Fitness is greatly to do with a positive mind, a human is easily able to limit themselves if they want too, however if you think you can, you can! The mind leads the body, the mind wants the body to move or perform a task and the body performs the task. As a result the more tasks performed well, the more positive the mind becomes, more motivated and committed. A number of aspects can influence the mind, including good rest patterns to clear the mind, plus some more tips below:

Even if you are faking, smiling can lift your mood. So if you find yourself hitting the wall, turn that grimace into a smile and brighten up your day. why not try smiling as soon as you get up in the morning?
When your mind has done something well, it acknowledges this and grows confidence to do that task again.

It highlights the positive rather than the negative and feeds the mind with a sense of achievement and optimism.
