Please do not throw in the towel! Stop focusing on what you think you did wrong. You do ZUMBA or Kickboxying 4 times a week..That is tough stuff! That's amazing! Give yourself Kudos! How do your clothes fit? You are on your way to a healthier new you and should be congratulated for that.
I bet the Zumba and Kickboxing classes are getting a bit easier. Recall the first time you took either class...were they a breeze...probably not. I bet you were you out of breath...didn't think you could take another step at each....Did you quit???...no you bumped it up to 4 x a week...amazing..!
Think back to the first time you ever ______("fill in the blank")...did you quit? If so, why? What was the real reason? How about when you were 1 year old and started to learn how to walk...I bet you fell down alot...figured it was easier to just stay down on the floor and crawl...but that only lasted so long..you had places to go...you just had to try to stand up and walk..even if you fell down..you had to keep on .......and you got stronger each time you took a step...fell down alot yes...but got stronger and stronger....the only difference is when you are that little, you have no fear..."no fear of failure"....but John Maxwell says it the best "everyone must fail forward to success"
Make your "want to" and your "need to" stronger than your "can't" and your "won't"
Get excited by trying something new...perhaps a different class..challenge yourself, step out of your comfort zone.......and most of all believe in yourself!
Celebrate yourself on a job well done so far....Everyday is a brand new day! If none of us believed you could do it, we wouldn't be replying to you. I have a long way to go, as I just started March 13...however....I know I will have good weeks, bad weeks, but it doesn't matter because I am enjoying the journey...
I will leave you with some inspirational positive quotes from two of my favorites, John Maxwell and Mary Kay Ash. I truly hope that you stick with it and don't quit!
"To achieve your dreams, you must embrace adversity and
make failure a regular part of your life. If you're not
failing, you're probably not really moving forward."
“The greatest mistake we make is living in constant fear that we will make one.”
― John C. Maxwell
“If you start today to do the right thing, you are already a success even if it doesn’t show yet.”
― John C. Maxwell
“For every failure, there's an alternative course of action. You just have to find it. When you come to a roadblock, take a detour.”
Mary Kay Ash quote
“Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.”
― Mary Kay Ash
