"The bitterness of defeat creates the sweetness of victory..."
When I first started CrossFit, during a 400 meter run, I'd be thinking...'maybe I'll just do one round'....but this time I didn't quit. Even at the Elevated Fitness comp, I was so nervous about making the finals that I debated on backing out, using my hurt back as an excuse...but I didn't.
And now...just 3 days ago, on my way to the CrossFit cert, I 'thought' about just not showing up....but I did. And even though I knew that maybe I would'nt pass the test, I still followed through. And no...I didn't pass the test...and I'm ok, I'm still alive and breathing. And when the opportunity comes around, I'll try again.
"The bitterness of defeat creates the sweetness of victory..." Crossfit has helped me overcome the fear of failing...not by winning, but by giving me the strength and self confidence. I have learned I can do hard things! So bring it on because I will be victorious!
