“Why is it that some people are more successful than others?”
What do successful people do different that others don't?
To be successful in life is no secret. Millionaires can tell you exactly how to make a million dollars. Strong guys can tell you exactly how to get strong. Great CrossFitters can explain to you exactly how to get great at CrossFit.
So if that is the case then why aren't all of us rich, ripped and living all of our wildest dreams?!?!
Its the priniciple of knowing vs. doing? We know what to do (or can at least learn how), so why don't we do it?
How do we change from knowing and to doing?
There are 3 things that I learned from John Maxwell, that need to happen for someone to change for the better.
Hurt enough you have to: CrossFit is HARD! You get sore. You are challenged physically, mentally and emotionally to push yourself to your potential. Imagine when you start CrossFit you are an old beat up Honda Accord and you are being pushed to train like you are now a brand new Ferrarri, not an easy task. You have to have some real goals. You have to be fed up with yourself and want better. It's gotta hurt on the inside for you to push yourself to be better. Because CrossFit is going to challenge you and see what you are made of.
You learn enough you want to: Call it an epiphany. Call it divine intervention. Call it becoming empowered. Some of us our fortunate enough to see the light and not only figure out how CrossFit and Paleo works but how they finally figure out how it works in their lives. Once you do, you won't even think about going back to your old ways.
Receive enough you are able to: Through the HARD work, consistency and self sacrifice you figure out this thing really works! It happens when your first pullup, first muscle up, first RX'd WOD or your crush a WOD you thought 'used to' be impossible and you want more! It is amazing to see the transformation in someone when this happens. When this happens you find that this is where the journey to ELITE FITness really begins and you can achieve anything you want too.
