Tell yourself no

One common hindrance to working out is when your mind says no even though your body is perfectly capable. And I’m not even talking about taking risks. Often the mind says no to attempting one more rep or five more degrees in a squat.

And it’s not just the gym, the mind unnecessarily says no all the time. 

For example, the store clerk that says cash only. The business owner that won’t step outside their comfort zone. The employee that fears telling the boss no.

The list goes on. 

Fortunately, if saying no is holding you back, it’s as easy to fix as telling yourself no, no, no… until you’ve proven your mind wrong.
