How to make your inner weaker self your friend
I just returned from a run in snow and rain and was surprised how happy this made me feel. You should probably know one more thing: I don’t like cold weather, I love the beach and the sun … but snow and rain with 0°C … bbbrrr no way!
Somehow I still enjoyed that. And I had the same experience one month ago when I actually started to enjoy swimming in the pool and I was somehow in a flow while doing this.
2 month ago I hated free style swimming and didn’t see the point in doing it, beside becoming fit for my first triathlon coming up in May 2014. So I was thinking: “How come I enjoy something where my inner weaker self was so strong a month ago?”
And then I found a wonderful article at: http://waitbutwhy.com/2013/11/how-to-beat-procrastination.html
with a wonderful picture (Source Waitbutwhy.com) which explained it perfectly for me.
In the beginning I was in the dark woods and my freestyle swimming was very limited and I didn’t enjoy it … But once I could handle to swim for 40+ laps I appreciated it so much and I was even getting into the flow 🙂
Thanks guys at waitbutwhy.com for this great illustration and explanation! Awesome 🙂
Where is your inner weaker self so strong that you are still in the dark woods?
