It’s easy to get into a rut, in your training, in life. Picking yourself up is a process, and I have developed a system of doing it because I don’t have the luxury of being in a bad mood! You all deserve better than that, and at Gumsaba, all of our coaches strive to bring you their a game at every workout.

Step 2: Find a quote you really like, and print it out. Put it on your desk, or in a priority spot in your home. Change it as much as you need to.

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”  – Marilyn Monroe

BOOT CAMP LAFAYETTE

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
― George Bernard Shaw

Step 3: Hit a really hard workout to sweat out the bad and breathe in the good. Do it with people you enjoy, or do it alone. No matter how you feel, do it. If you are really having to push yourself to get there say your quote in your mind like a mantra; replacing your negative thoughts with positive ones is all it takes.
