Accentuate the Positive in Fitness and in Life
“Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they’ve got a second. Give your dreams all you’ve got and you’ll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you.” ~ William James
Positive thoughts lead to positive actions and leave less room for negative thoughts to prevail. It’s like the old song says accentuate the positive and don’t mess with Mr. in between.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IP9h40z0sk Check out Aretha Franklin’s version of the song it will put a smile on your face, When working out a positive outlook can pick me up in a dreary workout and make it shine. Often thinking positive and giving myself 10 minutes to get into a workout will work wonders on my attiyude, how great I feel after the endorphins are flowing and I’m reaching my goal of getting a workout in on a busy day, it can actually propel my workout to another level. I can concentrate and be more focused when I clear my head of negative thoughts from the day. A can do attitude can give me the momentum I need to complete a work out when I might not be “feeling it”. A positive thought at the right time can get me past a sticking point in a rep as well as a sticking point in life.
When I get in a sticking point in life or life on life’s term, I try accentuating the positive. I make a gratitude list or like my favorite book The Secret an instruction manual for a positive outlook by Rhonda Byrne says “smile for a minute and see how you feel” It can change my outlook on my day and my life, or the workout routine I might be doing. My pop used to say, “Embrace life and it will embrace you” same sorta thing, accentuate the positive and don’t mess with Mr. in between. “There’s only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.” ~ Aldous Huxley
