On a random December week, right before boot camps were to begin, I asked all the fitness Rebels to do something for me.
I asked them to fill out two cards ANONYMOUSLY; 1 card depicting the number one negative thing they repeat to themselves every day, the other the number one compliment that would absolutely make their day upon receiving it.
Once everyone was done and before we got started I asked everyone how many of them had ever FELT that negative mindset, and I mean TRULY FELT IT, towards any other individual other than themselves.
Not a single hand was raised.
These are those people and these are the actual comments they wrote (In no particular order as to keep with anonymity).
There’s a lesson here.
