Is it just me or, at times it seems harder to convince
our minds to get a “Move On” that it is for our bodies
to feel ready and up to it.
I noticed on my last visit to the gym that my mind
tried all the way through my work out to convince me
with many rather creative arguments that we should
just pack it up and go back home.
I am telling you all that I have long tiring arguments
about religion, politics and history and never have I
encountered a more determined adversary than
my own mind.
Quite a learning experience and I used a technique
an old trainer of mine thought me back in Mexico when
I was into competitive weight lifting.
He said “Win one battle at a time., first get up then
get out after that just get to the gym., Then is when it
will get interesting he said. One routine after another
and then and only then when you are done you can agree
with your reluctant mind and go home.
Never forget that every battle counts and you should fight
to the end and never ever give up because also, every
time you loose the battle it counts., it counts against you.
Nothing but winners here so gang let’s keep on keeping on.
Also if you think yourself a winner or a fighter go find
the podcast “every day is Saturday” by my very good
friend Sam Crowley. Very good and inspiring stuff.
