Buckle up for a lot of tough love on the podcast today, rebels. If you ever use the phrase “fall off the wagon” or say things like, “I don’t feel like it,” especially when you’re supposed to be out running, this episode is for you.
Running is hard sometimes and requires mental work to get motivated and feel excited about getting out there, but we often forget that this is the case. On the podcast today, I’m addressing three phrases I hear way too often that literally take all of your power away, and I want to show you why they’re so harmful to your progress.
Join me this week to gain more clarity on the concept of motivation and the thought work you need to do to tap into it. The phrases I’m using as examples today also tie into perfectionist thinking, which is never useful, so I hope this episode serves as an eye-opener to you.
