Eliminating doubts

Doubt has been such a big part of my life for so long… I always doubted myself, I was always asking my friends family or just whoever their opinions of my decisions I should be making.  Doubt does such  a big thing in our lives… Its like the “buzz kill” of our happiness & dreams & this took me years & years to overcome.

When I was in my early 20s I did powerlifting, and I was a really strong good lifter. I excelled in this sport as I do in my running today.  I attended many powerlifting events and compititions but never had the courage to actually compete.  I would listen to my friends and family saying “girls do not do things like that, girls don’t lift 300 pounds”…. I was so crazy to listen to this mess…

I could be 34 years old with those accomplishments under my belt because I would have won alot of those competitions, unfortunationately I wasn’t smart enough then to listen to myself…. So today when I hear people saying things to me like I will never run again or I will not qualify for Boston I alway disregard their doubt and listen to MY positive mind! It did take me years and actually I think it took a marathon for me to learn myself that I can do this and I am capable of SO much more than I ever thought!

I had a conversation just the other day with someone and I was stressing to him that his doubt does nothing but tear him apart! To focus only on the positive even when it is a negative situation… And I  only told him this because I was speaking from many experiences…
