The Bevan James Eyles Show - The Fitness Behaviour Podcast

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you how I’m working through a back injury.

My main aims during this time are to:

  • Get back to normal in the wisest way possible
  • Minimise the damage that could be done during this time e.g. not putting on unnecessary weight due to unfocused eating.

While these are just a couple of my focuses, this time has also reinforced the importance of the self-development work I’ve done over the last 10 years.

You see, if I had this injury in my early thirties, I would probably have felt…

  • Lost and insecure
  • That I had to keep exercising in ways that would work against my injury getting better
  • A threat to my life and career

Luckily for me when I was thirty, I realised that I was too one-dimensional as a person.

I was amazing at exercise but that was about it.

At this time I realised I needed to develop new sides of myself, to develop lots of ‘esteem points’.

Now that I’m in a place where I can’t exercise how I like to, these different ‘esteem points’ make it easier for me to make the best decisions around my injury.

In this week’s video I share how I discovered that I needed to develop myself, what I did after that discovery, and how it’s helping me right now.
