I believe that everything happens for a reason. I believe in the power of the universe. I believe in The Secret and the Law of Attraction. I can't read enough about this. I am an eternal optimist about everything and truly believe that I have the power within me to make all my dreams come true. I have been reading a lot about this lately and then I saw a posting at Fitness Revolution were I work out, about a mental toughness workshop they were offering. I work out 5-6 days a week and have really been focused the last 5 months or so. I will admit, I have trouble resisting anything sweet, anything covered in chocolate, anything meant to be served after the main course. I have no will power when it comes to treats! Don't even get me started on ice cream!

So I thought this workshop would be about that; how to be mentally tough when it comes to working out and eating right. It was, but it was also about so much more! It was about mental toughness and the ability to control your thoughts, actions and emotions in order to make things happen in your life. It was about thinking about what you are thinking about. Do you even notice that or does your mind just go all over the place?

This 90 minute workshop got me thinking and I was so pumped up about it! It was just an introduction to a 6 week program that Fitness Revolution is offering. Brett Denton will be conducting the workshop and he has quite the story. He used his own personal path of mental toughness to walk-on at Boise State and get a scholarship, eventually ending his BSU career as a senior in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. (If you haven’t seen this game, go to Sears…hit the electronics section). I was so moved by Brett’s story and how he used the concepts of mental toughness to make his dreams come true. It is truly fascinating the power of the human mind and all that we can do if we just get tough! I literally walked out of the workshop last week on a high. I felt so motivated so that is why I am posting this.

We should all feel this way! I see so many people who are just moving through the motions of life. That is no way to live. Life is an amazing journey!  So if you are wanting to start 2014 with a new way of thinking then you should do yourself a favor and check this workshop out!

Have an awesome day!!
