Conventional wisdom seems to be that fame, money, and the good life can come overnight. The success of tech entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley seems to happen from the thin air, just last week Facebook bought Whatsupp for $19 Billion.  Even the reality singing competitions (American Idol, The Voice etc) show how one person can go from nothing to fame.   But the reality is that these people work hard to get where they are, we just don’t see it.  The truly good life—which comes from reaching your best and possessing a sense of fulfillment—cannot happen simply because you want it. You can’t pull it out of a hat; it can’t happen overnight.

Therefore, if you only give half of yourself, you only become half of who you’re supposed to be. We all need practice, and the more we practice the better we become at something and the more progress we make.  HGX is a great place to practice to give it your all.   If you give it your all, you will get a PR, that PR will make you feel awesome, that feeling will only strengthen your will.  That feeling is transferrable to other areas of your life, including work.   So give it your all, start at the gym.

It is estimated that the average human being has around 50,000 thoughts per day.  That is a hell of a lot of thoughts, right?  Some of those are positive and productive others are going to be negative, angry, fearful, and worrisome.  Indeed the important question in terms of becoming more peaceful isn’t whether you are going to have negative thoughts – you are – it is what you chose to do with what you have. 

We really have two tow options when it comes to dealing with negative thoughts.  We can analyze them, ponder, think though, study, and think some more or you can ignore them altogether.   This later option is far more effective.   So when you are having negative thoughts…  just ignore them and downplay them, they will go away if you don’t pay attention to them.  CrossFit is a great way to practice dealing with negative thoughts.   When you think you can’t do something, try again, the PR you want to set, mastering double unders, or getting that muscle up starts in your head.
