When you’re talking about movements, there’s the saying “practise makes permanent”.
It’s something I learned from Sam Loch (episode 88), specifically about rowing technique, and how you should never, ever perform anything but a perfect stroke - because practising sloppy technique makes sloppy technique permanent.
It occurred to me that the same thing applies to how we see ourselves. Every time we think something negative - I can’t do this, I’m not pretty enough, I don’t like my body - we’re practising a negative outlook. And, as we know, practise makes permanent.
In today’s episode I talk about practising positive self-talk to ultimately create a permanent change in outlook.
