The task has been set.  The test is there.  You have done whatever prepping you have done up to this point and you are going to hit it in a little bit.  What's the next thing that starts to happen?  The voices.  They start to talk.  Its NEVER positive voices that seem to come from deep within your brain.  Its almost as if there is some other person in there talking crap.  Saying you are too sore, you arent ready, this will hurt so bad, you will be so tired, you wont win, you wont be able to do this movement or that thing, etc etc etc.  There are multiple things you can do to shut this stupid irrational voice up.  But, the main thing is to drown it out.  You may need to listen to music.  Something that is loud enough and something you like, or will put you in a very positive state of mind.  This usually works if you have to wait a while before you actually get to do the task.  If you are in the middle of the test or the task, then you will have to combat the voices with your own mantra.  A mantra is a positive phrase.  Its short and direct but you can repeat it to yourself over and over, even while you are exhausted or in the heat of battle.  And finally the last way is to just jump in as fast as you can.  Lets say you are at home and you are intending to go to the gym but you start to hear those voices talking you out of going.  Long day, tired, hungry, kids, garbage needs to be taken out, etc.  But you know these are just excuses and you are just being a weeny.  Beat this by not even getting into the conversation with your head and just go.  Stand up, walk out, drive to the gym and workout.  It may suck to do it, but you know when you are done you wil feel so much better.  Those voices arent positive.  They arent helpful.  They wont get you where you want to be.  Crush them and move forward! :)

FEEL THE BURN!!!
