Masters Athlete 7 Deadly Sins
Apr 16, 2020
Masters Athlete's wisdom states the following to be deadly sins:
Not moving or not intending to move.
You’re not a effing tree... there’s nothing keeping you in place. A body is meant to move. If you don’t the “old” will creep in.
An opinion or conclusion.
Stop judging yourself. Judgement is the thief of happiness and progress. Accept where you are currently and make a plan to get to where you want to be without judging the journey,
Belief that something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.
Nothing is a bigger buzz kill than fear. Fear is not real, it’s a choice you make. Courage is a choice too. Be careful what you choose.
Lack of confidence in oneself and one's abilities.
Self-doubt is rooted in the belief you’re not enough. Here’s a little secret...you ARE enough and always have been. Repeat that last sentence again.
Lack of interest, enthusiasm, or concern.
This my friend, may be the biggest sin there is. Self-destruction starts when you stop caring about yourself.
The quality of being similar or equivalent.
Comparison only strengthens your own insecurities. It serves absolutely no purpose. It will rob you of knowing how far you’ve come in your journey and only remind you of how far you still have to go. Happiness is found in the love of the journey itself and not the destination.
To stop or discontinue (an action or activity).
I’m not saying it’ll be easy. I’m saying it’ll be worth it. Every day is a new opportunity to start. You’ll never get there if you choose to stop trying.
