Too often we listen to our body or mind when they say, “ok, enough is enough”. I am here to change what you listen to. Your heart holds your drive, your purpose and your motivation. Don’t let your mind or body tell you when your done. Let your heart do the talking.
We all know Monday can be the least desirable day of the week, right? Well no need to fear. Monday Movement Motivation is back in full force and I want to help you gear up for your week!
Let’s talk goals today. We are into the February and some of us may already be off track when it comes to our goals. On the other hand, some of us may not have even written a single goal day. Regardless of which route you choose, you still have to want more from life and if you don’t decide to take charge now, I hope you are in love with your life right now.
Check out today’s video and let me know what you are going to do TODAY to get back on the bus!
Create Your Legacy
Last week I posted an old picture of myself during a CrossFit Competition in Dallas. The event was an atlas stone carry and toss over a bar. The atlas stone in the picture was a little over 220lbs and it was by far the heaviest atlas I had ever picked up. Tim Bougie, the photographer, caught this picture at a moment that only a true professional could catch. That moment being the point in time when all of your strength is gone and the only thing you have left is your determination.
In the end, the attempt was failed. I took the stone all the way to the bar but was unable to get it over. Although in the end I was far from 1st place, defeat was not on my mind. Allowing myself to get to a point where only heart can drive you is where I like to go and that alone was a win for me.
What about you? Do you allow yourself to go so far that only sheer determination can get you through? I am not talking about in workouts but in life. Too often we surrender too soon. We allow pain and failure to blind us of what we are really capable of doing.
When was the last time you ran off of determination? Was it recent? Or maybe never? If it has been a while, I suggest finding something you are passionate about and emerging yourself in it. So much so that in the end, once you have given everything you’ve got, all you have left is determination.
Even with the new year upon us some may be experiencing a time when life is not everything you wanted it to be. If you are going through this remember the “fall” will be short and forgotten, but you have to get back up and fight your way back to the top.
As the New Year comes around many of us, our friends and our family will begin to set goals and create visions of what 2013 will look like, which is great. My hope is that you will stay committed to those resolutions and work hard for them during the entire year. Because if you wan’t it bad enough, nothing should stop you.
For me, this year is about 2 big things. 1. Getting people off the bus that do not support or want to be a part of my journey 2. Going from a get to give mindset.
Check out the last Monday Movement Motivation of 2012 and join me on my journey in 2013!
