Nothing builds confidence like success, and the harder you try, the more you will succeed. Most people don’t fail because their goal really was unattainable; they fail because they didn’t really believe they could reach their goal, so they only put out a 75% effort.
Believe that what you do influences what your results will be. Fake it until you make it. Chop your head off to make progress. Gene Landrum, PhD, tells us that we talk ourselves out of anything and everything. We’re emotional creatures. We think of all the reasons why we can’t do something. In his book, “The Superman Syndrom”, Landrum shares story after story of achievers who overcame all odds to achieve greatness. Put on your cape and fly. You’re more powerful than you know.
You know that you’re capable of greatness.
As Ed continues to shred for the Universe, the mental aspect becomes more and more important. “The process” as Alabama football coach Nick Saban talks about, becomes the guiding force. “The process” is taking one thing at a time and doing your best at that one thing. Have an aerobic session scheduled? Push everything else out of your mind and give that aerobic session 100%. All that other stuff that’s trying to compete for your attention will wait.
World Class Bodybuilding Success Tip:
For 1 week, spend time focusing on “the process”. When you have time, do what has to be done. If you have a family and all the demands that come with it, take YOUR time and spend it on “the process”. Do your cardio, do your food prep, use the tips in this series to make progress. “The process” will keep you moving forward one step at a time. At the end of the week, see how far you’ve come. How much more relaxed are you knowing you’re using the same tool (the process) as one of the greatest coaches in college football (Nick Saban)? It’s a simple technique but it works.
World Class Workout Challenge:
Most people are plagued by the disease of being led by their emotions and the inconsistency in performance that this creates. Learn to use emotion as a tool without letting it interfere with your performance. Don’t let emotions dictate your behavior.
- On a scale of 1 – 10, how good are you at pushing past your feelings and doing what needs to be done?
- How can you improve your ability to push past feelings that threaten to slow you down?
- Who can help and support you in this area? Your spouse, girlfriend, training partner?
Most of us will overate ourselves and claim great control over our feelings. Let your results be your guide. Are you getting the results that you want? Are you becoming leaner each week or are you taking one step ahead and two steps back? Lock into your emotions and choose to control them so they don’t control you.
