Many of you know that Lisbeth Darsh has one of my favorite CrossFit Blogs out there at CrossFit

Her posts are generally shorter, but from the heart and effective. The one today made me stop and think more than usual, and I wanted to share it with you guys. Click here for the direct link to her blog, or just check it out below.


Pay Attention

Good times tell you nothing. Adversity reveals.

Think about it — in CrossFit and life. Think about your last PR in the gym: what do you remember?

It felt great! Awesome! I’m so strong/fast/quick/tough/etc.

How about your last failure?

Confusion, hurt, and maybe: I wasn’t quick with my elbows. I didn’t jump with the bar. I shouldn’t have stopped so much during those pull-ups. Got to fix my feet.

Which experience taught you more?

Don’t fear the tough times. Let them come. Life must unfold. Be smart, bear down, and ride it out. And learn so you can do better next time.
