And girl, don’t I know that after the day I had yesterday.
It’s so easy to forget who you are.
It’s so easy to forget what you've done.
It’s so easy to forget the love you treat people with.
It’s especially easy when the song on repeat in your head is what you aren’t, what you can’t do and what you don’t have.
Yesterday I spoke with Kerwin Rae on his podcast.
It was a really great experience and I enjoyed talking with Kerwin.
Before our chat I was definitely operating from a space where It was easy to forget.
I was focused on:
What I’m not.
What I can’t do.
What I don’t have.
So talking about what I have done,
who I am, what I stand for
and what I have built in The Sports Model Project was a beautiful and timely reminder.
Because if your up or down,
it’s all in your own mind.
It’s what you focus on.
I’m not telling you this as some guru.
I’m sharing this because I know it will help.
There is a really similar idea that athletes use, that I believe you should too.
See athletes are a little obsessive
they focus on the mistakes they make,
they beat themselves up and they very quickly forget what they have done well. (Feel familiar?)
So athletes learn to build a showreel in their mind.
They teach themselves a highlight tape that they have saved in their own mind. Each success, amazing floor routine, hand spring, layout, back squat or glute-ham raise gets saved in one mental movie.
Each image gets tagged with the colours they saw at the time, the tastes they experienced and the smells, then they replay that show reel over and over in their mind, especially when they are stressed.
What sort of show reel do you have?
It may just be thoughts and word right now.
Is it a reel of the best stuff
or a reel of the worst?
Where did it even come from?
Maybe it’s time to actively build your showreel?
Fill it with the good stuff you are doing and replay as needed.
If that feels daunting, a nice first step is to write five things you have done well in the last week and start to repeat that to yourself.
So I’m really thankful for appearing on Kerwin's Podcast yesterday,
it was a reminder of my showreel and of what I have done.
Whether I’m up or down it’s all in my own mind.
It IS what I tell myself.
I have been an elite gymnast.
I have developed a powerful mindset.
I am a world champion.
I have over a decade of experience and expertise as a trainer and coach.
My peers are world leaders in training and nutrition.
I have built a business that gives me freedom AND delivers a worldclass service
I do help women all over the world to transform themselves.
I have created an environment, a team where women can support each other.
I do love with my whole heart, all the time.
This is the principle of radical responsibility in action.
“I am wholly responsible for my feelings, for my actions, my words and the thoughts I choose to keep."
"I am responsible for observing those feelings, thoughts, words and actions”
Radical responsibility is one of the 8 principles we live by in The Sports Model Project.
That’s just one reason why I’m so proud of my team, my program and the absolute positive force we are in helping women transform their bodies, their minds and their lives.
Is it your turn?
Space in my team is filling up.
We only have ten spots left.
Once they are filled we will be closing entry for the foreseeable future.
Entry into The Sports Model Project is via application only.
This is only for women who are ready to be the hardest worker in the room.
Overwhelming love, light and gratitude.
