Brian and Jen are physically and mentally strong. Brian recently completed the Bridger Ridge Run and Jen, along with Meg and Dugan, finished a Spartan Beast.
Physical strength is the goal of most CrossFitters. But, what about mental strength? Just like its physical analog, mental strength requires training and practice. Have you stopped and listened to the story you tell yourself just before the coach says, "3, 2, 1, Go?" Are the words running through your head positive or do they reflect your self doubt? What if you told yourself a different story? What if you approached the workout with curiosity? What if you let it be a great adventure, with your own path to discovery of what you're capable of doing today?
Our thoughts and words are incredibly powerful. The story we tell ourselves can set us up to be a total badass, humming with tiger blood. Or we can convince ourselves that we are no good, plodding along through life like Eeyore.
We are training to be fire breathers, and fire breathers have an indomitable spirit. An indomitable spirit is impossible to subdue or defeat! Believe it, think it, and you will become it!
Today before your workout. Listen to the story you're telling yourself. Then imagine you are talking to your best friend. Tell yourself the same story you would tell your best friend. You can do this. Give it your best effort today and you're going to feel so great when this is over.
