RAC Family,

We’re well into the Spring season and halfway through our Summer Fitness Challenge! Is your mindset where it needs to be?

Be careful what you say and think… your body is listening. The mind is your most powerful tool, but if you don’t rule it, it will rule you. Fortunately, you can train your mind to be your greatest asset. Just like you train your body, you must invest the time into training your mind as well. If you are flooded with negative self talk, this will inevitably influence your behavior. A negative mind will never give you a positive life.

You are not here to be mediocre. You are on the path to greatness. Here are some things to reflect upon that will keep you on the path to success.
Know your why. Knowing your motives and what drives you will help you develop vision. This vision paves the way for action. “ When your why is big enough, you will find your how.”

Be known for your persistence. One person with persistence can accomplish more than a thousand people with interest alone. “By perseverance the snail reached the ark.”

Don’t let worry direct your life. Worry is allowing fear to triumph over what you believe. It gives a small thing a big shadow. Fear and worry are interest paid in advance on something you may never own. If you are viewing your future from a position of fear, that view needs to be redirected. “When things are good why worry? When things are bad why worry?”

Sometimes you must take the path of most resistance. Sometimes opportunities are missed because they’re dressed in overalls and disguised as work. Shortcuts often lead you on a path to nowhere, so be cautious of things that seem too good to be true. “If you keep your attention on learning the tricks of the trade, you will never learn the trade.”

There is certainly no shortage of wise sayings and meditations that we should reflect upon. Whatever those may be though, commit yourself to training your mind daily. A runner preparing for a marathon is not going to wait one day before the event to start training. Rather, they train year round preparing their bodies to handle the demands of the sport. So it is with the mind. Be the whole person you can be. Your mind matters.

See you out on the fitness floor! -BG
