Episode 032 – Frustration and Worries

Frustration and Worries – While this episode doesn’t necessarily have a focus on fitness, the men and I do discuss how the level of frustration that you carry around with you and the things that you worry about the most often can impact you from a fitness perspective. We had a great chat on this topic that I think you’ll enjoy it…

“Frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression.”

Art Williams – Just Do It (ORIGINAL) – YouTube

  • FEAR the topic of health and fitness.
    • False
    • Expectations
    • Appearing
    • Real
  • EXCUSES post which includes the most common “reasons” people give for not getting started or simply giving up.
  • Personal development ==> The key to success is failure, which means the faster you fail, the faster you’ll succeed.
  • Thomas Edison – He said “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” That’s the kind of mindset that allows you to overcome your frustration and worries.
  • Remember, no two people are exactly alike, so don’t compare yourself to anyone else other than yourself.
    • If you really want to eliminate frustration, then your only goal should be to be better than the person you were yesterday.
  • In Arnold’s speech to the University of California, he said “anything I did, I was always willing to fail. Trust and believe in yourself.
  • Every time they train, IT DOES NOT GET EASIER! In fact, they push themselves harder each time. The point is that just because they’ve got an “amazing” body, they don’t start to backtrack and everything suddenly becomes easier.
  • Instead of asking yourself “How long will this take?”, you need to be asking yourself “How long can I go?”
    • Do this and I promise your mindset about fear and worries will be wiped away. The reason is because your are 100% certain that you will achieve the results you want, so long as you remain consistent and practice the PLAN, DO, REVIEW method.
  • What are some of our own frustrations and worries? Family, health and fitness, business, financial, etc?
