Another "any one who knows me knows" statement coming in 3, 2, 1 ... I consider myself a pretty tough individual. It doesn't hurt that I'm stubborn as all hell and being a typical Taurus, a hardworking, determined individual. I welcome any physical challenge that comes my way and often have great success with them. I don't like to say "I can't" to anything. I will spend hours and hours and months and months building up to a single event but, and this is where I need some help, this is where I struggle.
I always have.
I get into my own head too much.
I start to put boundaries on what I'm doing and where I'm going. Most specifically, while running a marathon. Maybe it's the logical, detail oriented business analyst in me maybe it's something else but I need to get past it. I have the means to get past it, I have the physical capabilities to make anything happen but still I get hung up.
Mantras help. Focus helps. Confidence helps.
What do you do to get yourself past these points? Brute force? Finding your special place deep inside the mind? Disassociating completely?
