No matter what your goals are at CrossFit Legacy, or in life, these words can offer some insight encouragement, and focus during some of the more difficult times.
Stay the course to your goals and your aspirations.
It’s going to take longer than you originally thought.
You are going to need to invest more effort than you ever would have liked to exert.
You are going to have to endure more pain than you planned.
Face more failed attempts than you thought would have been necessary.
Experience more setbacks than you rationally and logically should have ever had to go through.
There’s going to be many times where your effort will not be rewarded, or even acknowledged.
Yes, at times, it’s going to suck.
You need to get through the suck.
Success always lags hard work and effort.
When you have put in more effort than reward received, you have to double down on belief, confidence and enthusiasm.
You have to continue to work yourself to the brink of collapse and tears.
You need to be able to do this indefinitely.
You need to have faith in the process.
For this part of the process is the final filtering system to creating greatness.
As your reward is not being unjustifiably held from you, it is actually being deferred for you.
Stored up, to be given to you in a lump sum, rather than in incremental pieces.
At this point in the process it is more important what you do not do, rather than what you do.
In order to receive the reward of your hard work.
The reward you deserve.
The reward you have earned –
You need to be incapable of discouragement.
