Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
Michael Jordan is arguably the one of the best basketball players in the world. So you may ask yourself, what kind of problems could this guy have! Deciding who the pass the ball to, or just drive the ball to the basket himself.
If Michael Jordan had a challenge and stared them down, what are you doing about challenges. Do you find a way around them, or do you just throw your hands up and decide that it wasn’t meant to be?
When of my favorite expressions I like to say whenever someone tells me they have a fitness challenge I say “It’s not like you’re climbing Mt. Everest in a bikini.” Most people laugh and really think their fitness challenge isn’t that huge.
Whenever I’m faced with a fitness challenge, here are a few things I do to help turn the mountain into a mole hill.
- Workout — this is my favorite, I come up with some of my best ideas this way.
- Talk it out with a friend — sometimes when you say it out loud your challenge(s) doesn’t seem that the bad.
- Break problems into smaller chunks — when you look at the problem as a whole it may seem like Mt. Everest, (sorry I have a thing about Everest) but then you sit down and break it down it, again it doesn’t seem that bad.
Tell me your fitness challenge. I’d love to help you solve it.
