"Thoughts" that will sabotage your efforts


1. “Slow and steady wins the race”. Tell that to Mo Farah or Usain Bolt 

2. “ Everything in moderation”. I have never seen this approach work in anything. Its like telling your boss you don't want to make to much money   

3. “It’s better than doing nothing”. We should set the standards by which we judge our efforts higher than doing nothing     . 

 4. “It could have been much worse”. Not doing as much of a bad thing is not the same as doing a good thing.
 
5. “That’s good enough” .This statement means you’ve settled. Saying “that’s good enough” is not the same as saying"I've done the best that i can".    

 6. “ I don’t have time”. Really? Research has shown that just 90 minutes a week can lead to significant improvements. That’s just three,30 minute sessions. Record Eastenders on Monday ,Wednesday and Friday nights and go to the gym instead.  

       If you find yourself rationalising or justifying your behaviour chances are your talking yourself into doing something you shouldn’t be doing. Remember to have both conversations with yourself. Talk to yourself with the same honesty and respect you would expect from someone speaking to you.
