Failure is inevitable in life. None of us are perfect. Not one of us. Whether we are business execs, athletes, warehouse workers, clerks, waiters, we will have bad days and we will fail.
Likewise in our fitness goals we can be prone to failure. There are days we will give into our mind convincing us not to go run or not go to the gym.
There is a poster at the gym I go to that is a long saying from Michael Jordan talking about all his missed shots. He lists an enourmous amount of missed shots, he says how many games he lost for his team by taking the last game determining shot and missing.
But do we remember Michael Jordan for his missed shots? No. We remember him as a great athlete. But why? He messed up a lot?
But the point, he kept trying, he kept striving to make his game better. He didn’t let his failure or short-comings keep him from getting back on the court and showing everyone up the next time.
If you fail if you fall short of your goal, don’t worry about it, get off your butt and try all the harder. After all, we fall so that we learn how to get back up.
So stop giving into the failure mentality, stop getting depressed because you aren’t hitting your goals just as you would like. Keep trying, keep going, and keep pressing towards the goal. You can own this.
If you have any questions when it comes to fitness, or goals, or nutrition, leave a comment or send me a message, I would be more than happy to talk about any fitness questions.
