When it comes down to it, who do you have to rely on? Who is dependable? Who is always going to be with you?
Hopefully, you have a circle of family and friends that support you always, and that can lift you up when needed. Even when you have that support, you may not feel it everyday. You may not want it everyday. So, who do you have to support you when that happens?
You have yourself. You always do, and always will.
No matter what happens in the world around you, you always have yourself to rely on.
Now, if you haven't done anything to progress yourself, to better yourself, to evolve, then you might not have much to rely on. If you have improved yourself consistently over time, then you have a dependable rock that can steady you during the toughest times.
It doesn't matter if you are having difficulty with a recipe or a workout, you have yourself. It doesn't matter if you are thriving or failing, you have yourself. It doesn't matter if you are sick or healthy, you have yourself.
No one cares more about you than you do. No one is more invested in your well being than you are. If you are waiting for someone to come along and care more than you do, then you will be waiting alone for a long time.
When you get sick, get help if you need it, but also figure out why you got sick and how to prevent it from occurring again. When you don't have any money, get help, and figure out why you can't live within the budget you have. When you get injured, get help, and figure out how you got injured so you can work to prevent it from happening.
Stop waiting for someone to come out with the next medication, the money solution, or a new surgery to fix your issues. Start believing in you.
Sickness happens all over the world. Sickness is more prevalent in some areas than others. Why is that? Some people are more proactive about their health. They have a great understanding of their diet, their lifestyle, and their risks. That doesn't mean they are the most educated, but instead they are the most aware, and they value themselves and their health more than others that frequently risk sickness. Believe in yourself.
Money issues are more common than ever. We all know someone who drives the newest nicest car, but lives in a tiny apartment. We also know people that live in lavish houses, but struggle to pay the bills. More money does not solve these problems. Understanding money and understanding yourself will solve these problems. Learn better financial skills to alleviate the money concerns. You don't want to wait for someone to bail you out. Believe in yourself.
Injuries happen. Sometimes it's from poor decisions made, sometimes it's just plain bad luck. Your body is even more amazing than you know though. Think of every cut, scrape, bump, and bruise you've ever had. They have all healed. Everything heals in time. Now, realize that injuries from trauma or wear and tear also heal over time. It doesn't matter what the injury is, your body will find a way to heal if you stop irritating it and making it worse.
Some injuries require medical attention. You've got a bone sticking out, you should get check out. Got a deep cut that needs stitches, go get it done. Can't put any weight on your foot, can't feel your legs, can't lift your arm, all those need medical attention.
What about those injuries you have that are highly painful but you can still function? You still wake up, shower, get dressed, eat, go to work, and go out on the weekend. Those injuries may need help, but you also need to believe in yourself, and believe in your body. Your body will heal eventually. You may need to change your activity and lay off the backflips for a bit, but you will heal.
Even with injuries that heal, you may still have pain for much longer after the healing has happened. This is because your very specialized and sensitive nervous system has learned to protect you. It knows that the last time you did a certain motion or activity, you got hurt. So, your nervous system protects you and tells you it's painful even though nothing is wrong. Believe in yourself.
Believe in your body's ability to recover, to get better, to excel.
Believe in your mind's ability to learn, adapt, and evolve.
Believe in your resilience, your determination, and your motivation.
No one believes in you more than you should. No one has more riding on you than you do.
Believe in yourself. #snowbeastperformance
