Our amazing fight parts want to tell us…
"It’s now or never."
"It’s my way or the highway."
"Rise and grind."
After all, we all LOVE watching success p*rn.
It gets those parts of us excited.
It seems so urgent.
It’s now or never .
It’s not possible to keep working for as long as you have, as hard as you have.
You’re not getting results, right?
Which tells us your body is saying slooooowwww doooowwwwnn.
But you want to know the worse truth?
(I say worse because I have that fight part of me that wants to do ALL the things too)
Slower is faster.
Effort, action, practice accumulates over time.
Like investing. Like a relationship. Like a career.
Like anything worthwhile investing into.
And your mindset is the key here.
Because you have to practice having a practice mindset,
so you can get there.
Practicing looks like -
Practice letting these things be okay…
Instead of beating yourself up and starting again.
When we create these HUGE mountains to climb in our mind…
We are often left stranded…
With nowhere to go…
But back down to the bottom.
Instead, we need to camp out.
To use our wisdom.
“Is this time to push or time to rest?”
(Hint: If you only ever push, you need more rest.)
In fact, that’s one of the principles of The Sports Model Project .
Be The Hardest Worker In The Room:
I will work harder than every other person who is in any room with me.
I recognise that often the hardest work is knowing when to rest or be playful.
Because high standards without self compassion is self bullying.
Do you want to learn to master this?
Love and light,
