When is the last time you took time to reflect....

In CrossFit and in life, people talk about where they want to go. People talk about what they want to accomplish. What "goats" they want to slaughter. But when I say to those people "Do you remember when you started and you couldn't even (fill-in-the-blank)?" I get a funny look. It's a look that says "why are you bringing that up? Are you trying to embarrass me? I don't want to think about my former, weaker self." The answer is no. I am not trying to make you feel bad about where you started, nor am I trying to make you blush. It's important to take a little time to reflect on how far you've come -- in the past year, 6 months, week or even your progress during a workout.

When you feel overwhelmed by all you want to accomplish, get frustrated or when you want to just straight up quit, recognizing your progress can keep you motivated. It makes the future journey feel that much more tangible. Think about what you have accomplished so far. Did you think it was possible six months ago? Either way, you worked for it and earned it. Don't forget to take pride in that.

Once you dreamed of being a superhero... now you are well on your way to becoming one.
