Your Mind Gym – What Makes You Stretch?


Hi there 🙂

I am not referring to physically stretching here (although it helps to relate to doing that somehow). I’d like you to consider the notion of psychologically stretching yourself to do more, or be more. It refers to competing with your old self, or beating your past limits.

When as a toddler you started walking, your firm steps increased in increments till falling down took place less often. Same thing happened to most endeavors you put your mind to.

Gradual baby steps towards big achievements are the key, usually, to making things happen. You can’t expect to do 500 sit-ups, nor can you swim 50 laps straight the first time. You build your tolerance & skill progressively.

This brings me to the idea of what makes you stretch. To me, it’s either persistence, patience, or both. Persistence characterizes more appealing outcomes; patience helps you endure a less attractive process.

Persistence enables you to keep taking action even when your motivation wanes. Patience helps you endure discomfort knowing there’s a greater reward at the end of the process.You build both through practice.

If you stay focused on your final goal, you’ll be surprised at how far you can go when you just stretch slowly and willingly. In life, we’re faced with situations that coerce us into doing that, right?

And “To those who complain physical exercise is torture: Compare it to having to exercise your patience. Piece of cake, ha?” ~ 3Ds

Go on… Willingly stretch…. Build your capabilities by choice….

Let your heart-beat drum louder at how close you are to your ultimatum….

Oh, I hear you…. 🙂
