Overcoming Your Biggest Obstacle: Your Mindset
Many of us have experienced that feeling of doubt creeping in when we embark on a new journey or venture. We second-guess ourselves and think things like “I’m not good enough,” “It’s too late for me,” or “This is too hard.” All of these thoughts are normal! But they can also be our biggest obstacles if we let them take over.
So how do we overcome these negative thoughts and change our mindset? Below are three tips to get you started:
1. Acknowledge your negative thoughts.
The first step is to acknowledge that you’re having negative thoughts in the first place. It’s important to be aware of your inner dialogue and the impact it’s having on your confidence and ability to take action. Once you’re aware of the negative thought, you can start to question it. Why do I believe this? Is it really true? What evidence do I have to support this?
2. Practice self-compassion.
It’s also important to be gentle with yourself! So often we are our own worst critics and we expect perfection from ourselves. This is an impossible standard to live up to and can lead to feelings of failure, disappointment, and discouragement. Instead, try practising self-compassion. Cut yourself some slack, celebrate your wins (no matter how small), and remind yourself that you are learning and growing every day
3. Reframe your thinking.
Finally, once you’ve acknowledged your negative thoughts and practised self-compassion, it’s time to start reframing your thinking. For example, instead of thinking “I’m not good enough,” try thinking “I’m doing my best and I’m getting better every day.” Or instead of thinking “It’s too late for me,” try thinking “It’s never too late to learn something new or make a change.” When you start looking at things from a more positive perspective, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve!
Keep in mind that changing your mindset is a process that takes time and practice. So be patient with yourself as you implement these tips into your life. And remember, every journey has its obstacles but each obstacle is just another opportunity for us to grow and learn! Originally appeared here.
Learning New Sports Is Always Humbling
No matter what new sport you are going to learn, you will always find it stressful in the beginning. Firstly, I think it is being frustrated with your brain and body for not being amazing at it really fast. You have to remember some of the people you are training with are 12+ years into the sport.
In Brazilian Jujitsu, we get a lot of Judo practitioners to show up as there are many similar skills here. We also get epic people from all over the world showing up and training with us, each brings their view, their techniques and their unique way of making you submit to their advanced skills.
“There is no losing in jiu jitsu. You either win or you learn.”– Carlos Gracie, Sr.
I am currently almost 6 months into BJJ and despite learning many other styles am still frustrated. It is this type of learning curve that can be very humbling no matter what walk of life you come from. It is useful for you to leave your ego at the door, otherwise, you may not submit when being choked or joint locked and get injured, this is crucial to avoid injuries or waking up on the mats after napping from a strangle.
The Frustration Of Being A Beginner Again
There is nothing worse than being a beginner again. You spend the first few months fumbling around, trying to remember all the different techniques and manoeuvres. And even when you think you’ve finally got it down, you get thrown for a loop by someone who knows what they’re doing. It’s enough to make anyone want to give up.
The question to ask yourself: “Am I just anyone?”
But the thing is, giving up isn’t an option. You signed up for this, so now you have to see it through. Besides, there’s something oddly satisfying about finally getting that one move down after weeks of struggling with it. That feeling of accomplishment is worth all the frustration that came before it.
The Benefits Of Learning A New Skill
Even though learning a new skill can be frustrating, it’s also incredibly rewarding. For starters, it gives you a sense of accomplishment that comes from overcoming challenges and mastering something new. It also helps boost your confidence both in and out of the sport as you become more proficient at it. In addition, it gives you a chance to meet new people and make friends who share your passion for the sport.
Conclusion: While learning a new skill can be tough in the beginning, it’s always worth it in the end. Not only will you feel a sense of accomplishment from mastering something new, but you’ll also boost your confidence and make some great friends along the way. So whatever new skill you’re looking to learn, don’t give up—it’ll be worth it in the end! This blog originally appeared here.
