“I am not flexible”
“I can’t do pull ups”
I had a friend who said that words shouldn’t be thrown in the Universe, because they
have the ability to come back and claim you! Every time you say you “can’t” do something, you are not good at something, you limit yourself. Every time you utter words like this, it is like throwing stones on your path and complaining that there are way too many obstacles, you can’t handle.
What you call, usually answers back!
When you say that you can’t run, what do you expect? Do you expect me to feel sorry for you? Do you expect some kind of sympathy? Because if that is your goal, you are
deadly wrong! If you weren’t good at running yesterday, you will work harder today! If you are still not good at running tomorrow, you will work harder till you get where you wanna be!
There are just few people, that are born with God given talents to prosper at everything they do. For the rest of us it takes burning desire, strong will, hard work, failures, persistence, tears, then some more work, until it becomes our second nature, until it becomes part of us….
Dobi wasn’t good at flipping tires… today she is throwing tires like it’s her second job!
Asho wasn’t good at doing thrusters…today he is one of the best!
Dako wasn’t good at running… today he is like a track athlete!
Alex wasn’t good at squatting… today he is stronger, better and his technique is enviable!
Alisa didn’t have endurance and strength… today she is progressing faster than anybody else!
Gabi couldn’t do a pistol…today she is “shooting” them around!
Marinela wasn’t good at doing burpees… today she is an example how they should be done!
Temenuga wasn’t good at handstands… today she is the person that will show newbies how to do them!
Vasilka couldn’t clean the bar… today it is one of her favorite exercises and every time she loads the bar more and more!
Gabi couldn’t do pull ups… today she is a master of the pull ups!
But guess what? All of them worked really hard. They didn’t quit. They had training sessions, that they sucked, but they still had the vision of what they wanted to be. They had a dream, a desire…they chased it and now they are free to enjoy their triumph! What is stopping you to be one of them?
