Who you are


“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.”  –Unknown

So true.  I know my thoughts hold me back for a variety of things in my life.  Swimming competitively in high school my thoughts definitely affected how successful I was.  Just recently, I joined a workout class where we balance on a rounded platforms called Activators doing rows or arm presses or arm curls with weights and I find my thoughts are not always positive like “I know I can do this” to rather “I don’t think I can”.  What’s amazing now is that I am balancing on the Activators, and you would never know I could barely do any of the moves.

It’s interesting to me how our thoughts affect our self image or how confident we are.  A continual learning process.

Food for thought…
