Good Morning Muscle Mamas:
One of my favorite quotes always has been the one below.
“Whether you believe you can, or whether you believe you can’t. You are right.” – Henry Ford
In this case they are both right. The worrier CAN’T achieve, while the warrior CAN achieve. Worriers run away from challenges because they are afraid of challenges. Warriors look for challenging opportunities because they get inspired by challenges.
If you want to achieve greatness, you have to stretch your abilities to achieve outcomes that are currently beyond your abilities. That is the only way you are going to grow and get better.
Worriers blame others for their lack of success.
- My plan had too much cardio
- I had to eat at that luncheon
Warriors take responsibility for their own actions.
- I didn’t do all of my cardio
- I know I nibbled on a few extras that I shouldn’t have
- I should’ve practiced more
You can never learn from your mistakes if you don’t admit them. Warriors use failure as a stepping stone. Worriers use failure as a stumbling block.
Worriers love to bring people down to their level of misery.
- They will not be happy for the other girl’s success
- They wont encourage someone to keep sticking to it
Warriors will inspire their followers to elevate their abilities to reach the next level.
- They will show that following the plan can be successful
- They will show their genuine joy for another girl’s win
Worriers vision is always focused on the past.
- What I should’ve done
- I lost that show
Warriors vision is always focused on the future and the possibilities that the future holds.
- I am going to do better
- Let’s see what I can change for the next time
Your outlook on life is so important. Worriers dwell in the past, making them destined to repeat it. Warriors look forward to the future while they focus on their desired outcomes. Warriors know what they want and they will not quit until they achieve it.
Worriers will accept defeat.
- I Quit
Warriors will keep on fighting until they succeed.
- I will keep pushing forward
We are in a time where things are very hard for the average person. Many of you are going to have setbacks. Worriers will accept their outcomes as permanent. Warriors will let their passion and persistence get them back up so they can keep on fighting.
Take ownership of your actions. Accept things that you may have done wrong in the past move on and make that change. Be the WARRIOR that we know you can be!
