While all of this is normal for a hard working athlete like yourself, it's very easy to let your mind get in the way of the body.
If you don't believe me, how many times have you felt so exhausted, tired and sore, struggling to even start a workout and then after the warm-up you feel great and surprise yourself with the energy that you thought you didn't have?
Fear of failure is often the main reason why athletes do not move closer to their goals.
Don't let your mind be an obstacle in your journey.
If you believe in yourself and your abilities, you will succeed.
As a goal-driven, hard-working and dedicated athlete, it’s very easy to lose enjoyment of your sport simply because there are too many self-defeating thoughts and behaviors that weaken great training sessions and strong race-day performances.
You don't have to have perfect to be successful. You just have to give your best effort.
If this post resonates with you, identify why you are letting yourself get into your own way.
If you stay focused, determined and motivated AND find a way to have fun, your goals will become reachable.
Next time you find yourself mentally unfocused or in an uncomfortable situation, don't let your mind get in the way of your body.
