Lisbeth strikes again.

If you don’t know what that means yet, welcome to my blog. CrossFit Lisbeth’s author, Lisbeth Darsh, is amazing.

Simple message. Yet SO powerful and true. Regardless of your role at work, at home or in the gym… think about this.

Every Single Time you interact with someone in your life… please just TRY to think about this message.

Teaching Moments ~ By Lisbeth

Teaching moments aren’t easy, for the teacher or the student.

You might be the member, thinking “Oh man, he’s picking on me.” Or you might be the coach, thinking “How the heck can I get this point across? How can I get her to change that movement?”

But you’re both in a situation that could be so illuminating, if you allow it to be.

Let go of your ego and your fears. Let go of the idea that you have to be the best in every single moment of your life. Open your heart, open your mind . . . and learn.

Apply the student mentality everywhere you can today – just for a day — and see what happens. There are a lot more experts in your world — on so many subjects — than you realize.

They are in your gym, in the coffeeshop, in your workplace, and in your neighborhood. And often the loudest voice is not the most educated, so learn to listen to the quiet ones too. Seek out those who would share their secrets. Become enraptured by the truthtellers and just smile at the blowhards. But learn. Always learn.
