The power of the mind

The mind is a POWERFUL tool! When I am positive, focused, and open minded I have performed at much higher levels and generally been a much happier person. I have made some changes since Thanksgiving that have freed my mind of negativity + chaos, allowed me to be more focused + present, and opened my mind to so much more! More exploration on so many levels. More belief in myself. More grit. More physical strength. More tenacity. More mental fortitude. More resiliency. More desire to be better than I was yesterday. More potential to be the best version of myself I can possibly be.

Life and triathlon can be very uncomfortable at times with so many uncontrollable factors and unknowns. This can make it difficult to stay positive, focused, and in the present moment, but positivity, focus, and staying in the present moment is where it’s at! I have achieved SO MUCH success when I focus on what I need in the present moment. Don’t worry about the past. Don’t worry about my workout after work. Don’t worry about tomorrow’s work meeting. Don’t worry about the next interval. Don’t worry about how the conversation is going to go. Don’t worry about what others are/aren’t doing. What do I need right here, right now?

As I embark on my first race week of 2019, I am happy to report that my mindset is strong, positive, focused, excited, and I’m ready to unleash some serious attitude on Sunday!!

How do you use your mind as a powerful tool?

  1. This is why I love your blog so much even though I’m not a triathlete! Your positive attitude is so infectious!

  2. Great post! I really have to keep focused or I can quickly get caught in a negative spiral. I used to beat myself up about how much I had to remind myself to stop regretting or looking back, but then I realized that it’s totally ok that I have to work at being present and positive-it’s better than just giving up and being unhappy.

    Have a GREAT first race!!

    1. Thanks Amy!! It is important to give ourselves grace and know that we can’t possibly be 100% positive and present all of the time. It’s ok to have to remind ourselves to be positive and in the moment!! Knowing change is needed is a step in the right direction!! ❤️
