What If It Was Easy?

On was on the Peloton bike, grinding away, thinking how hard it was.

I was tired.

My legs felt heavy.

My quad was seizing up.

I kept thinking, This sucks.

This is hard.

I want to stop.

I reminded myself of when I ran cross country.

That was a mind game.

You’re in the woods, often by yourself, chugging along.

I used to have the same thoughts.

This sucks.

This is hard.

I want to stop.

What if I twisted my ankle & had to stop?

But then I came up with a game...

I’d tell myself:

This is easy.

I got this.

I have more energy.

I’ve been saving my power.

I’m about to make my big move.

I didn’t know it then, but I was tapping into the power of changing my mindset.

What are you trying to do but telling yourself is hard?

Exercise regularly.

Stop drinking so much

Stick to a healthy diet.

Start your own business.

Feel happy in your marriage.

What if you started telling yourself it’s easy?

That you got this.
