Don't "Not"

All too often, we say we "are not" fill-in-the-blank-here. Think about it - why is that we regularly make the claim "I'm not . . . ." I'm not fast enough, I'm not in good enough shape or I'm not ready. These are all common "I'm not" statements we make, particularly about our training efforts. Kristin Armstrong writes how to shift your language to be more positive in a blog post for Runner's World. It's amazing how a slight shift to "I am" can make a difference in the attitude through which we communicate. We should be good to ourselves and use language that establishes a positive spin in our lives toward our fitness activities.
