Everyone goes through shit. Sharing it and talking it through will hopefully help others go through their own when it’s their turn to launch a business. That’s why the founders of my favorite newsletter have started a podcast, Skimmed From the Couch, where they interview entrepreneurs like Sara Blakely, CEO of Spanx, and Payal Kadakia, the CEO of ClassPass, in their beloved, no-BS, no-holds-barred style to learn the real story of what it takes to get an idea off the couch. New episodes drop every Wednesday. I may be your best friend, but the Skimm is your smartest friend. Chase down your mantra with Skimmed from the Couch on your drive to work today.
“What we think, we become.” This quote is attributed to the Buddha.
Hi, my name is Coach MK, and if you are listening to this podcast, you are likely familiar with my work with Lifetime Run and Another Mother Runner. I believe you were made in the image of a perfect maker and that you are capable of incredible things. Until you are there too, I will believe enough for the both of us.
This micropodcast is part of my plan to get you there faster.
Theodore Roosevelt said, “Believe you can, and you are halfway there.”
Mantras are most powerful first thing in the morning. They set a confident, optimistic tone for your day. Overtime, they can change how you feel about yourself, how you see yourself.
Mantras can make you believe. In other words, mantras can get you halfway there. You have no idea what you are capable of. I cannot wait to show you.
Today’s mantra: “Rest makes me unbreakable.” Resting is part of training. In a training cycle, a body at rest isn’t lazy, and it is far from idle. It is busy. Your busy body is repairing tissue, strengthening your joints and those sexy, sexy ligaments, replenishing your fluids, and refreshing your mind. Your body builds strength not by breaking muscle, but by repairing it. A body that doesn’t properly rest, doesn’t properly repair. Rest makes you unbreakable. You are coached. You are loved. And you are winning at life.
