Eat your asparagus and stop complaining
Every time you complain with things like;
“oh prep is so hard”
“I can’t believe what I have to do on this prep”
Then the more you condition yourself to dislike it or not be motivated by it
But when you have a positive outlook on every aspect of the process you will be more inspired by it
So when it comes time to cook your meals or run the sprint or eat another piece of fish or whatever it is you have to eat, make sure your mindset is CELEBRATING that decision
If you look at some of the most successful athletes in the sport, you are going to see a pattern
They embrace & love the lifestyle & rarely complain about how hard prep is or how much they hate the improvement season
Sure they have their tough days like all of us
But most of these people just continue without constant complaints because they genuinely LOVE it & LOVE what the challenges & wins bring to their life
This helps their mindset support them in the continuous pursuit of their goals which are ONLY possible to achieve with the process they are committing to every day!
If the only thing you like about bodybuilding is getting on stage or the social media support, you aren’t going to go as far!
In order to bring your best to the stage you have to be willing to go all in with the process & you can’t do that if you don’t actually like it
You might think it “doesn’t matter” but your mind WILL create an aversion to what you need to do because it associates it with negativity (all sorts of chemical releases that the body doesn’t love!)
So before you complain about this sport that you chose to do & GET to do...
Why you love it
How it helps you in other areas of your life
How it fulfills you
WHY you even do this
If you face the process with more dread than drive & you can’t shift your mindset to one of gratitude then you‘ll have a more difficult time
Your love & commitment is what will keep you going through tough days!
