How Bad Do You Want It? SEALgrinderPT
So yesterday we talked about the conversation I had with a Ranger buddy on “How bad do you want it?”. I was inspired and it was good to revisit this conversation and here it from a fellow warrior.
I hope that is a question (How bad do you want it?) that you asked yourself in the last 24 hours.
Floyd Mayweather – How Bad do you want it?
Don’t matter if it is for losing 5 lbs, making an A on that next test or crushing your next workout.
Ask yourself again “How bad do you want it?”.
Most days I am feeling jacked and ready to blow through Concrete walls. I love to take life full on and make it happen.
But I will admit — there are a few days (only a few) – where I ain’t 100 percent.
Sure I have hit some big highs — Standing on the Podium at BUD/S. Getting awards for Conservation work. Being a good Dad.
But I have been at the bottom too. I have laid in the surf freezing my butt off (I don’t have much body fat) with sand oozing out of my mouth. I thought I was going to end up in the Emergency Room.
Another low was as I failed out of BUD/S and saw my whole life crashing down. Everything around me was grey and dull. I wanted to crawl deep inside a hole and curl up and fade away.
On those days like that I dig a little deeper and one of my methods is to change my mental state. Often just a quick watch of an inspirational video or audio is all I need.
Almost daily i watch videos like this and read inspirational articles to help me change my state and Crush it <----
You see — the mental drives the physical. You always have to remind yourself of that and to fuse that into your daily life. When @#*& goes the wrong way you have to rally the mind and reset and get your body moving.
When I failed out of BUD/S and I got past my 4 days of Gloom — I asked my self “How bad did I want to go back to BUD/S?”
I wanted it worse than any amount of money – any physical thing. I knew deep down that I wanted it more than air itself. I would train like a Psycho Maniac and push past the pain to get what I wanted.
Those same questions and thoughts keep me going today.
