I love the chapter for this week….titled “Head Games” (Chapter 6). Like many of you, we’ve had periods of our life where that little voice inside our head keeps saying…”you can’t”…..and for the larger part of our life, we focus on telling that voice, “I can….”.
How many can relate?
I remember … when I was younger and twenty pounds lighter….I loved to compete in triathlons, especially the longer distance ones….half-Ironman and full-Ironman distance events. The sequence for those races was typically SWIM….then BIKE….then RUN. I usually finished middle of the pack during the swim, since swimming was not my strength. But then on the bike, I would make up a lot of time, picking off other competitors as I raced passed them.
Then….and luck would have it, I would lose a lot of time on the run……just simply wasn’t my favorite event.
Looking back now, however, I think I might have done better had I not listened to the voice in my head saying “you’ll never win this race on the run…..”.
Head games…..all the time!
Our author this week correlates how thinking negative thoughts translates into our failures to follow the 4:8 Principle. In reading the chapter, you’ll discover, and I did….how to not only notice these “voices”, but also how to tackle them once and for all!
We’re back at the Cornwell Center this week. Rob Miller leads us for our lesson.
