Have you ever beaten yourself up when you’re trying to learn something new? When you didn’t learn it right away? Or when you didn’t finish a workout as quickly as you think you should have? When you didn’t keep up with the rest of the group?
We talked about whether this provides a source of Frustration or Fuel for motivation in the past. A lot of people pointed out that while it’s frustrating to fall short, it can also provide a hunger and desire to do better. I think this happens best when you hold a deep-down belief that you can overcome the hurdle in front of you and have a willingness to put forth the time and energy to do so.
If you doubt these things, you may begin questioning whether the effort is worth it, or whether meeting your goal is even possible. This is when the frustration becomes nothing more than way to beat yourself up.
When you’ve begun to doubt yourself, how have you maintained the belief that could meet your goals? How have you become convinced that you could do something, when at first you didn’t believe it at all?
Give yourself that dig down deep mentality. Instead of beating yourself up, think of the accomplishments that you have made since you joined crossfit!
This video was very inspiring for me, I hope it has the same effect on you.
