Today’s episode I have a great conversation with Julia Weagle about what happens to your motivation after competing for a few decades, and then deciding to step away from the game.
We explore the delicate balance of working really hard towards your goals, while also learning to enjoy the process of training.
- You might enjoy this conversation if:
- You experienced a period of time where you relied only on skill and physical training
- You are known to not give yourself enough credit
- Sometimes have a hard time starting something new (like going to the gym or following a new nutrition routine)
- You don’t have goals you don’t have motivation
- You have taken, are taking, or plan to take a break from curling and are unsure what to do with your time
- Question your relationship to physical training for either fitness, and/or curling performance, and/or overall health.
- You struggle to make fitness fun/enjoyable
- You can ask yourself questions like:
- Where do you want to be in 6 months, a year?
- What are the minimum requirements of physical activity/fitness for health?
- How can I shift my mentality to value and enjoy the process more than the outcome?
- How can I get more comfortable with learning about self, doing things for self, speaking nicely to myself?
- What are my priorities right now?
