Always move forward

"You may be on the right track, but if you just sit there you'll get run over."

If you are not growing you are dying.  Even if you are doing the right things, you must continually challenge yourself and grow.  Find your weakness and test it, build on it, make it your strength.  For these reasons, we have decided to do Selection.  For these same reasons, I decided to do Kokoro, Alan decided to run an Ironman, Ted decided to move to England for a year, someone else went to night school to learn Chinese.  Life is enjoyed the most when you are not comfortable, when you are pushing to the edge of anything you have done before. 

We can not always be traveling the world, or doing a crucible event like Selection or Kokoro, but our daily mental and physical training can take us to places within our selves that we have never been before.  We dont have to stay there long and it doesnt interfere with our everyday tasks or responsibilities, but the benefit is sometimes just as great as if we had traveled across the ocean to a strange and foreign land.

100 burpees for time can take you there.  You can see places that on first glance you do not want to go, but once there, you become more comfortable and travel through with no worries.  When it is over, celebrate the small victory of entering the pain cave and slaying the dragon that lived there.  For the rest of your day, have the confidence to know you can do anything, no matter how uncomfortable...just get in there, get started and it will become comfortable.


"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

-Martin Luther King, Jr.
