"He who hesitates is lost". This is a phrase that I used to hear all the time when I was wrestling. If two guys were tied up and waiting to throw the other, the one that waits for everything to be perfect will be the one flying in the air. There are many reasons why we hesitate in things we do. The main cause is that big fleshy thing between our ears: our brain! We are afraid. We are afraid of what MIGHT happen. We are afraid of getting hurt. We are afraid of falling on our faces. We are afraid of being embarrassed. We are afraid of what others might say or think. They are all possibilities but they are all in the negative vein and all stem from FEAR. Fear is a protective response that is designed to keep us from injury, ANY type. Physical, mental and emotional. Fear is necessary because does keep us from doing incredibly stupid things, or at least makes us think about the first. But if you give into fear then it can become a completely all-encompassing thing that swallows you up like a giant amoeba. It can paralyze you in your very tracks. It can cut your confidence down to ankle height. The only way to battle against this is to acknowledge the fear but not to think about all the outcomes. You know where you want to go so you need to ONLY think of that. Make THAT inner voice be as loud as possible to drown out the other thoughts. Even if its something like a mugging. If you are paralyzed by fear then the mugger can do whatever they want. If you acknowledge the fear and realize WHAT and that you WILL do something, then you take action. Again, think about only what you will do, not about what might happen if you do this or that. Lifting a max weight is the same thing. If you go to the bar and think it's heavy or that you might hurt your back or you will never get it out of the bottom, then your power is slashed due to the fear. If you clear your mind and only think about doing what you need to do; keep the chest up, get full extension, shrug hard and pull body under the weight and stand, then you will have a much higher percentage of success. Don't let fear make you hesitate. Acknowledge it but flood your mind with what you will do and then, with a clear head.....execute!:)
