I always hear people say "I don't want to do it because I don't like competition" or "I'm not a very competitive person". Guess what, life is competition. Even if you aren't competing with someone else directly, you are competing with yourself or who you were yesterday or who you are trying to become. Even if you were on a desert island all by yourself, you would have to compete with mother nature for survival. Competition is life. Period. But it gives so many people anxiety. They are afraid of losing. They are afraid that either they will think less of themselves or others will think about it. They are afraid of testing themselves to see if they are really capable. They are afraid to get hurt either physically, emotionally, financially, or mentally. Of course, no one likes to lose. But if you can reframe what is happening, then it will help you to have less anxiety and more success. If you lost, it doesn't mean you are a loser. It means someone was better than you that day. Or maybe it means you aren't ready to be the winner yet. You are lacking some skills or some knowledge or something that you need to be the winner. But our fastest moments of change and adaption happen during these moments of "losing". We learn the things we need to do, how to act, what we needed to do beforehand, or it ends up showing you the reality of where you are instead of the story life you have been convincing yourself. The only way you can get better is to know exactly what you need to do to get better. Then once you know, you can learn, practice, and improve to be better the next go-around. A test that is presenting its self to you is the CrossFit Open and our CF Open Intramural. The test is 5 workouts over 5 weeks. There will be an RX version and a Scaled Version of each workout. There will be some of you that will say that since you don't have T2B you shouldn't enter. Or that you don't have MUs yet, or that you can't lift that much weight. So what! Test yourself and see what you can do when you are put to the test. Don't be afraid to fail! What's the worst thing that can happen? You won't be able to do this or that. But maybe you got closer than you ever had! And that's a win! These competitions aren't scary if you take it for what it is. Boil it all down to one thing: you are testing yourself. Love these opportunities. Seek out these opportunities and you will become a most amazing version of yourself!:)
