Sled drags are on the menu today. It's easier to stay committed when you've got a great tribe supporting you!
We continue our study of The Invictus Mindset by looking at our commitment. The first Pillar of The Invictus Mindset is Goal Setting and the three legs of the first pillar are focus, motivation and commitment. We've explored focus and motivation, and this week we look at the last leg of the pillar - commitment.
In The Invictus Mindset, author CJ Martin asks, "...would you run through the rain if your program called for you to do so?" Would you reverse engineer inconveniences? Would prep your meals? Would you pack your gym bag the night before? Would you schedule your gym time and guard that time? Would you drink La Croix instead of beer? Would you order the burger without the bun?
Being committed means you will make some sacrifices to achieve your goals. Some goals require bigger sacrifices than others. Your level of commitment to your goal is your willingness to make different choices. It's your willingness to do something a different way.
Once you're clear on why you want to achieve something, and you understand your motivation, it becomes much easier to stay committed.
Let's put all of the last three week's of lessons together and actually make some goals. Here is the CrossFit Invictus Vision Statement and Goal Setting Sheet. Print one out for each of your goals. Share your goals in the comments or on our Facebook group. We want to support your efforts!
Happy Birthday Christine!
We hope your special day is filled with love, laughter and a heavy sled!
