3 Major Motivation Mindset Shifts I Learnt About Daily Practice… From Shitty Practice & Preparations This Week (For my Run/Swim/Run on Wednesday 😱 )

I could feel this post coursing through my veins as I willed my legs to take another stride.

Today I learnt a lot about the blindspots in your mindset as it relates to anything.

RUNNING, has shown me my blindspots smacked in my face.

1: DAILY PRACTICE = PREP (HINT: Rationalisation Ruins Regularity)

Today as I ran, realising SHIT only 2 sleeps until my RUN/SWIN/RUN race a pre-event in the Noosa Tri.

You get on a roll = and then you miss a few days here and there and tell yourself you can catch up. Shouldn’t set you back to far.

WRONG.

When you return after weakening the muscle because of your own rationalisation with regularity.

It takes 10x longer. Today after a 5 day break, the run literally felt 10x longer than usual.

It feels so much hard. Today as I ran, I felt heavy, like I was loaded with lead, instead of bouncing and bobbing along the beach. I felt like a boulder with square edges.

I floated the idea of giving up and questioned my motivations more than I ever. Looking for ways out.

IS THIS HOW YOU FEEL WHEN YOU’RE RESISTING DAILY(ISH) COMMUNICATIONS ON SOCIAL?

Is that how you feel when you JUMP all in online for a week. And then gone?

I mean it should be working after you’ve posted 3 posts in a few weeks right? It should be working by now right?

I mean I should be FIT right? I should be a RUNNER by now, cause I’ve been training sporadically for like 5 weeks right? I should be lean, ripped and running a marathon…

When you don’t do the DAILY PRACTICE. The DAILY RUNNING. The DAILY WRITING. The DAILY VIDEOS. The DAILY VOICE. The DAILY VISUALS.

Each time you step back out onto the TRACK.

It’s HARDER.

It takes LONGER.

You feel like GIVING UP 90% more than you do when you’re DOING IT DAILY.

There’s PREPARATION in the PRACTICE.

SIDENOTE: I also started looking around for people to blame for putting this idea in my head. Do you do that? I wanted to BLAME everyone for giving me this stupid idea in the first place, it’s amazing the rage that you feel when you CAN’T DO WHAT YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO, ONLY BECAUSE OF YOUR SHEER REFUSAL TO STAY WITH THE PRACTICE. And that’s that.

2: “the ROCK” MINDTRICK (HINT: Rationalisation Ruins Regularity)

I was about to go to bed. And then I had this flash of what it would feel like to get this BOOKLET finished by tomorrow. A day earlier than I committed to.

I didn’t ‘feel’ like it. But then I looked at the DEADLINE DESTINATION and pictured how it’d feel having it finished.

When I’m running, I notice something fascinating (see I told ya, running was teaching me so much about the mind and the games it plays and how you can use it for you).

I notice that when I’m all up in my head.

“This is HARD”

“OMG I should be so much better than this by now”

“Why am I puffed about 300 metres”

“Far out, I’m not going to make it”

“Geez louise I’m weak as piss, how do those runners make it look so easy, gliding through the air like prancing ballerinas? I feel like I have legs of lead”

When you’re spitting shit like this in your head, as you’re trying to RUN (or metaphorically write or do videos… stay with me here). It makes you weak and uses more energy than it gives.

When I’m spitting this shit into my brain.

My legs slow.
My mind weakens.
My heart beats faster.
My lungs can’t keep up.

THE ROCK

So I have this trick for my running. Where I look at the rock, where I want to run and I just focus on that.

Not on my breath.
Not on my legs.
Not on my heart.
Not on my exhaustion.

I look at the rock and my legs just move.

IT’S LIKE MY LEGS GET A MIND OF THEIR OWN AND MY WHOLE BODY FALLS IN LINE WITH WHERE I’M GOING.

It’s fascinating. That’s the power of focus and your BIG DREAM right.

Fixating your focus on the ROCK and your body, mind and spirit falls in line and slipstreams you to it.

I’m guessing this is how you feel when you’re doing what I’ve mastered create and communicate substance = daily(ish) << let’s be real here. I get days off.

SET THE BIG DREAM, FIXATE ON IT AND THEN LET YOUR BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT FALL IN LINE WITH IT. WATCH IT WORK.

3: TRACK IT OR LIE TO YOURSELF (HINT: Rationalisation Ruins Regularity)

Bottom line, I looked at my Strava app today and was like OMG WTF. I haven’t run in 5 days. Because I was spending so much time:

STRESSING about it.

THINKING about it.

WORRYING about it.

Instead of freakin running. I felt like it’d been on my mind all week, but mental effort is not actually the effort.

When I looked at my Strava, I couldn’t argue with it. I hadn’t run in 5 days WTF! The lies we tell ourselves via the time we spend:

STRESSING about it.

THINKING about it.

WORRYING about it.

It doesn’t count.

It’s not the actual thing.

Doing the thing = the actual thing.

The 13 minutes it took me to do the 2 kilometre run up the beach as the kids and hubs swam, took less effort (even though I was weak as piss)

It was easier than:

STRESSING about it.

THINKING about it.

WORRYING about it.

It took less energy.

So DON’T count the time you

STRESSING about it.

THINKING about it.

WORRYING about it.

Only count the time you are actually:

DOING it.

CREATING it.

COMMUNICATING it.

I’m talking about YOU now. YOU and your creating and communicating.

Not for a WEEK.

Not for a FORTNIGHT.

Not for a MONTH.

Not for a YEAR.

Not for a DECADE.

But for EVER and EVER… AMEN.

I mean are you just here for SHITS & GIGGLES? I’m here for your BIG DREAMS. I’m here for my BIG DREAMS.

My BIG DREAM is not to run a marathon.

My BIG DREAM is to be on OPRAH.

I set BIG DREAMS that are BIG. Everything I do in between, is apart of that BIG DREAM.

I love the BIG DREAMS CHASE.

I’m not here:

For a WEEK.

For a FORTNIGHT.

For a MONTH.

For a YEAR.

For a DECADE.

I’ll be here for EVER and EVER… AMEN.

So don’t lie to yourself.

Track what you’ve done.

Because what you DO or DON’T DO today, creates your TOMORROW. Little by little, it’ll become something BIG… if you let it.

So I have 2 x sleeps to do a RACE, where I’ll be running on pure MINDSET. So we’ll see how that goes. But whatever happens, I learnt so much (as I always do) by getting the heck out of my comfort zone. When was the last time you did that?

Love Jana xx
