Life can be very simple if we make it that way, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. Life is easy to move through while being complacent and settling with how things are. We aren’t challenging that status quo of our life and we aren’t pushing to improve ourselves in any way. We can’t allow ourselves to settle, we always need to be moving forward.
One of the difficult things we can do in our evaluation of life is visualization.
- Think ahead to 50, 40, or even 10 years from now.
- What does your life look at 80 years old?
- What’s your legacy that you will leave behind?
The legacy you leave behind could be kids, grandkids, money, friends, a business, a building, etc. Whatever it is, you need to make sure that you are content with what that legacy looks like.
Another challenge in the way of a better life is the avoidance of a tough decision or conversation with a partner, spouse, employee or coworker. Here’s another tactic we can take that will give us insight on what action to take for these tough situations.
- Think of three things in your life that you are avoiding because you know it’s going to be difficult.
- Now, form a plan of action to take care of these three issues.
Yes, it’s going to be difficult, and it’s easier said than done, but it IS simple. It should also feel uncomfortable to think about these three things. That’s why you’re putting it off right? But as soon as these three things are taken care of, doors will open to new opportunities that weren’t seen before.
As cliché as the saying is, “if it doesn’t challenge us, it doesn’t change us”. There is truth in this saying because in order to grow, we must work through the hardship before us. Honestly, that’s why CrossFit is drawing massive amounts of people closer together.
Through fitness, we can overcome physical obstacles and accomplish goals that we thought were too hard in the first place. But, we set out to work hard on these goals and make the tough decision to come into the box every week so slowly improve our health and wellness. For some, the decision to start a membership at a gym and take control of their health is one of the three answers for the tactic above.
We owe it to ourselves to never waste the time we have. We don’t have all the time in the world; we only have some of it. It’s on us to make the best of it.
