Freedoms vs Limitations

Negative self-talk...

It's probably the largest component to this whole "healthier me" journey but we don't spend nearly enough time on it. 

As humans, we tend to focus on what our limitations are. 

Even before we talk fitness...

Think about all the limitations we put on ourselves. 

I can only grow a certain amount professionally. 

I can only grow a certain amount financially. 

I'm limited to only doing these things. 

In fitness, we are constantly thinking about the limitations within us. 

We tend to focus on what we can't do. 

We can't lose the weight we want to....

We can't do that push-up we want to do...

We have a limited capacity, schedule, support, etc. 

All of these are, usually, justified. 

The problem, however, is that causes a negative mindset and puts limits on us. 

Why don't we instead focus on the freedoms we have?

What can we control?

What can we do?

Focus on the choices we can make. 

We can choose to wake up 15 minutes early before the kids get up to do some meditation...

We can choose to say no to that table of office goodies and instead say yes to the lunch that you packed...

We can choose to sneak in a workout or two each week...

We can choose to give it our best every day...

We can choose to think of each day as it only being a good day or great day. 

This happens when we focus on our freedoms. 

Negative self-talk is a large and complex topic. 

However, it starts with focusing on the things we can control, the things that we can change, the freedoms we have. 

Choose to focus on your freedoms over your limitations. 

I'll be back on Monday to fire up the week again. 

1% Better.
