September 2nd WOD

New Day...New Challenge...New Victory

Everyday a NEW challenge is Everyday a NEW victory...how awesome is that?!? Everyday you can challenge yourself to do something new and be victorious...every single day.

Many people do not challenge themselves out of fear. Fear of failure, defeat, fear that the journey will be too difficult, fear of simply the unknown. Take that fear, drink it down and take on the challenge anyway.

Victory is the reward for discipline, dedication and the courage to take on that fear, accept the challenge and eventually succeed.

My new workout/training program is a bit of an adjustment for me. I am lifting in ways that I have never done, more like an endurance athlete training for a big race. My objectives for my next bodybuilding show are different and with that objective, I have to remain open minded and take on this new challenge and training style.

Yesterday, I got a virtual face slap from my trainer when I was lifting too heavy during my warmup set. I trust Andrew to coach me towards success and with that I have to lay down everything that "I think I know" and take on this new training challenge with confidence and trust.

How are you challenging yourself everyday? If you are not challenging yourself daily, then ask yourself when was the last time you accepted a challenge? Can you remember? If not, then tomorrow is a good day to let go of the fear that is holding you back, give up the excuses and take on a challenge. Everyday victory can be yours. Today, I was victorious. Were you?
