I was coaching one of my clients who recently finished her second marathon this year, and honestly, she wasn’t feeling great about it. She felt like she should be farther along in her journey as a runner and was creating all this drama in her mind about why she wasn’t there yet.
I’m using my conversation with her this week as an example of how our brains can create unnecessary drama for us that isn’t even true! I’m revisiting the coaching model I teach to show you how what you think might be facts about a situation can actually just be your opinion.
Join me for the lowdown on how our brains work against us sometimes when we give it too much headspace. Choosing our thoughts carefully is so important! If you’re going to let your mind beat you up about something, at least make sure the facts are straight.As long as you're continually working on improving, working on moving forward instead of letting yourself get stuck in the mind drama, you're going to be fine.
