Stop Being Your Own Worst Enemy

How being self-aware of your inner villain can help you overcome the feelings of indecision, self-doubt, and demotivation.

We all experience those moments of self-doubt and self-loathing that seem to drain all the energy, making us feel depressed and demotivated. Every now and then, when we hit a wall and face a setback, we start thinking that we are not capable enough to achieve that big thing. We self-doubt our abilities and find ourselves deflected from the actual game plan. In such moments, we are being our own worst enemy. Indecision, lack of confidence, and demotivation start occluding our thoughts and our inner villain ends up getting a better hold of ourselves.

So, what you can really do to defeat this monster within yourself and become that energetic, motivated person once again? First of all, remember that the only person who can pull you down is your own self. Nothing in the world can make you feel bitter and depressed unless you allow them to. Therefore, believe in yourself and your abilities and keep your head high and your attention focused on that ultimate objective.

Once you have achieved the right mindset, the next thing you need to do is start appreciating small things. Had a meeting with a sponsor, but you failed to convince them? Look for a positive aspect in this. Maybe they found you friendly and professional, and were appreciative of your ability to accept the outcome. No matter the outcome, there is something valuable that you learned in the journey and you must acknowledge that thing. Don’t over think, do not over analyze, and while it’s important to be your own critic, make sure that the analysis you do results in constructive self feedback.

Put simple, just be aware of your inner enemy and get hold of it before it starts controlling your thoughts and actions.

It’s Hard Changing Your Life, But It’s Worth It!

Nothing worth having comes easy. Know what Akwasi Frimpong, a Ghanaian skeleton athlete, learned in his tour of Whistler, Canada.

All of us have challenges to overcome in life, and sometimes, it’s quite easy and simple to achieve our desired outcome. You don’t like your job? Quit it. You’re unhappy with how you look? Start working now to attain your desired shape. You think you’re underperforming? Work harder!

However, there are situations in which change doesn’t come easy. There are circumstances that demand change, but reconditioning your behaviors and lifestyle becomes a challenge in itself. In such moments, it is important for you to remember that nothing worth having comes easy. If you have set ambitious goals for yourself, you should be ready to compromise what you love the most. If you want to achieve something extraordinary, you should be ready to go to any length to reach your target.

So if you have a dream, do not hesitate in chasing it. You will be far happier down the road if you make the effort today to work toward a different, better future.

When I set the objective to represent Ghana for the first time in skeleton in 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, I knew that I will be required to work hard. I will be required to run on the most intimidating tracks to prepare myself for the unanticipated, which is why I travelled to Whistler, Canada. I worked longer and harder, and remained successful at representing my country in races one, two, three, and four of North American Cup. My tour of Canada ended on a positive note and now, I am back in the States, but my athletic routine remains the same.

Success is Not Just About Winning

Akwasi Frimpong, a Ghanaian skeleton athlete, recently celebrated a small victory in his journey to the 2022 Winter Olympic Games. Know how it helped him feel better and more motivated.

What is success? I was asked this seemingly simple question by a young athlete recently. To many of us, success is about achieving that BIG goal we have set for ourselves, but, as a matter of fact, this is not a true definition of success. In my opinion, success is a collection of small victories and disappointing setbacks.

Yes. The great victory that will appear so simple tomorrow when you have reached your target, is, in fact, a result of a series of small victories that went unnoticed. In the quest for success, it’s common for many of us to overlook the small achievements and stay focused on the big goal. While focus and determination is important to achieve something valuable, it’s equally important not to lose hope and get demotivated, and to make it possible, it’s important that you celebrate your small achievements.

Recently, Ghana’s skeleton team qualified for the third and fourth race of North American Cup in Whistler. While my runs were not smooth, my hard work paid off and I was provided this unique opportunity to represent my country in the upcoming races. These, for me, are small victories in my journey to the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing. I am proud to acknowledge these small achievements as I know that they will eventually add up to something great!

To keep going, I need your best wishes and your support. If you support my mission of representing Ghana for the first time in skeleton in Winter Olympics, leave a comment or share the post with your social circle.
