What’s Your Story?

What’s your story?

Not enough time? Too tired? Training and diet just don’t work for you? I’ve heard all of these quite recently!

When it comes to dropping a few lbs or getting in shape one thing is for sure we need to follow a strategy, then again even when we have the correct information we sometimes still don’t make any ground. Mostly this is because of the story we are telling ourselves.

A client of mine who was struggling to find time to workout suddenly found that she had enrolled into a 10k run when initially she thought she had signed up for a 5k! The funny thing is, beforehand she could barely find the time to fit In a single session outside of the pt session she had with me once a week. The story went, ”I just don’t have time” or ”I’m way too tired after work, it just won’t happen”  The thought of having to run a 10k was a bit of a shock to her system and the turning point where everything changed. Not wanting to let herself down she found that actually, she could fit in every single training session necessary to complete that 10k, which then resulted in her more recently signing up training and completing a 10 mile run!

Amazing what we actually can do when we change our story and use a strategy. Something happens, we create a new state within ourselves, one that challenges the old story and makes anything possible. So the question I’ve been asking myself is, what story am I telling myself that is stopping me from achieving my own goals?

What’s your goal and what’s the story?
