NOTE: Today’s blog post is by my good friend and business partner Gidget Blunt.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” – Marianne Williamson

Confidence is one of the keys to success. Fear is a serious inhibitor of success. If you want to do something, you first have to believe you can do it. 

Last Saturday, a group of us participated in an obstacle race called the Battle Frog. A couple of the guys joked that they could see a post coming. They weren’t far from the truth, but I have had this topic in my head for a while. Saturday just gave me some extra material.

Lifting requires confidence to complete the lifts. On the flip side, lifting has given me so much more confidence not only in my workouts, but in life as well. Not only lifting, but also doing things like obstacle races, half marathons, etc. Confidence comes through accomplishments. It comes from leaving your comfort zone and doing things that scare you.

Saturday, my teammates got to witness my full on panic attack at the top of a twelve foot wall trying to get to the other side. I’m scared to death of heights, but that did not stop me. Later, at the top of a huge cargo net, I forgot all about my fear of heights. Why? Because my baby was struggling to get over the net. I was so focused on the goal of getting him down. 

My message to you today is this:

1.Your action will always follow your belief. If you believe you can, you’re right. If you believe you can’t, you’re also right.

2. When you focus on the goal, you won’t fear the obstacles in your way.

3.Small successes lead to confidence which leads to bigger successes.

4.Don’t give up and you will have no limits to what you can accomplish.

5. Believe in others as well, and help build them up. You never know what a difference you can make in someone’s day or even life by just encouraging them or saying something kind.
A simple yet powerful message today from someone who was told in high school, “You will never run….” I personally say her run a 9:06 mile yesterday and she has now completed two marathons. 
Great message. THANK YOU Gidget.
