Can't. Won't. Never. These words can hold you back from your goals. There is power in positive thinking, so it's necessary to learn to squash negative thoughts. Here are some tools…
1. First, be conscious of your negative thoughts. If you have a habit of doubting yourself, become self-aware of that attribute so that you can change behavior.
2. As soon as you identify a negative thought ("Ugh. That weight is heavy. I won't be able to lift it."), STOP! Replace your bad thoughts with good ones. ("I've totally got this!")
3. Check your posture. Put your body in a position of power. Breathe.
If you put these three tips together, it can be quite effective. Identify negativity => replace with positive words => stand up straight, breathe => conquer what's in front of you.
