"I can't do that. But what if I drop it? I don't want to look like an idiot. I don't want to be last. They are way better than me. But what if...?" These are the thoughts that stop us from doing things in the gym, and actually everywhere else as well. They are negative thoughts and they are loudest voices in our heads. No matter what you look like on the outside, if this is what's going on in the inside, then that will what be what is leading the charge to not making it. Think about when doctors and scientist do drug tests. They will give one test group the actual drug and the other a "placebo". The placebo is nothing more than an identical-looking pill or medicine or activity that is taken alongside the real one. The interesting fact is that you will have some people that will get the exact same results with the placebo as those with the actual drug/medicine/activity. But how?? There isn't anything in it so how would it work?? Its because the person BELIEVES it works. Our brains have the power to take us to the highest point of existence or the absolute lowest. And its all based off of what is going on between your ears. The power of belief is so strong that it can carry you through massive struggles but it only works when you wholeheartedly believe it. This isn't something you can "fake it until you make it". There has to be a true and full belief inside that you can do it, that you will make it, that you will be OK. But this isn't easy. It needs to be practiced. We have said before that our thoughts become our words, our words become our actions, etc, etc. so at the very core you need to look at the thoughts rolling around in your head and you NEED to put the reins on them. If they are spinning out of control in the negative, then stop them! Take a deep breath, let it out slow, tell yourself it will be OK and that you are OK. Make those words in your head be louder than the negative. The more you think these words, the more you will believe them. And when you believe them then there won't be anything you can't handle, but you have to believe it! Just like Confucius said...."Those that think they can and those that think they can't are usually both right". Which will you choose? :)
