Yesterday, I talked about our need to get over our fear of failure (or rather our fear of succeeding). As I continue this week of posts, I want to turn that one post into a stepping stone for this one and the next three. Everyday, I will throw out one more mindset trick or challenge for you. I hope that they encourage you to take the chances that are necessary to succeed in life, business, and lifting heavy things!
Once you are done wrestling with the challenge in front of you it is time to step up to the bar. It is time to clear your mind from all the distractions that keep you from focusing on the task at hand and grab success. Clear our how heavy that last lift was and clear out the idea that by succeeding now, you will have a new best. Get your mind wrapped around the task at hand.
Step up, get your feet set right, grip that bar and get ready to work. Prepare yourself to not give up, to keep going even when it gets hard. Know that starting to lift is the hardest part. Take the slack out of the bar, and strap in for the ride.
Let life pull against you just a little bit and feel the battle start to rage. Then stand firm and get locked into place. The struggle is real, the battle is about to take place and you are going to have to fight. Physically, emotionally and mentally. Are you ready?
Have you cleared your mind of all distractions except the task at hand? If you know what music is playing, you are not focused. If you hear the other bars hitting that ground and see others celebrating victory or defeat, then you are not focused. Get focused…the heavy lifting is about to begin!
