Thank you to all of the CrossFit Kilo fans for their support over the last few weeks. Our season ended as a complete shit show but it is now behind and we will move forward. If you are less than perfect at things in life, resetting and starting at the basics again is your best option. Moving forward and leaving the past in the past is what I am going to touch on today.
Everyone has set backs, some worse than others. Setbacks will occur in life, sport, work, and relationships. Those that are capable of defeating the setback seem to be more successful. Using it as a tool to learn from and figuring out how to defeat it will allow you to move forward. Sometimes I think the best way to defeat it is to reset. When things start looking shitty, it is best to go back to the basics. Relate this to a bum shoulder caused by a less than perfect overhead squat. I have 3 choices in a matter such as this, either I push through it and continue to trash my shoulder (major setback), quit working out (major setback), minimize the use of my shoulder and star with a PVC pipe again once the pain subsides (minor setback). This is obviously a very minor example but to some this can cause a huge setback in fitness that will even carry over into other aspects of life. About everything in life is under your control. Maybe not every incident, but your reaction is completely under you control. Like mark Schwab says, “it is simple, not easy”.
If you let the itsy bitsy problems turn into massive ones and you dwell on negative occurrences then your ass is going to be unhappy for most of your life. Let it go, leave it behind, reset, and you will come back even better.
