Who do you WOD for??
A little inspiration from Drew...
Outcomes are not guaranteed.
You can train and train for years to become better at a craft, but that training DOES NOT guarantee success. Not everyone wins championships. Not everyone gets the promotion. People who focus only on the outcome will face much pain after failure.
WE want to be PROCESS people.
Focus on the process. You CAN CONTROL the things you do day to day. Try to do your best each day and understand that failure is part of the process. HPA athletes see failure as OPPORTUNITY to improve. Failure is never going to be easy and by no means settle for it. However, everyone will fail at some point. How you RESPOND to the failure helps shape WHO you will become.
Choose to GROW.
"Great is the man who falls down six times and gets up seven"- paraphrased from Some old East Asian Philosopher
