Ralph Marston says it best: “You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.”
Having been in the fitness industry for over 12 years I am always asked if I actually like working out. When I respond yes, the next question is how in the world could you like working out? I have found it all starts with a mindset. Approaching anything in life with positivity will yield positive results. As a society, we are caught in the rat race with an expectation of immediacy. Instead of focusing so much on the end result, why not enjoy the experience? Set an extremely short term goal. For example: I will enjoy my workout today. I will smile during burpees. I will feel better when I complete my workout. What you believe becomes reality!
Try not to allow frustration to take over. Instead view each task as a challenge that you can overcome knowing that you are becoming stronger, more balanced, more healthy. Look in the mirror each morning and be excited that you have the chance to do anything you set your mind to. You are in complete control of your day!
The next time you find yourself frustrated with whatever life has thrown at you, choose a positive mindset. Go for a walk. Plank on a TRX Suspension Trainer. Register for your first 5K. Know that you are powerful and you can do whatever you set your mind to do!
