Focus on the Now …
You know it’s good to focus on the process. You know you’re not “supposed” to get caught up in the results, or the destination, your supposed to embrace the journey.
So why don’t we?
How many times do you go into workout knowing what you are capable of, or wanting to try something new, or push yourself a little harder and once the workout starts you go right back to that “comfortable” place.
How do you improve your focus and stay present, especially when you’re feeling pressured, stressed or rushed….
Focus on your goals, and the steps it is going to take to hit these goals. Then the less you will be reliant or focused on worries, doubts, insecurities and fear.
Chris wants to be able to walk on his hands. He jokes around that he wants to be on his hands more than his feet! So day in and day out he practices handstands, inversions,shoulder mobility/flexibility and skills and drills to get him one step closer to walking on his hands.
He is now focusing his attention solely on the present moment. The more you practice this, the less you’ll be caught up in your worries, concerns, doubts and the outcomes. Now each day he is one step closer to hitting that goal with the little tasks day in and day out.
Staying present will help you get the most out of each moment. The more you practice this in your life, the easier it will be to focus on what you really want out of life, and what you want out of your workouts.
What do you want to focus on CPM’ers?
