On Self-Talk

Do you ever talk to yourself? I do all the time, especially when I'm running or lifting. Self doubt can destroy everything we do. Have a strategy in mind when this happens. Talk to yourself. I know this sounds goofy, but it works. Oddly enough, when I talk to myself I never use the first person "I" but always the second person "you." Examples:

  • You got this. 
  • You can go another mile.
  • You are strong enough.
  • You are only an hour away from a big juicy steak.

Sometimes getting behind yourself is the best thing you can do.
