Dare to Compare…
|Which is the better Looking Post WOD face???|
In your FITness, Career and the other important areas of your life it is easy to compare what you want to what others have…Or is it?
“I wish I could do as many ____ as he/she can!”
“Why can’t I go as fast in the ____as he/she can?!”
Also, in life and career:
-“I want to be rich and famous”
-“Why can’t I catch a break like, _____ can”
We are all fascinated by celebrities, athletes and people of stature and the achievements they have accomplished. Even your friends you CrossFit with or people you admire that are not necessarily famous but have achieved FITness or career levels that you ‘wish’ to attain. It is easy to compare them to our personal achievements and beat ourselves up for not being in a similar position.
But are you doing a FULL comparison???
If you haven’t put in the blood, sweat and tears they have, can you honestly compare yourself to them?…Hell NO! What do you expect?
If you want the success and income of your Millionaire Next Door, how does your resume stack up compared to his/her? Have you put in the hours they have? What connections have you build? Do you put in the extra work to do what it takes….. Do you even KNOW what it takes to get to the Next Level?
If you are upset after a workout that had lets say, ring pushups, and the person next to you crushed you and your time, how does your CrossFit resume compare to theirs? How many WODs have you done compared to them? How sound is your nutrition? Do you work on your weaknesses? Etc…
If you want to hit a golf ball like Tiger Woods, how does your weekly approach to your golf game compare to his?
