So whilst watching2 episodes of Search4Hurt on 7mate, I was feeling so awesome, inspired, calm and really happy.
Then my brain took over and I found myself thinking
‘OMG Andrea, you can’t do these things!
You haven’t trained hard enough. You’re not strong enough!
These are world class athletes you’ll be training with. Who are you to think you can do this?!’
I contacted Sharon Anyos in my flutter. Sharon is the 5x World Champion Boxer (incredible woman) and we have been training together.
I told her how my training has been all wrong, and how I should’ve done this and that.
Sharon simply told me how spectacular I am, especially under pressure, and reminded me of a few things.
Then I woke up to what my brain was doing to me!
I have been training with and by Sharon and her amazing father (who was her trainer when she won the World Championships.)
And here I was worried that I would look stupid among world class athletes – but have been sooooo fortunate to actually be hanging out with one now!!
Yes maybe some of the guys at Hurt Camp may be much stronger and faster than me, but I will definitely be a strong force, BECAUSE I WANT TO BE (and because I know how strong the mind is over the body.) And because I’m seeking to be a better and stronger version of myself (in all aspects of my life) daily. And if I’m not there yet, then I will get there. It’s only a matter of when not if!
Our thoughts are such strong influencers over our bodies it both scares and excites me.
It also makes me realise how important it is to have a strong network of people around you to lift you up.
Or if not, then separate yourself from people that bring you down (or don’t actively inspire and support you to reach your goals) and read books, watch YouTube videos – you can get whatever you want or need from the internet! Educate and nourish your body with inspiring goodness from the inside!) and surround yourself with the positive influence you need to help you to succeed.
Don’t let your mind negatively take over and stop you reaching your goals.
You can reprogram it to be a powerful force to hep you to achieve whatever it is you want in life.
The body will go where the mind wants it to.
Let’s make sure our mind is strong, positive, powerful and wise, and you will achieve your dreams.
