TELL THAT MEAN VOICE IN YOUR HEAD TO SHUT UP!
Ok so we ALL have it! That little voice inside of your head saying nasty things about you…. how you’re wrong, you’re not doing this right, you should be feeling really guilty about this, I’m not a good parent, I mess everything up, I fail at anything I try to do, this will never work, I COULD GO ON AND ON!
I have struggled for years to tell that bitch in my head to shut up, that I am in control, I AM gonna do this and do it well, I AM good enough, I LEARNED from my failures, I’m gonna fail again and that’s OK, I am going to continue to learn and grow. So stop apologizing when you’ve done nothing wrong. Stop beating yourself up about things you’ve done in the past. STOP IT! Every time that little voice says something, take charge, turn it around and say, “I am a child of God. I am worthy of good things happening to me. I’m going to be positive today and good to myself today and honor myself TODAY!”
So many clients of mine berate themselves when they get tired and need a break from a work out. It’s ok to have a tough day. It’s ok to have a crappy workout. The only thing you should tell yourself is “I tried, and I am going to try even harder the next time.”
SO…. lesson/goal for the day and for the weeks to come: I am going to be KIND to myself today. I am going to be POSITIVE. I am going to do my best, and that is ALWAYS good enough.
I’m rooting you on!
