There is no growth in being comfortable. But being comfortable is what most of us feel @ their best. The last couple of weeks I came to figure out once again that needing, wanting or waiting for external forces to kick me in the but is not going to happen. So I’m opening myself up to face different things that make me feel (very) uncomfortable.
Like not pressing that snooze button when the alarm goes off. Cycling to where I need to be. Swimming, using the car less and walking to the grocery store. But what has this to do with powerlifting you may think? Well even changing my grip, stance in the gym and wearing other shoes. Why? Just because I can, and It will introduce me to new things to realize and experience.
Of course I will not do all things named above at once, but for sure I’ll be specific on what I will focus myself on the coming period. Letting go of the old….making room for the new. Back it up and try again.
Sometimes you have to do transitional jobs/ things to get to where you want to go. But that doesn’t mean that it has to kill your dream or the path that you are on. Act the way you want to feel and soon you feel the way you want to act is what a wise individual once told me. I am willing to experience if things really work that way – for me -. Rome wasn’t build in ONE day. Neither am I.
Don’t wish for less problems but wish for more skills !!
Funfact: I am Four weeks out of competing at the West European Championships and picking up Equipped lifting again.
Have a nice week everybody.
