What is your mind telling you?

We all have an internal self talk. What’s important is whether that self talk is negative or positive.

Internal self talk is probably the biggest obstacle for most people when pursuing their goals. Any goal that is, not necessarily just health and fitness.

Often, our struggle is because our own mind is getting in our way. If we have a lot of negative self talk, that keeps us where we are and it’s hard to move forward.

Things like: 

  • I’m not that type of person.
  • I wasn’t born with good genetics.
  • Everyone else is better than me.
  • It’s going to be too hard.
  • I’m not going to be any good at it.
  • What if I fail.
  • I’ve never succeeded before, why would I this time.
  • I’ll never succeed.

The list can go on and on.

These thoughts end up being the reason we fail.

They stop us dead in our tracks. They prevent us from even starting. They allow us to give up when things get hard.

It’s probably obvious that the alternative is what we need.

The alternative is positive self talk and this can help inspire and motivate us.

For example:

  • It may not be perfect, but I’ll get it done.
  • It won’t be easy, but nothing worthwhile is easy.
  • I work hard for what I want.
  • I too can have a rocking beach body!
  • It may not be fast, but I’ll get there.
  • Progress not perfection.
  • I deserve to be successful

These thoughts set us up for success. These thoughts accept struggle and help us keep going. These thoughts help us overcome difficult times and keep pushing for our goal.
