Yesterday morning my husband, John Griffiths, and I took our furry kid, Peaty, joring ๐Ÿ‘‡. She's gotten so much better at it and loves it. It makes both of us so happy, as you can tell from our faces here ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅฐ

Yesterday afternoon John and I rode on our indoor cycling trainers - downstairs in what I call our cycling pain cave. Let's just say at the start of the ride, my face did not look happy like that anymore! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ณ I'm getting back into riding indoors when weather (or schedules) calls for it - and woof - yesterday was rough.

3.5 miles in, my mind went into full on saboteur mode and I almost got off. The short 15.2 miles left somehow seemed sooo far and I was doubting if I had it in me to keep going. Thankfully quitting seemed harder than finishing and I literally started silently repeating and visualizing the words "YES I CAN. YES I CAN."

Yes - I actually do corney stuff like this and yes - it actually works (most of the time). ๐Ÿค“

Right away my mind and body shifted and I started looking for the miles ticking away. Not that it was easy at that pace - but it did become a fun challenge that I knew I could do.

In work life I think most of us have similar saboteur moments when we doubt ourselves and question if we can keep going (be it on a task, a project, a job, a career track even). ๐Ÿ’ฅ What we say to ourselves in those moments usually makes all the difference in setting our mindsets. ๐Ÿ’ฅ

The next time it happens to me in work (or on the bike) I'm going to pull out that mantra again - repeating and visualizing the words "YES I CAN. YES I CAN." Thought I'd share this with you in today's story in case it can help you during a saboteur moment.

You've got this! ๐Ÿค˜
