Mindset Pt I – Stoicism: 🔸If it can be endured, endure it. Stop complaining. – Meditations, Marcus Aurelius (Full passage in comments) . 🔸I love Stoic philosophy, and this passage in particular resonates with me because it very simply divides all of our problems into 2 very black and white categories: – Minor Inconveniences. – Things that will literally kill you. . 🔸Once you know which category your issue fits into, practice treating an inconvenience as it is, not as your emotions tell you it’s got the potential to become. . Something the great man @pattyrogers taught me was this: many of us create space for problems, and waste time stressing, without taking action. Even though realistically, you know in your own head that 6 months (or 1-2weeks) from now, you won’t even remember what you’re going through. . #12days out from @icn_victoria show and couldn’t be more excited! Side note: 4 years(?!) after coaching and supporting me through my powerlifting debut, I (almost) look like I do the #TeamToughLove shirt proud 😂😂😂 @_jac_attack_
