Are you a runner? Are you a weight lifter? Are you a powerlifter, strongman competitor, or a stage competitor? Are you a little of all these put together? Whatever your fitness passion is, one thing in common to all of these is that you will never reach your full potential if you lack the confidence in yourself to achieve greatness.
Confidence can make the difference between 1st and 2nd place, the difference between a good and a great workout. It can mean deadlifting that extra 2.5kg. Confidence is a key to breaking what you think are your limitations, which definitely can be broken.
Confidence, as defined by dictionary.com is: full trust; belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or thing
Full trust in yourself won’t always be easy! Belief in your own power will sometimes be hard, and at times, will seem almost impossible. But, confidence is what is going to get you to that moment, the pinnacle of any realistic goal you can set.
Walk into that weight room like you own it. Grab onto that bar like it’s the lightest thing you’ve ever picked up. Run that distance like it’s the shortest, easiest thing you ever done. Then, and only then, when you tell yourself, “I can do this!” is when you will succeed, break those limits and achieve your goals.
Don’t, however, mistake confidence for arrogance. Don’t be the one to walk into your training area like, “Look at me and what I can do.” No one likes, wants to be around, or train around an arrogant show-off. Be confident, yes, but don’t cross the line.
Self-confidence is boosted by a solid support system. To make your own confidence soar, surround yourself with like-minded people, people that will help to motivate and push you. “But, where do I find someone like that?” If you feel like the Lone Wolf searching for that someone who will always be there for you, to help you push those limits and motivate you beyond what you think are your capabilities, turn to Hi B Fitness.
