What’s that spell? YOU ROCK!
SAY IT AGAIN!
I CAN’T HEAR YOU!
Yes, I know, cheering for yourself feels a tad bit strange at first. Especially if you spend a whole lot of your life stuck in the role of worst enemy and toughest critic.
So I thought today being Super Bowl Sunday and all seemed like a really great day to work on your Inner Cheer Squad. Grab those pompoms and get ready!
I read a post last week on @lightwatkins that really spoke to me. He shared that in a book called “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield, the author describes the main difference in a PRO and an AMATEUR is an amateur does what they need to do when they feel like it, and a pro does what they need to do whether they feel like it or not.
Ka-bam! Isn’t that a #truthbomb??
How are you showing up in your life? Is it amateur night or are you putting the same drive, dedication and focus on your goals and happiness as those football players on the Chiefs and Eagles do every single day?
A big part of turning PRO is learning to tap into your Inner Cheerleader and turn down that voice of doubt and unworthiness. Just like a pro football player spends endless hours building muscles and running plays over and over until they are second nature, we have to train our minds to overcome our negativity bias and evolve into our biggest #1 LIFE FAN.
Sadly, just as we are wired negative we are also quite predisposed to laziness and comfort as our fallback. We would rather stay in our comfort zone and be miserable than step just outside that zone where new habits, new experiences, and new adventures await us.
\So what does it take to move from Life Amateur to Life PRO? From self-defeating nay-sayer to Professional Cheerleader?
Repeat after me. PRACTICE. PRACTICE. PRACTICE
You can’t do one rep of sit ups and get a six pack. Neither can you tell yourself one time “You’ve got this!” and start to believe it. It’s a daily, life-long practice. It is all about repetition. Telling yourself time and time again that you are 100% worthy, you are absolutely ready, and that falling down is just a reminder to get back up and try it again.
Now it’s also really helpful to have a Support Squad of people who love you and want the best for you, right? That’s why sports teams have cheer squads - to keep the team and the crowd amped up even when things are going south.
Unfortunately, though, our personal support squad might not always be right there on our sidelines ready to lift us up. It seems each of them has their own life they are trying to figure out right along with us.
Which is why a super strong and highly skilled Inner Cheerleader is a MUST if you plan to become a Life PRO and join the starting line up instead of just spending life pining away on the sidelines hoping for your big break.
Whew! Are you ready for an entertaining commercial break and some nachos?? Or are you perhaps ready to step up your game and join the PROS?
