Honestly – that is not true. I do not always win or am number one in everything I do. Sometimes I stop trying or I come in dead last. But either way when it comes to this fitness thing I do not always feel as if I have to “win” against someone. I typically compete with myself. I test myself to see how far I can push a weight or how fast I can actually sprint. I still haven’t captured my sprint on a recording but I plan to. Can I mimic it on a treadmill or would I just pass out trying?
Either way when it comes to a workout and getting stronger – the key is actually to FAIL! I know counterintuitive right? I mean who really wants to fail? It reminds you have not achieving, reaching a goal or disappointing someone – mainly yourself. But when it comes to working out, building muscle, building endurance and strength – the key to all of that is failure. Failure pushes your body to the brink that it is forced to recover but once it does – it rebuilds bigger, stronger, with enhanced agility and endurance. That is a good thing. One day you notice you fail running up a hill. With persistence and consistence you then notice you are sprinting up that hill barely out of breath.
That is all because you failed so when it comes to fitness – to WIN is actually to FAIL and with the right mindset and attitude you will not be hurt or devastated by failing because you know it is making you stronger.
