We Are What We Repeatedly Do

Repeating ego boosting mantras out loud at the gym or just prior to a workout can make you look crazy, but it also improves your performance. Research in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness found kickboxers showed improved muscular force and well as reduced stress while under a mental and physical training regime, rather than a purely physical. The key is to “feel” yourself doing the movement or exercise as you visualize it being successful. Memorize motivational phrases to focus on, and repeat them in your head. One of my favorites, “We are what we repeatedly do”. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” Remember “thoughts are things” choose what you think wisely.
