CONFIDENCE CONFIDENCE CONFIDENCE
It's a hard quality to develop! A few months ago my friend @neellocha asked me if I wanted to do a tough mudder, I thought why not? As the day came closer I got more worried and doubted I could do all 25 obstacles. But I got my butt up every day and trained.
The day finally came yesterday. And I was so nervous I almost peed myself at the start line! With the help of my team and the people around me I made it through the first few obstacles! There was one obstacle, obstacle 15 Funky Monkey the Revolution, when I walked up I thought 'Nope, no way i can do that, my arms are too weak'... then said it out loud. And I heard myself, DOUBTING MYSELF! Why was I doing that? I IMMEDIATELY changed my thoughts and told myself over and over I could do it. AND GUESS WHAT!!
👎🏼 I failed. 👎🏼
I got through the inclined monkey bars, I got past the horizontal wheel, got on the first vertical wheel and I fell....I FELL! And I was so mad, because I knew deep in my bones I could do it.
So I got out of that muddy pool and dried my hands the best I could and I TRIED IT AGAIN! I CRUSHED IT! I WAS SO PROUD not was am I AM SO PROUD! I knew I belonged out there! I was among some of the nicest, strongest, dedicated, determined people in the world and I KNEW I BELONGED!
It was a first for me, feeling so many positive things about myself. I guess that's what happens when you dedicate yourself to working on your confidence!
Today I encourage you to used your confidence! Turn a thought that you keep rolling around in your brain into action! You've got this! - 46 minutes ago
