Today I found myself replying to a Facebook message. When I replied I realized, EVERYONE who is in some type of fitness / training/ sports at any level should see this:
Awesome Female Client: “I know you don’t like negativity, but I sucked today! I don’t know what my problem was! I think it was the hardest workout for me so far …”
ME: You think you sucked today? Really? Actually as I see it, you were met with a harder workout than you have exp…erienced before & you stood up to it the VERY BEST you could. Be happy that you struggled, because it shows that you are putting every ounce of effort into your performance & with that continued effort, your “struggle” will lessen & your ability will grow.
Tell me why you sucked?
That’s a general statement. What do you mean by “I sucked today.”
WHAT EXACTLY “SUCKED” TODAY? WHY EXACTLY DID I “SUCK” TODAY? Could you not keep up? Did your muscles burn? Was it hard to maintain form? What makes you suck?
Then after you answer those questions – ask yourself this…..Are these answers things that CAN improve?
Are these answers things that WILL improve? Chances are, the answer is… F@#K YES!
I’ll tell you when you “SUCK”…
- You suck when you don’t try.
- You suck when you back off because of laziness.
- You suck when you know you can do more, but decide to take a break anyway.
- You suck when you don’t care.
- You suck when you are doing this for anyone but yourself.
Long story short. You don’t suck. Instead, you are BALLS DEEP in the process & you are going head to head with challenges every time you train. As long as you meet them head-on with EVERYTHING YOU HAVE TO GIVE.
YOU DONT SUCK!
