Have you ever realized there is only one person you will 100% for sure spend the rest of your life with? One person who'll experience all your victories and glories, all your failures and hard times? One person who knows your whole story from beginning till end?
That is why it's about time (if you haven't already) you became your best (training) partner. Your best version already lies within you. This is how you can unleash it:
1. Stop trying to be perfect
The mistake many people make in training and life in general, is that they try to achieve perfection. Do you want to know what the problem with this is? No one is perfect. It’s an illusion. By aiming for perfection, you set goals so unrealistic that they become impossible to reach and you never feel satisfied. Instead, strive for excellence. Be brilliant, be bold, be somebody who reminds everybody of nobody. Be the best version of yourself, strive for more but don’t demand perfection from yourself.
2. Focus on what you have already achieved
We often tend to focus on what we haven’t achieved yet, rather than rewarding ourselves for what we have. Instead of just looking for what’s next, pause for a minute and think of how far you’ve come. What have you accomplished? Where were you 6 months ago? You’ve overcome obstacles, outperformed, failed, got up again, achieved. Of course there are many things you haven’t done yet. But they are nothing compared to what you already have.
3. Forgive yourself for mistakes
Mistakes are there to learn from. You’re never going to be the best at something first time round. It’s not possible. It takes practice and a lot of learning. So be ok with failing. With struggle. With not winning every time. Then, take control of the situation and change it. Because it is not our mistakes in life that define us, but instead how we correct them. Accept your mistakes, learn from them and start fresh. Because a mistake is only a mistake if you keep repeating it.
4. Don’t compare yourself to others
Never look at someone else and think you aren’t good enough compared to them. You never know how they once started off. You never know what they’re struggling with. Instead of comparing yourself to others, use their success as motivation. Not as something that makes you feel inadequate. If someone is further ahead at something than you are, look at this person and tell yourself that you too can achieve what they have. And then go ahead and work for it. Reward yourself for your effort. Only compare yourself to the person you were yesterday. Don’t try to achieve someone else’s success. Work on your own. You were born an original, so don’t try to be a copy.
5. Realize that you are unique
Value your personality, your life, your achievements. Remind yourself that there is no one else in the world with the same experiences as you. No one looks, acts and feels like you do. Whenever you start doubting yourself, stop it and look at your achievements, your friends, your good sides. Being unique is always better than being perfect. Be the best friend, training partner, companion to yourself and accept every flaw.
It’s time to become who you’ve always wanted to be
The only thing standing between you and your goal is you. Stop doubting your abilities and start believing in your skills. No one starts off as a champion. You need to work to become one.
