Yepppp, I said it. You heard it correctly! 🤯
I’m not anti-negative thoughts.
The idea of never having negative thoughts just isn’t realistic.
Negative thoughts are going to happen and THAT IS OKAY! 🥰
You’re good! You’re not crazy. You’re not alone. Everyone has some shape and form of negative thoughts.
The reasons you have negative thoughts are one of these…
You’re an ATHLETE!
So, if negative thoughts are okay, then what?
We have to do something with them, right?!
You called it.
Here’s what we can do with these annoying negative thoughts that aren’t going away…
1️⃣ Shift your thoughts
Get aware of when they happen and start to figure out how you can start to shift them in a different way, which leads me to…
2️⃣ Think differently
Think differently about your failures (AKA use them to get better and learn). Think differently about your success (AKA there isn’t just one way to succeed).
3️⃣ Take action
Once you’ve learned and grown, now take action! Whenever I take action, I start feeling more confident and honestly, just better!
I want you to respond to this with your hand raised emoji (🖐) if you have negative thoughts.
Why?! Because I want you to see how many other girl athletes raise their hand and are just like YOU. Not only girl athletes, but parents, adults, professional athletes, collegiate athletes, EVERYONE has them.
I’ll be the first one to raise my hand! 🖐🖐🖐
I challenge you to 1️⃣ shift your thoughts, 2️⃣ think differently, and 3️⃣ take action!
Keep on keepin’ on,
