Kettlebell workout is complete for today and I am now consuming my protein shake for breakfast as I write this post.
So, I had a little wobble yesterday at only day 3 of my challenge!!! Thankfully it did not last very long but it did pop up and I promised to be honest about my journey on this challenge. I call this wobble ‘the curse of not good enough’.
I am sure it has plagued us all at some point in our lives. The questions popped up in my head unexpectedly, ‘What if this does not work?’, ‘Can I really do this?’, ‘What if something happens and I miss a day?’ and the biggie, ‘What if I fail?’. This does not bring a good feeling to the body.
How did I overcome this? Well, I reminded myself that this was my challenge, I set my own standards therefore I have control. Tony Robbins says ‘You get what you settle for’, I do not want to just settle with what is currently, so I have control over the choices I make moment to moment. I also went for a walk to get out of my flat as I have generally been inside planning and writing for this challenge, I needed a break and movement of your body in any form helps to change your mental state. I also spoke with a trusted friend who helped me focus on what is important. I then later on listened to some inspirational podcasts, currently I like listening to Lewis Howes and Marie Forleo.
To recap actions to help you get over the not good enough curse are:
· Take a break, get out or do some exercise.
· Speak with a friend if you can.
· Remind yourself you are good enough and you have the freedom to choose your thoughts and actions at any given moment.
· Read something informative and inspirational that will help you.
· Anything that will distract you for a bit that brings you enjoyment this will help to reset you to get back on track.
I hope this has helped you in some way. Here is the link to my Instagram account for this challenge. https://www.instagram.com/channel_freedom/
