The Worst 4 Letter Word In CrossFit And Life!!

The Worst 4 Letter Word In CrossFit And Life!!

Can’t

I can’t do this. I can’t do that. I can’t. I can’t. I can’t.

 

The word “Can’t” needs to be eliminated from everyone’s vocabulary like, yesterday! We spend entirely way too much time focusing on the things we do not have or things we can’t control. This creates a lot of negative thoughts, a terrible mindset, and way too much pressure.

 

Life isn’t linear. Not everything is going to be laid out for you. If you spend your time waiting for perfect conditions then nothing will ever happen the way you want it to. We hear all the time…

 

“I have to do THIS to have this.” NO. Be the thing you want to have first and then order will line up.

 

“I want to weigh 135 pounds.”

“I’ll be happy with my body when I weigh 135 pounds.”

 

Now approach it a different way and watch your goal become a reality.

 

“I love my body just the way it is.”

You are now confident in the way you look and more dedicated to staying healthy.

 

Set a goal you have control over. Saying you want to lose 50 pounds, Back Squat 400 pounds, or get your first pull-up is out of your control, Until you come up with a plan. You don’t have control over the outcome but you do have control over your behavior.

 

Want to lose 50 pounds? Make your goal to eat your vegetables, drink a gallon of water a day, or get 8 hours of sleep. Those are things in your control and will put you on the path to achieving your goal.

 

Want pull-ups? What can you do every day to make sure you reach this goal? What’s your plan? For a hypothetical example: Make your goal to do 5 sets of 20 rings rows 3 days a week. Now you are on the path to getting your first pull-up even though that is not the immediate goal.
