Today I found myself replying to a Facebook message. When I replied I realized, EVERYONE who is in some type of fitness / training/ sports at any level should see this:
Awesome Female Client: “I know you don’t like negativity, but I sucked today! I don’t know what my problem was! I think it was the hardest workout for me so far …”
ME: You think you sucked today? Really? Actually as I see it, you were met with a harder workout than you have exp…erienced before & you stood up to it the VERY BEST you could. Be happy that you struggled, because it shows that you are putting every ounce of effort into your performance & with that continued effort, your “struggle” will lessen & your ability will grow.
Tell me why you sucked?
That’s a general statement. What do you mean by “I sucked today.”
WHAT EXACTLY “SUCKED” TODAY? WHY EXACTLY DID I “SUCK” TODAY?
Could you not keep up? Did your muscles burn? Was it hard to maintain form? What makes you suck?
Then after you answer those questions – ask yourself this…..Are these answers things that CAN improve? Are these answers things that WILL improve?
Chances are, the answer is… F@#K YES!
I’ll tell you when you “SUCK”…
You suck when you don’t try.
You suck when you back off because of laziness.
You suck when you know you can do more, but decide to take a break anyway.
You suck when you don’t care.
You suck when you are doing this for anyone but yourself.
Long story short. You don’t suck. Instead, you are BALLS DEEP in the process & you are going head to head with challenges every time you train. As long as you meet them head on with EVERYTHING YOU HAVE TO GIVE. YOU DONT SUCK!
