"let me just stop for a second, is he crazy, I can't do this, I'm going to pass out, I am strong, I are designed for this, just breathe, stay focused, the more you push, the stronger you will be, imagine how you'll feel when this 60 minutes has been accomplished... "
The entire reason I am sharing this experience with you is basically because as I was having a strained dialogue in my own mind, the instructor who exercised 5-6 hours a day was coaching. He was actively coaching the entire class through the thoughts that have been creeping into our minds trying to convince us we couldn't... I was inspired by his coaching and his words and wanted to talk about them with you.

Typically, we are coaching and we may not even realize the ability we have before us to make a difference on someone else's path. As soon as your mind is pulling you in directions that inform you to lay down on the floor and quit or just to avoid and have a rest, here are some coaching words of wisdom to assist you think twice about throwing in the Now Athletics Yoga Towel.
