We are all guilty of overthinking things from time to time.
When it comes to working toward goals in the gym, its best to condition yourself to quit thinking so much.
Quit thinking about how you feel.
Quit thinking about where you want to go.
Quit thinking about what you should have, or should not have done in the past.
All you need to think about is the task at hand.
It’s really all that matters.
It doesn’t matter that you’re feeling sluggish today.
It doesn’t matter that your last set felt harder than you expected.
It doesn’t matter that you regret what you ate last night.
Achieving your goal(s) requires adherence to a very simple formula.
Before reaching your goal, there is a certain amount of work that must get done.
You must chip away at that work.
It doesn’t matter that you aren’t 100% today.
It doesn’t matter that your mind isn’t all the way in it today.
The work still has to get done.
