Believe me when I tell you, “You can do it.”
In that moment when you don’t just think, but know you cannot, choose instead to believe me when I tell you, you can. I would never lie to you. I would never set you up for failure. Your success is why I do this. It is what makes the day worthwhile. I don’t go home and think, I am so great at what I do. I go home and think, you are so great at being you.
Inhale and listen to me. Relax your grip on the barbell for a moment and hear my words. You are not mad at the weights. You are not mad at me. You are mad at yourself for whatever inadequacy you have inaccurately labeled yourself with today. I know you want this and the only thing in the way is you. Listen to me, and as you deeply inhale take my words with the air. Let them inside you. Let them be you.
You can do it!
