“Your mind has got your body to where it is today. So change your mind to change your body.” For some people this can be a confronting statement, but it’s true.
Anyone who has attended classes at one of our studios will know we focus on the mind and body. We believe in our students, and we want to be there to support them to achieve the things that may be holding them back (both in pole and everyday life).
Often we are not aware of the inner voice that chats away inside our head. However, subconsciously this can have a big impact on what we are able to achieve and overcome.
Imagine that inner voice is a good friend. Now imagine that friend constantly telling you either; “yes, you can absolutely do this”, or “there’s no way can you do this”.
Over time, this ‘inner voice’ is either constantly telling you something cannot be done. Or it could be allowing you to realise that your specific goal(s) can be achieved.
Our bodies will do whatever our mind tells it to do. Once you tell yourself you can’t do something, you become absolutely right.
If you already believe you cannot do something, then it will be nearly impossible to actually do it. If you find your inner voice telling you something can’t be done, make a conscious effort to focus you’re thinking on “I can do this”. Even this simple shift in mindset can create massive change, and open up to the possibility of you achieving. It’s like the old saying, ‘whether you say you can do it, or say you can’t do it, you’re right both times’.
Being aware of your thoughts and beliefs can have real power. Your thoughts and beliefs shape your views on the world, and they will eventually dictate the actions you take.
You’ll find it easy to apply the correct mindset to things that are your strengths. But the challenge will be applying it to your weaknesses (and we all have them). A change to the “yes I can” mindset will not automatically mean you achieve your goal(s). But what it does do is open your eyes to new ideas, possibilities, options and ways to help you achieve them. If you stay in the “no I can’t” mindset, you restrict your self from exploring all the options that can help you.
A positive mindset is a powerful thing, and when coupled with a step by step plan of action, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
