Shift Happens

Small shifts, in attitude, opinion, perspective, and/or actions can have a huge positive impact.

Experts in the self-help biz call this “re-framing”.  In the olden days, our parents would call it “making lemonade out out lemons”.

Shifting, re-framing, turning a negative into a positive, positive self-talk; whatever you call it, here’s a few ways you can implement it right now.

  • “I don’t have to work out, I get to work out.”
  • “Seeing the sun rise is a great way to start my day.”
  • “I welcome this challenging workout.”
  • “I eat hills for breakfast, bring them on.”
  • “When I figure out how to do this, it’s going to make my job so much easier.”
  • “When I master this skill, it will look great on my LinkedIn profile.”
  • “My hard work will pay off on race day.”
  • “Thank goodness for my strong legs so I can run this distance”

One really cool benefit of doing this on a regular basis is that you will start to see things in a more positive light.  It’s one of those woo-woo tactics that actually work.

Sure, you’ll still retain your sarcastic edge, we don’t want to remove that, but you’ll find yourself becoming less of a Negative Nelly or a Pissy Polly.

So give it a try and put positive thoughts out there and see what comes back to you.

What have you got to lose?

Now go run!
