There are many women who are so afraid of making a mistake that they don’t do anything. Instead, they sit around worrying about saying the wrong thing, getting laughed at or appearing vulnerable. The truth is, we’re human and we are going to make mistakes and look silly from time to time—and that’s okay!
We can be so afraid of being judged or criticized or getting laughed at that we allow the fear in our lives to stop our progress. This is especially true when it comes to exercise. Often we refrain from exercising because we don’t like the way we look, we don’t like the way we look because we need to exercise—it’s a vicious circle. Then to make matters work, we don’t want to ask for help when going through a workout because we don’t want to appear stupid or vulnerable. What we cease to forget is that everyone who is exercising started out as a newbie too.
I have known women who refused to change jobs because they couldn’t stand to be the new girl at work. The fear of feeling of vulnerable or ignorant has a way of paralyzing our progress. It’s time to break free of that bondage and get serious about making a difference in your own life.
Exercise can give you that freedom. It has a way of empowering you as you master feats you may have never thought possible. If you will take the challenge and begin exercising today for just 30 minutes, you will transform your life. You will shed the chains of imprisonment and crush the feelings of defeat. Exercise will allow you to take control of your body, your health and your life.
Don’t be afraid to try something new. Take a walk around your neighborhood and chart off one mile and then two. Enroll in a dancing class or take lessons in tennis or golf. Buy a new pair of running shoes and start training for the next marathon. It won’t matter how fast you go, all that matters is that you complete the race—that’s what makes you a winner.
