You're right. If you've taken class with me, you may have heard me say that a positive mindset will help you get through a tough workout. But if you walking into the gym, or the 10 second countdown is up, and you're thinking, "I hate thrusters and there's so many thrusters in today's workout. This is going to suck." Well, then you're probably right. It will suck. Now, I'm not saying a positive attitude is going to magically make your workouts feel amazing. But a positive attitude can help you push a little harder than you thought was possible, or add a little bit more weight to your bar, or run faster, or go unbroken. A positive attitude of "I can" is very powerful. Building yourself up based on the things you can do is a lot more gratifying than tearing yourself down based on the things you "can't" do. Think about when you first started CrossFit, I'm sure there were plenty of things you couldn't do then, that you can do now without question. It's a process. Pretty soon, the things you think are just so far out of reach, will be within reach. Just think positive!
