When you are in a workout and you are getting to the point where you want to stop, what keeps you going?  Usually, it's you talking to yourself.  Telling yourself to keep going or that you are ok.  The short mantra-like statements are easy to repeat and use to drown out the "other" voices and negative comments happening in your head.  If you allow yourself to get into a conversation with yourself about how bad it is, then you will actually get lost in the justifications of stopping or slowing down.   This conversation is the worst thing you can do because it literally distracts you from the task at hand.  I think it's relatively for people to understand this idea.  However, the same thing goes for regular life struggles.  There will be times when things seem WAY out of wack.  You will feel buried in all kinds of weird emotional issues, financial issues, relationship issues etc.  It will be so easy to try to figure it out by getting into a big discussion with yourself.  Sure, there may be some things to sort out but for the most part, the justifications of slowing down, easing up, or just quitting will come flying out and again you will be distracted and not be able to quickly make the changes you need to make.  Use your short mantra-like statements to help drive you through.  they need to be short repeatable statements or phrases that keep you moving ahead and driving in the right direction.  The more you repeat the mantra, the less you will hear those other voices telling you it's too hard or to stop.  You be the one to control what and how you do what you do.  Don't let the negative voices make your decisions!!    :)
