted for the gym membership. I bet she wishes she was still coming.
I have moments when I want to quit. I struggle to get out of bed some mornings. My mantra is "I can do this". When the "i can't" messages start flooding my mind I replace them with "I Can Do This".
And you can do it too. Write down all the negative phrases that are keeping you from your goals/dreams and replace them with phrases that will push you forward. Thoughts lead to action....let's make sure we are going in the right direction.
