“I always felt that my greatest asset was not my physical ability, it was my mental ability.” -Bruce Jenner

One of the lessons reinforced for us at the 2015 CrossFit Games is the concept of:

Thoughts –> Words –> Actions –> Character –> Destiny

Your destiny, in other words what you are capable of attaining, is determined by your character, which is formed by your actions, which are molded by your words, which are grown with your thoughts. We had some physical holes in our game this year, but none as influential as the holes in our collective mental game. The mental game is something that must be developed over time. Some people grow up with it and begin to cultivate it from a young age. Others must pick it up later on in life. Regardless, the best athletes and teams have it.

For this team to reach their next level, they will need to grow into themselves and develop a collective attitude of winning. One that does not care abut the task at hand; that only finds out how to dominate it. The pieces and potential are there – now they will have to reach deep into themselves, stare their fear and doubt in the face and tell them to fuck off. This team and its athletes are bound to do great things. They will continue to sharpen themselves against each other and against the competition that comes their way.

Thoughts will influence the individual. Words will influence the group.

I have always waited until the end of the year to assess and evaluate how my year went in terms of physical improvement, goals and success. I find myself more hesitant to “wait” for the good stuff. It can be hard to see progress if you aren’t tracking and journaling it along the way. Today I was thrilled to see improvements across the chart other than my DL. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Seems like we are always waiting “for the right time”... Waiting to wear that outfit for the perfect occasion. Waiting for someone to get home. Waiting for something to go on sale. Waiting for that call or text back. Waiting to make that road trip or big decision. Waiting til your finances are all worked out. Waiting to tell someone how you feel about them.
I’m basically done with waiting. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
January 2017 I attached myself to the word “Persevere” and I had no idea what that word would mean to me through out the year. I look back now and I am proud that I have continued along the course even in the face of adversity and difficulty. Life doesn’t always go the way you want, think, or expect...but if open your heart wide enough you see that you still have much to be grateful for. I’m so thankful for the Friendship, Camaraderie, and Coaching I have received @karhustrength @coachwinchester
