Workout of the Day (WOD)

Wednesday 3/9/11

I'm not going to post the top Rx times today because I want to remind people it's fun to push yourselves vs. others, compare times and enjoy the fun social competition in the gym.  However, I want to make sure you keep it in perspective of why we are here:  To get fit and accomplish our individual goals.

“One of the marks of excellent people is that they never compare
themselves with others. They only compare themselves with themselves
and with their past accomplishments and future potential.”
    -Brian Tracy

"Winners compare their achievements with their goals, while losers compare their achievements with those of other people” -Nido Qubein

A person with good sportsmanship never compares themselves to others in a negative way. Comparing yourself can be a dangerous thing! If you always compare yourself to people who are better than you, you will start to feel like a failure and lose the confidence that you need in order to become better. If you regularly compare yourself to people who performing better than, you can become proud and lazy, and start to show unkindness to those around you.

If you really want to be an excellent CrossFitter, you will never ‘compare’ yourself with anyone else. Instead, you will stay focused on YOU. To do this, think about what you have accomplished in the past, and what you want to become in the future. You build your confidence by comparing yourself now with where you were months ago, and realizing how far you have come. You also inspire yourself to keep working hard by looking at where you are right now, and comparing that with where you want to be in one or two years from now. If you regularly do these two things, you will be powered by your own confidence and motivation to be the very best that you can be!

Enjoy the fun competitiveness that CrossFit has but keep it in perspective, stay focused on your growth and your future goals.

Work hard and have fun.
