Or is it just a redux of 2020? That is entirely up to you. You get to decide.
It seems that a lot of people have hit the “wall” with quarantine, restrictions and things being different than they were before. I get it. Circumstances haven’t been ideal. Working out looks a bit different now.
Does that mean it’s worse? That’s for you to decide. Nobody else but you. We can either complain about the circumstances or make the best of the circumstances we have.
One of my favorite quotes is from Albert Einstein: “The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.”
❌The folks who believe they live in a hostile universe will use the current state of the world & circumstances to validate the fact that life sucks, everything is difficult, and success can’t ever really happen to them. They have a “why me?” mentality.
✅ The folks who believe they live in a friendly universe will make the best of their circumstances, no matter what. They’ll see that there’s good in everything (even if it’s minimal) and have a “TRY me!” mentality.
My advice would be to avoid the following negative thought patterns:
“I don’t get as good of a workout with virtual training.”
“I’m not motivated to work out at home.”
“I can’t work out with a mask.”
Whatever your particular circumstance, none of these statements is a fact. They’re all decisions. Only YOU get to decide what you’re capable of in 2021. Only YOU get to decide what goals you’re going to set. Only YOU get to decide what actions you’re going to take … every day, every week, every month … to achieve them.
Don’t focus on anybody else or what THEY think. Especially those who believe they live in a hostile universe. Their goals are not yours. Their limitations are not yours. Only YOU get to decide what you want for your body, health and happiness … and only YOU get to decide what you’re going to do each day to move closer to those goals. Believe in YOU.
