Last night something weird happened. As I was doing my Barre exercises, I failed to complete each exercise. I gave into the burn.
Later, while sitting on the couch eating chips as a reward for my mediocre effort, I considered why I let the burn win. But instead of beating myself up, I decided to find reasons to believe in myself.
Here are just a few accomplishments I jotted down (please ignore the grease from the potato chips):
Now it’s your turn . . .
Do me a favor. Write down a list of things you have accomplished in your life. Amazing feats you have pulled off. Wonderful things you have created.
Then, the next time you lose faith in your abilities, pull out that list and review it.
Tonight, I finish the entire Barre exercise video. I go for the burn.
Because I can.
