For me, it’s all about breaking the patterns. The negative ones. The positive ones I have down cold. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been blessed with a fierce streak of perseverance. This helps me stay on track and accomplish what I need to. The patterns I want to erase are the unnerving thoughts of failure, stress and worry. In kickboxing we call this “head trash”. Why stress over things you can’t control? You can do your best, keep working hard and contribute to the desired outcome as much as you can. But some things are beyond you. Beyond your power and control. Knowing when to give up the control in those moments goes a long way to staying on the right track and avoiding the wrong track.
