Yup. The title says it all. Stop listening to yourself!
I took a cycling class at PowerCycle today. The woman leading us said “Don’t listen to yourself, talk to yourself. Tell yourself you can do this. You deserve this!” In that moment I had been thinking “I can’t I can’t do this.”
If you hear this in your head, don’t listen. Take the opportunity to TALK to yourself. Get yourself through that obstacle, whatever it is. Maybe it’s an actual hill on an actual bike, maybe it’s a toxic relationship or a break up, maybe it’s getting to school or work, maybe it’s a shower, or your depression, your anxiety. Whatever, and I mean whatever it is, push yourself through with your words.
Your words are powerful. Use them with kindness. Use them with strength. Use them to push forward.
You can do this. You deserve this. You owe this to yourself.
