A lot of times, life spills into our training schedules. It’s important to keep a holistic approach to self-improvement. Your physical results leading to fitness goals or athletic improvement will follow your mental game directly. I promise.
This week I spent a couple of days being anxious about something that I really could not control. Before long, though, I realized how silly I was being. WORRY SOLVES NOTHING. So, I went back to putting one foot in front of the other. I trust that God is in control. If we do the things we’re supposed to do day to day, and trust that the end result will fall into place, thing will always turn out the way that they’re supposed to.
Is fear or anxiety preventing you from making the progress that you’d like? Take control. Are you stressed out about a personal issue that eats into your training time? Put it aside and focus on what you can control. Are you procrastinating on pursuing your fitness goals, because you’re afraid that you’ll fail or be embarrassed? Just train. If you put in the effort, the results will come.
Results may not always come exactly when or how we want them to. We may have to work harder than we thought, or overcome certain setbacks, but eventually our efforts will always be rewarded.
Just have some faith:
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
