this'll really hold you back
Ever felt intimidated?
Or in awe of someone else?
Or walked into a group of people and felt you were the..
Or anything else you lacked!
Well, you've probably noticed that these feelings kinda suck!
Feeling 'less than' is never helpful
So today I want to teach you how to overcome this.
Be a little bit cocky
Not recommending to walk round like a dickhead
But rather as a way to THINK STRONG - to protect your ego from being crushed from the 'less than' thoughts
I read a long time ago that you can never become something you are in awe of
Read that again please ^^
YOU CAN NEVER BECOME SOMETHING YOU ARE IN AWE OF!!!
My understanding of the quote is this:
"to become something awesome you need to stop being impressed by it"
And one great way to stop being impressed by something awesome is to start thinking cocky (read: confident) thoughts about it.
You'll start to break the thing down and see it for what it really is
Which makes it more believable for YOU to achieve
Here's a few examples:
1) A jacked guy deadlifts 200kg in front of you. You cannot even deadlift 100kg
WEAK THINKING: "oh my god what I jacked dude, I'm a weak failure and I'll never be blah blah blah"
STRONG THINKING: "that's a great lift and I'm happy for him, but give me a year and I'll do MORE than that"
2) A strong girl squats more weight than you've ever seen, and you're jealous of her legs.
WEAK THNKING: "damn, I'll never have a boo-tay like that. She must have great genetics. I'm too old and wimpy and I'll never be blah blah f-ing blah"
STRONG THINKING: "if she can do it, that means I can too. Nobody starts out super strong it shall be earned!"
Watch yourself like a hawk for weak thinking
Replace it with strong thinking
Stop being in awe of things
Start being outwardly respectful, and inwardly DRIVEN
