Yes, I Think I Can!!

Just finished watching this week’s episode of “The Biggest Loser” and I have to say, this episode had me cheering in my living room!  

What was it that got me excited?  First of all, the contestants were finally working solo and had to compete against all of the other challengers.  No silly games or strategies; just physical and mental stamina and strength.  What really gave me the chills was the way new trainer, Dolvett, worked on building a strong relationship with one of the contestants.

 A strong connection between trainer and client, is detrimental to the success of the trainee.  What Dolvett did was to open up and share his personal life story in order to show his weaknesses an how he has overcome through his life’s journey. He used that as an example of the strength within him that cannot be taken from him.  He asked that the contestant show their strength since it was clear they were holding back from lack of trust.  What is it that’s holding you back lately?

It’s one thing to be able to open up and share your personal story and yet, something else to use that as a driving force in your momentum of reaching your goals.  Never back down.  Although this saying sounds fierce and so strong; there is always a time (or so) that everyone wants to back down; or out.  What separates the successful people from everyone else?  They followed Nike’s slogan and “just did it”.  Simple as that.  Whatever it takes for you to get it done; should ultimately be your driving force.  

So what if you had a setback?  So what if you had a weight gain or bad day?  Nobody will remember these slight dips in your momentum; heck, they probably won’t ever even know about them.  What will stand out is the determination and drive you have and the complete unnerving success you will enjoy from the continued efforts.  

Nobody ever said it was easy.  But know that you can achieve what you truly believe possible.  Like the saying goes; “Whether you think you can or whether you think you cannot, you’re right”.  

That’s all for today, folks!
