2. LEARN TO APPRECIATE SMALL VICTORIES
‘It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey’
It’s sometimes hard to enjoy the present moment when all we want is the end result.
Crossfit makes us mentally stronger by teaching us to calm down and appreciate small victories. Because there’s no way, no matter how athletic we are, that we’ll ever be able to do a Chest to bar before knowing how to do a jumping pull-up, a strict pull-up, a kipping pull-up with a green, blue, red, yellow band and finally with no band at all. And each time we move on to the next step we feel good and we know we’re on the right track.
Knowing that, we should be able to transfer these moments of appreciations into our daily lives. We just need to learn how to set smaller steps and understand that without them we’ll never reach the top.
