I can't


You are correct my friend.

Do you know why I am so sure? Because you SAID it.

We have all seen this, right?

I am here to tell you that this is not just a saying. It is truth and it is especially poignant and meaningful for fitness. Let me share with you what brought this thought to me today. 

Jump roping isn't easy. For most it's something that you pick up as a kid and, like riding a bike, it just comes back to you as needed when you are an adult. 

It's not that easy for everyone though. 

I joke with Teresa because it took her quite a while to get efficient at it but now she is a pro. Like a champion she kept working on it till she got it right. 

When people pick up a jump rope after not having jumped rope for many years often the first words out of their mouth are, "I can't jump rope." 

This happened this morning in my 6am fitness class. 

It's human instinct to simply state that you can't do something when, well, you can't do it. 

It may be an instinct but it is a habit that we need to lose because it is a defeatist attitude and I don't like it. 

I don't let people say, "I can't" in my class. I know that it is simple verbage and it's just a couple of words tied together but to mean it shows a habit of using excuses to justify a result. 

I just don't like it. 

My advice to you is to sweat the small stuff. Understand that if it comes out of your mouth then the thought is in your head. If the thought is in your head your mind and body and the universe are working to make it happen. 

Next time you are trying something that you just can't master say, "I got this." This one little change will create better results for you guaranteed. 

Those struggling with the jump rope in class this morning will get better. We will help them with technique and they will master the art of jump roping. 

What is your "jump rope"? What is something that you are struggling to conquer? Think about the words that you use. Your words become your thoughts which become your action. 

Remember, if you think you can't you are automatically right. If you think you can at least you have a fighting chance!
