When I am about to do a workout, I don’t wonder if I will make it. I don’t think, “I can’t do this.” I wont even let my brain believe its hard. I tell myself, “I got this!”. My mindset is positive. At that moment I am indestructible and I just do it. I don’t doubt my strength, my will or my power.
This week I have had to go through almost 20 years of memories. It was hanging on me like a heavy weight. I kept hearing my inside voice saying, “I can’t do this.” I heard myself tell my friend, “I won’t be able to handle it.” Then I remembered that those are just words and I am the owner of them so why am I doubting my strength?
I tackled boxes and boxes of photos and memorabilia with the same mentality that I have when I hit the gym. “I got this!” I didn’t think about whether I would get through it. I just did it. I didn’t wonder what will happen if I came across something painful. I just kept going. The words in my head weren’t powerful enough to stop me from being strong.
We all have a place in our world where we excel with confidence. Yours may not be in the gym but you have it. The next time you are faced with a challenge, tap into the mindset, “I got this!”
And don’t, doubt your strength!
