Life is a mental game. Even physical endeavors, like getting lean and fit, begin in the mind. Every behavior is preceded by a thought and a decision to carry through on that thought. Champions are first champions in their own minds, and only then can their greatness come to fruition in a physical sense.
Never underestimate the mental training required to succeed in life. As a personal fitness trainer, I often spend more time working on a client's mental fitness than I do his or her physical fitness. Until we are mentally prepared to succeed, good results will be impermanent, and frustration will persist.
I share my seven tips for keeping mentally fit at Huffington Post Healthy Living.
Thanks as usual to Gina Misiroglu of Red Room for putting me in touch with the Huffington Post people. It’s just one of the great ways she's bringing traffic to Red Room and getting attention for Red Room's authors.
