World Class Bodybuilding Success Tip:
Most of us know what to do when we get stuck physically. We take time off from the gym, change up the routine, get a new training partner or add more calories to our diet. But what happens when we get stuck mentally? By that, I mean we sometimes get stuck in the thought process that in order to get ripped we need to lighten the weight, use more machines and abandoned the heavy free weights. Our minds tell us “Hey, lighten up, you don’t want to hurt yourself. You’re eating less calories, doing more cardio – take it easy.”
But remember, where the mind goes, so does the body. When the going gets rough, the mind will doing everything in its power to tell the body to take it easy. And this is what separates the champs from the others. Champs focus on the future and the goals that they have set for themselves. They don’t dwell on the present, they don’t complain that they’re tired or hungry. They keep that carrot dangling out in front of them, working on the goal, the prize, the trophy. There’s plenty of time for junk food, lounging in front of the TV or computer AFTER the goal has been achieved. Champions keep themselves motivated, they don’t talk themselves out of doing the hard work, sticking to the diet or getting enough sleep.
“If it is to be, it’s up to me.”
Champions take full responsibility for their lives and their futures.
