Do Something That Makes You Uncomfortable

For as long as I can remember I have been terrified to drive. I don't know where the fear comes from but it's there. I didn't get my license until I was twenty one. However, the more I drove the less I was afraid. It sounds like such a simple a concept... Doing something to get over your fear. I have numerous clients who come in on a daily basis and say " I can't do that," after I show them a certain exercise or give them a meal plan to follow. My response is usually something along the lines of "do it anyway." Possibly insensitive on my part but hear me out. You do not get the results you want by selling yourself short. How do you know you Can't do something until you do it?  The only person holding you back from something is yourself. You've it heard a thousand times but what is it going to take to truly sink in? I can almost guarantee that once you do the that one thing that is holding you back, it probably won't be as bad as you thought (or maybe it will and you will never do it again) but at least you can say you tried. So be willing to push yourself to reach your full potential. With that in mind, do that one thing that scares you.

Happy exercising and enjoy the rest of your week :)
