” Work hard in silence. Let success be your noise. “- Frank Ocean
This quote can be applied to fitness and any area of your life. I’ve always enjoyed stay quiet about my goals and letting the results speak for themselves. Sometimes it does pay off to tell others your goals because they can help you get on track if you start to slip off. There are other times that sharing your goals can cause more harm than good.
Sometimes even well meaning people can say things that might cause you to doubt yourself. You can still be confident in the achievement of your goals but now that voice of self-doubt will be louder than normal. Those people might not believe you can achieve the goal or they might be pushing their own self-doubts onto you. In case this does happen, you can try using affirmations to boost your self-confidence.
Another reason I like to let the results speak for themselves is because talking about takes energy away from what you’re trying to achieve. The time you spend talking about the goal, you can be using to take action. When you find yourself doing more taking than action taking, ask yourself if you genuinely desire the goal or you want to achieve it to impress others. You can say or post anything you want but nothing will be louder than your results.
