I'm finding the Olympics deeply inspiring this year. I am learning so much from the Olympians.
Breaking Through Fear & Negativity
Listening to heptathelete Jessica Zelinka talk about working through all those negative thoughts in her head, all the doubts, fears and worries, and getting to the work inspired me greatly. A lightbulb went off and I realized that no matter your level of achivement, you will always be dealing with that gremlin and their demoralizing messages. No matter what you do, those voices are going to be with you. And for some reason, now that I really get that, I feel freed. Those voices aren't going anywhere and I simply don't have to listen to them. I can let them shut me down or I can get on in spite of them. Basically, I can give in to them or I can get over them.
I'm choosing to stop listening to negative chatter and get on with it. How about you?
