Clear Your Mind of ‘Can’t’
I often hear clients say “I can’t do that” or “I’ve never been able to do that”. My response: You just haven’t tried the way that works for you.
Push ups often defeat people and bring out the ‘can’t’ mentality. Nobody thinks they can do push ups because the movement is too difficult or their upper body is too weak. Look at it another way: increase the incline, decrease the depth, take it all one step at a time, and find a way to work with your own strengths.
Pull ups as are a struggle for many, as well. Pull ups can be done and will happen if you clear your mind of that thought, replace it with “how CAN it be done”. It will take time, but it will happen. Practice the movement, exercise the muscles involved, work at it everyday.
Clear your mind of ‘can’t’ and you will see amazing things happen. Find a different solution for your ‘can’t’ and it will turn into a ‘CAN’. Look at a problem with different perspective–the “I CAN” perspective–and see what happens.
You CAN and you WILL!
