You're at the tail end of a grueling workout. Exhausted. Thirsty. And staring at a heavily loaded barbell that I've just told you to deadlift. What are your thoughts?
"There's no way in hell I'm lifting that!" or the contrary, "There's no way in hell I'm losing this battle!"
You can have all the physical strength in the world, but if your mind is weak, if you cultivate negative thoughts or lack the ability to focus, you'll fail. Even the most fleeting, seemingly insignificant thought of uncertainty will make the difference between success and failure.
In the most trying times of a workout, be AGGRESSIVE, not apprehensive.
Be DETERMINED, not doubtful.
Have RESOLVE, not reluctance.
Cultivate a strong, positive mindset in the face of adversity and you'll find yourself consistently reaching your goals.
"The battle is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave." -- Patrick Henry
